Hiked this to watch the sunset early January. Had no snowshoes and the snow was very deep. We just plowed through, although no recommend without snowshoes or skis now. Incredible view of the sunset

Did this hike in mid september of 2018. Had lots of rain and very muddy trails but amazing views and fun hike. Good leg burner. Camped at the saddle of MacDonald and Webb under a cool rock. Definitely recommend. Sweet bridges and trees. Very overgrown in some areas.

A good workout with different terrain than we are used to hiking the lower valley mountains. Very rough road on the way up it but it’s worth it by a long shot

We went on the 1st Sunday of the new year. We only hiked to Lindeman. It was a lot easier than I expected. It was trying to snow when we got there in the parking lot. By the time we reached Lindeman Lake it was starting to snow lots more!! The trees cover most of the trails so it made coming back down not so snowy on the pathway. Breathtaking scenery. We will be doing Greendrop in the bear future.

This seems like it is much better snowshoeing than hiking because it seems to follow a wide "skidder-track". Because of that, it is very easy to follow. Being from Vancouver, it was great to be on a trail that actually requires snowshoes. Deep beautiful powdery snow the whole way up. The view was partially obstructed by trees on the south side but North was very nice.

definitely worth doing again.

Did this hike in October! Definitely think everyone should do it. Views are beautiful especially the last 1km to the viewpoint. Not a busy trail as we only saw one other person hiking it. As we were coming down we hit golden hour and that was something else. 10/10 hike, a good workout as it was a steep climb but worth it!

Awesome hike. Road wasn’t that bad, but definitely needed a decent 4x4. Never found the propeller memorial but it may have been buried by snow. Last few km difficult to follow due to snow and lack of markings. Micro spikes proved very useful. Incredible views, very worth it

made it to about the 4km mark. (my garmin said 3.85) the snow level when from 4-6" to about 2' in about 20-30' elevation gain had to turn around never made it to the view point. (didnt pack now shoes)

Went yesterday, easy to drive to and a great challenging hike in the snow. We didn't need snow shoes (we did see other snow shoe prints) but we're so glad we had microspikes with us. A little slippery going down, watch for frosted or ice covered rocks. Poles would've been a nice extra.

4X4 with a decent clearance to the trailhead. From thereon, a good hike to the peak and if the weather is clear and sunny, you'll be rewarded with a good view otherwise, a good hike!

Today December 7, we started from parking lot at 9 am. We reached Lindeman in 45 minuted. The trail was moderately sloped and well maintained. But from Lindeman to Greendrop Trail was pretty challenging, not because it was steep, but because almost two third of the trail you have to walk is on uneven rocks. You have balance on rocks and find your way between red dots and you cant go fast. But it was worth going there. We reached Greendrop at 12:40, ate lunch and took 20 minuets break. It was so cold that my water bottle got frozen in few minutes. We returned to our car at 4:10 pm and it was already getting dark. It was Friday, we didn’t see any other hiker between Lindeman and Greendrop. Total two way distance is 12 km.

very rough road parked after 4 km from trailhead didnt want to damage my car was amazing views and decent hike wish I had snowshoe would of helped

one of my favorites

Wow... probably one of the most beautiful hike that I have ever done in my life... without my friend’s truck I would never be able to get there. Want to buy a 4x4 just so I can come back to here one day.

I went yesterday (18/Nov/11). I ran into snow about 3k before the main parking area so had to park and begin our hike there. This was my second time hiking Cheam and first time in the snow. I didn't expect as much snow as we encountered. Snow was very soft and the trails of course were self made. I summited without poles, crampons or snow shoes - so it's possible, but not recommended!

This has been one of my favorite trails for years. A beautiful ridge walk, a few easy scrambles and great peek through the eye of the needle just before the summit.

Yup, it's hard. Like another reviewer said, the climb is relentless. There is some climbing over rocks in spots and the trail can be a bit tricky to locate when you're going up. But the views from the top make it all worthwhile.

I reached Pierce Lake in 2.5 hours (it's at 6 km). For a really beautiful view of that lake, continue just beyond it. The forest clears and it's picture worthy. I reached the upper lake in 3.5 hours (it's at 8.1 km). The summit is roughly 40 minutes from here but unfortunately, I couldn't go all the way up, as I ran out of time and water. But I don't feel like I got gyped - the views are absolutely breathtaking from here!!

On the way down, I had refill my water bottle. There's a clear, fast-moving stream about 3.5 km in from the trailhead. Good to know if anyone else finds themselves in that situation.

All total, my GPS said it was 16.7 km round trip in less than 5 hours (not including stops). This is a challenging hike, for sure, but I would do it again.

The actual trailhead is just over 5 km from the main road. Like a previous reviewer said, you will definitely need a high clearance 4x4 with good tires to reach the actual trailhead. You won't make it in a car! I was able to drive my 4x4 to within 0.8 km of the trailhead but then I walked the rest of the way (call it added elevation gain).

The forest trail is single track and somewhat narrow in spots at the beginning. It's damp along the river which could be slippery for some. The newly constructed bridge is about 0.4 km in. From there, the climb is moderate and the trail does get a tad overgrown in spots. The first real nice, obstruction-free view is about 2.6 km up.

The Mount Slesse Commemorative Site Memorial is around 4 km up. The view is incredible. While there, I could hear rocks falling from the mountain across the way. Sadly, I was not able to summit this climb today due to time constraints. From where I parked 0.8 km from the trailhead to 4.3 km up and back down (a total of 10.3 km), it took me just over 2 hours not counting picture breaks. I'm planning to do this hike again with more time so I can reach the propeller memorial at the top.

On the way out, I encountered a dog with a radio collar in the process of trailing a cougar (I spoke to his owner further down the road). Just another excellent reminder that you are never fully alone out there. Be prepared!!

amazing hike, amazing, views very steep and hard hike bit worth seeing upper pirce lake and scrambling up to macfarlene

We made it up in our Ford Escape but I wouldn’t recommend going up without a decent truck. The hike on the other hand I would definitely recommend, stunning views and pretty easy going the whole way.

A friend and I just did this hike today, on October 20th, 2018. Great day for it this year, as the weather was perfect, around 15 degrees for our high, clear sky, zero wind and no snow at all at the propeller cairn currently.

Once you turn off of Chilliwack Lake Road, the trail head is a good 5+ KM up what becomes a pretty narrow gravel road which is quite washed out in several places, not just the last KM. High clearance 4WD vehicle with strong tires needed. That being said, in regards to some other reviews, I would say beware of stopping too soon to walk when you first encounter signs of the road looking rough, you may be adding 4KM or more to your hike on foot.

When you reach the trailhead area, Look for a wooden post sign with the trail name on it vertically, it is slightly in the trees to the right of the gravel road when driving up, there are also some pieces of pink and orange marking tape tied in the tree. Bridge to cross the river safely is intact. Trail is quite relaxing/easy in places and QUITE steep in others, mostly the last 1 KM or so to the propeller is the toughest. We also encountered some slippery sections with a lot of mud in this last KM. The hike was 6 hours total for us with 1 hour of stopping included.

Other suggestions: Bring layers/ a change of shirt if hiking on a day with higher degrees weather. We were sweating in the sun exposed parts of the trail and then cooling off quickly in the shaded.

Cheers and have a great, safe hike!

The hike up to Lindeman Lake is worth every second. The lake is stunning!

It was very hard as we carried heavy photography equipment with us and it was hot. Thankfully he started the trail at 7am to avoid the heat. All the pain and big effort, pays off once you get to top and you see the lake. Have good rest at the top so you are ready to go down legs need to be in good rest as you’ll squat like crazy.

I’ll never forget this trail it set up a before and after in my life.

Great hike. Perfect October fall weather but defintely cool at the higher elevation. Make sure you bring some light wool gloves. Pushed myself hard up and down with a nice lunch break at the top. Next time i will have to bring a collapsible fishing rod, as a fellow hiker pulled a nice pan fry with a few casts. Total up and down with photo stops and lunch break was about 5 hours.

Hiked this trail with my dogs today, was amazing! Moss covered everything, mushrooms and fungus out in full force, clear blue sky, absolutely stunning! Took me 2 hrs and 5 min to hike with stops for photos.
