Nice easy walk to the falls, also known as lower falls trail. Only took 30 mins to get to them. Relaxing to sit on the rocks at the falls

Dogs cannot go beyond the climbing ropes so unless you're prepared to leave them behind, you can't summit.

Amazing hike did this june 3rd easy to follow great views and had some left over energy so went back to the junction and also did allouette mountain which still had a lot of snow during the steep ascent but made for a fun slide down total trip took 6hrs including stops and breaks

The start of the trail is steep and has no warnings but once you make it up the terrain gets better. Once you make it to Small Lake that’s where the fun begins! Great views from some look out points. Truly worth the reward if you’re up for a challenge. Markers are easy to spot. Bring a walking stick or find a nice branch. Happy hiking

Great easy hike with so many great views of the river and the mountains! It was lovely and quiet. We only ran into three other groups along the hike, everyone was friendly. The dog loved the trail as well!!

Hiked this on June 2nd. Lots of snow and slippery spots especially on the descent so be careful and have proper gear. Beautiful 360 degree view at the top so well worth the grind of the final ascent to the summit.

Just did this trail. still significant snow past 1100m. beautiful old growth and wide open alpine. if you're going relaxed pace with a hour break at the top, give yourself 8 hours. amazing views and doesn't dissapoint...

The trail was quite enjoyable, the moderate status was very fitted. I found the some of the points of the trail confusing as to which route to follow, but all in all this app helped a lot with that. I wish it was just a closer trail to the water. I will go to Golden Ears again, but try a different trail.

Completed this hike yesterday May 26, 2018. Somewhere between the top and the west canyon parking lot I lost my jacket. It is a grey jacket stuffed into a small grey stuff sack. If you found it please leave a comment here. I will pay a cash reward for its return.

Up, up and keep going up!
Grouse Grind on steroids and way less crowded.
Went up on Monday, May 21st there is still a little bit of snow after the rope climbing.
Great workout and hard on the knees coming back down.
Would do it again though!

Easy family trail, lots of access to the creek.

Nice trail. We took the east west connector (bridge) and came back on the Golden Ears / West Canyon trail. West Canyon is much more challenging than the East and we ended up in the West Canyon parking lot. The walk back to our car along the gravel road was super dusty and awful. I think it might have worked to take a right on the Menzies trail instead of going all the way down to the West Canyon parking lot as we saw the trailhead near our parking lot.

It's basically just a walk, not much strenuous hiking involved, but some of the views are amazing, especially on clear days. Also very crowded with people and their dogs or small children, so I'd suggest going in the morning.

nice short hike with some incline. Great for kids and beginners.

trail has snow in areas but accessible now. no snow on scramble leading up to final summit approach. crampons optional. love this trail. best hike in area for 4 hours total.

The hike took about 6.5 hours round trip There were some beautiful views at the top of blanshard needle about 10 people on the trailHad a tough time navigating. Hiked it in Aug 2017. Well worth it though!

Really lovely trail, not difficult at all but a long enough walk to warrant the drive. The scenery was beautiful, not just the mountain views but the trail itself was just a perfect depiction of west coast wilderness

It was a walk in the park.

Took my wife and 2.5yr old for a hike today. It was muddy, but super cute to watch my daughter climb over the exposed roots and climb up the boardwalks over the little streams. Very short hike with some of it on gravel path.

Only nice part is the fact its short. Had one view of the lake for 5 min. It was pretty ugly. Would not go again.

Wonderful escape from the city and it's so close! I ran the blue trail today and found it well marked and so beautiful! Will do again.

Nice hike on a sunny winter's day. Be sure to cover the low falls trail on your way back. Nice views of snowy mountains on clear days.

I didn’t get to check out the whole trail but I liked what I saw. Brought my toddler and preggo wife and they did ok. The toilet up next to the falls was pretty nasty...I’d sooner do as the bears do.
