Trail is well maintained and the view at the top is worth all the pain and sweat. Took me and my husband 8 hours round-trip as we stopped quite a bit/spent decent amount of time at the heli pad at the summit. The last stretch is pretty steep and there are ropes to help out. Take lots of water/snacks and start early. The trail starts behind the gravel parking lot near Sprockids park.

An awesome hike with a massive sense of accomplishment when you get to the top! Well marked (follow yellow!!) until the very top and then it was a bit less clear. I’m going up again soon and will try to bring some yellow flag tape to make it a bit easier. Enjoy it, the views are stellar!

Great hike, some fairly grueling segments closer to the top. Worth every drop of sweat. Summer hikers should cary lots of water and plan on an early start.

Great hike! Definitely challenging but worth it. If you have knee issues coming down is a little uncomfortable.

Amazing hike! Spent the night at the helicopter pad and no one else was around. Was difficult going up with backpacks as it is quite steep. Took about 3 and a half hours going up and 2 and a half coming down. The picture's don't do this hike justice, the views are incredible from the top on a clear day. The parking for this hike is the first parking lot when you hit the gravel road to the right. Don't go up the steep hill as the trail starts near the opposite gate. It is a super well marked trail following the yellow markers the whole way up. There is still snow at the summit but good hiking boots will manage fine.

May 6th/2019 Trail head is very easy to find. When going to Sprockids park, turn right at the end of the road and park on the side. The trailhead is on the far side of the road before the no trespassing sign. Prepare for elevation gain. There is snow above 1000m snowshoes are not necessary. I hiked in just boots. Some may want trail runners, micro spikes, or tack trax. Steep going up and down. Follow the yellow markers. It gets a little harder to find them near the top. Bring a lunch and lots of water. Gorgeous views. Definitely worth the climb.

Solid trail. Beginning trail head area and the summit are very cool.

My fiance and myself absolutely loved this hike. Lots of sweat and effort at the start, but once you get further up it has even parts to match the steeper climbs. The signs say 8 hours, but it took 5.5 hours walking and we spent an hour at the top. 2/3 of the hike are under the trees, while the last third offers fleeting glimpses of the view. Great way to spend the day, the views reach as far as Vancouver.

Beautiful trail! Follow the yellow markers.

Very nice hike with an amazing view from the top.

Incredible hike, I'd highly recommend this to hiking enthusiasts! No car needed from Vancouver. If you get to downtown take the 257 Bus to Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal then get the Ferry to Langdale (around $15 return), from there walk to Wharf Road and you find a trail at the end of the road that takes you to the trailhead (this saves you walking on the highway).
