Amazing view, and great workout! but bring bug spray and lots of water.

not much gain but you have to focus on the trail. the lake is small but very peaceful place.

Fun hike and beautiful look out once you reach quarry rock but I’d put this more as moderate for families as there are a ton of stairs to climb which may not be great for young kids, varied ability or older adults. Can get pretty packed with people in the summer.

Moderately difficult hike. Steep with some easy scrambling required near the top. Going up is easier than coming down due to the many loose rocks, especially in the first third of the trail. Took under an hour and half to hike up to top but a little over an hour and half to descend because concentration on foot placement is needed to avoid slipping. Good workout and doesn’t take too long. Started around 8am on a Sunday morning. No one at the top except myself. Quite a few people going up as I was descending but not as many as you would find on the more popular hikes.

Loved it! All trails tell you to park in residential area but there’s a nice picnic area parking closer to the trail head. Starts out quite easy for the first 4K then gets more difficult but still moderate. It’s about 7k each way to the falls but we recorded 17 after the extra walk to the car. If you want to swim in the falls there’s some tricky rock spots so just be careful overall wonderful hike with gorgeous changing scenery. Note ***Once you reach the small suspension bridge follow the stream up to the falls.

definitely a longer hike about 13 miles roundtrip, the 2nd part is quite rocky with somewhat difficult sections. the views of the tree covered mountains and clouds resting on them is quite magnificent, and it's pretty much a rainforest throughout the hike. the waterfall was cool. dog friendly trail. overall was a great day, great workout! it took about 4-5 hrs.

Amazing view and wonderful hike!

This hike will defiently test your cardiovascular system. its steep and rugged terrain of which your constantly gaining elevation. Only 1 good viewpoint which is the lookout. However when I went Vancouver was covered in haze. I did this hike as a prep for golden ears. I would defiently do it again to keep my lungs in check. Took me 2 hrs 20 min up and 1 hr 10 min down.

Doable for a beginner but you will be pushing your limits if you are out of shape. lots of great views on the way up and down and the view from pump peak is great.

a handle of sections with snow, maybe 50 meters all together.

Great trail. Very steep and relatively dry right now. My two complaints are the trail is not well marked and the bugs. Make sure to bring a compass with you as there are some parts where cell service is spotty. I didn’t bring bug spray or a net but if I had I’m sure it would have been better! Worth it regardless!

Trail very well maintained, nice views. I’d say moderate level.

Must do for a trail during summer. Easy to moderate level and definitely worth the view you get to see at the top! Not to be missed out for sure.

Nice view at the end , little busy even though I was there at 9 am. Hike itself wasn’t very hard , very family friendly

Cute trail, the lake is beautiful, some snow patches still here and there. Quite muddy today, and swarms of mosquitoes and flies . Lots and lots and lots of flies...

Good hike today. Not too many people on the trail. I would avoid it on the weekend.

Quite a number of stairs (nothing like the Grind ofc), but a nice easy hike w/ a pretty view. Would recommend for beginners.
There’s also a flat wood railing near the top set of stairs where people can write their names!
Make sure to grab the staple donut at Honey Doughnuts & Goodies after your hike as a reward (:

loved the hike, not a fan of all the stairs lol

There is a high amount of foot traffic. Arrive early to find parking, and prepare yourself for lots of stairs. All culminates to a lovely view.

The town offers simple parks and gardens by the waterfront through which you can wander with ice cream, gelato, cinnamon buns, or doughnuts. Grab a seat after the hike and enjoy a beer and pizza, or rent a kayak for a few hours if you're up for more activities.

Worth a trip.

Good first hike of the season, just enough incline to make it feel like a hike. Haven’t done this hike for a few years and was surprised by how busy it was in the middle of the week. Be ready for every other person hiking to be gripping their phones or texting as they are hiking. Also passed a few people with music blaring which just doesn’t seem to fit the surroundings.

Nice easy walk through the woods; perfect for out of town guests who want a quick outdoor activity. Easy hike, great view. Can’t lose.

Took it with my kids and they all made it round trip!

Fairly easy route for a trail run. The first bit is fairly flat and smooth, while the second part gets a bit more rugged. It's a great trail to run with your dog since there is water along the entire route so they can cool off easily along the way.

I love this hike - though there are a LOT of stairs. A lot.

Good little jaunt with a great view at the end, bring a small snack/lunch and enjoy on the rock before heading back down again.

Great view at the top but loads of people around on a sunny day. Do recommend going early morning to avoid rush hour and enjoy a beautiful sunrise. Lots of stairs!

Nice, easy hike, but 75% still covered in snow which makes it a bit tricky at the moment. Overall beautiful scenery and two cute little lakes, but mosquitos...and LOTS of them. Not much elevation gain, so should be great to go shoe-shoeing in the winter.
