Nice moderate trail, I wouldn't categorize it as hard. Amazing views at the end. In the summer it's a great 3 hour return hike, in the winter it's an even easier 3 hour return snowshoe trail.
Highly recommended.. here is a video of our snowshoeing trip earlier this year: https://youtu.be/7FVLNTGHriw

Beautiful short trail. The suspension bridge is incredibly busy with tourists. However, the trail itself is much calmer. Took about 35 mins a decent pace.

Great little trail! Took me about 1.5 hours return trip. Wear appropriate shoes as there’s plenty of rocks and roots to get snagged on. It was quiet when I went as it was raining lightly - none the less it was very peaceful. Orange markers guide you along the trail.

Easy trail with some stairs throughout, nice family hike. Gets very crowded.

Wonderful area to hike! Some parts were steep, but it added to the adventure. Gorgeous trees and river.

Easy peasy walk or great beginner trail for those just getting in to trail running. Great variety of woodwork, wider gravel trails and narrower dirt/root/rock trails.

It was easy to hike but the view is stunning ..There are lots of roots just be careful. Some trees have no orange sign and confusing.

Gorgeous swimming lake (late July). Even in late July we found a patch of snow around the corner. Views down to Vancouver centre.

on Dog Mountain Trail

Did this hike with my son during early summer. Lots of blood thirsty black flies and mosquitoes. Be sure to have good hiking boots as trail is mostly tree roots, rocks, mud, uneven terrain and some snow. But, the reward is the view at the end. Did this in approximately 4 hours including rests and time spent at the viewpoint. If your planning to bring your pet, expect the feet of your dog to be muddy after this hike.
And, watch your every step as a twisted ankle will ruin your day.

Mostly dry by now, there is some construction between the trail head and the lake. Watch for your steps, as there are a lot of roots. Bugs can be annoying, bring some spray, The view at the end is spectacular. Great for kids.

A lot of elevation and scrambling after the junction with the lower Norvan Falls Trail, with incredible panoramic views at the summit. My recording was 25 km and 1339 m elevation gain. Plan for 10 hours if you want to enjoy the views and visit the lake. Bring more water and food than you think you need and while I normally don’t use them I found hiking poles useful for steep areas.

Amazing trail for both snowshoeing & hiking! Great for solo hikers!

Loved it but was much farther than it says on here. We did have to park at the second parking lot which added a bit but it was 13.2 to get to the peak totalling close at 27km not the above quoted 18.9 - there were 6 of us that were all tracking.

beautiful view once you are on the top of the mountain, however this hike was a lot harder than we expected.
from beginning of the trail to the top is definitely longer than posted here. roughly 25km round trip including a small detour to the Norvan fall (very worth it!). Make sure you pack lots of water as it's a very long hike.

Great intensive hike if I don't have much time still want to have effective excerse in a natural environment, this would be the one.

Love the forest, varieties of trail surfaces, change mood as you go along old water bed, trails through falling trees, rockies roads with sharp stones large and small, hooping on tree stools in the muddy sections, braided tree roots... it's mostly shaded, so it's a good hike rain or shine. Efficient layout, hardly any flat boring sections, so it's perfect for me.

Good hike. Pretty easy. We took a detour which made it longer and a tad harder. The view is good from the top.

the hike was 30km out and back from the parking lot not the stated 19km. Very difficult. bring lots of water and Gatorade and fuel snacks. took 6 girls 10 hrs

View is spectacular! The trail is not so clean with wet mud and big roots but with the challenge comes the reward. I

Definitely get ready for an incredible hike. The mud made it so much fun. Watch the roots, but I would do this hike over and over. We took the dog and he loved it even on the leash. The shade, the views, the weather made this one of my favorite hikes. Not very busy on a Wednesday morning. Even the drive up was pretty.

Bring bug spray!!

amazing views

Will be great once the bridge is open again, but until then it’s not worth it - awkward, not well marked detour.

A very rewarding hike. The trail is still very muddy, with snow still covering a decent sized section of the trail. Wear appropriate footwear! The trail is quite rocky, and covered in roots, so watch your step! The view at the top is stunning, and defiantly worth the hike!

Great hike. Did it today. Not much to add only that when we got out of car at the parking lot, we were attacked by a tons of tiny flies. Thought they might be mosquitoes at first but fortunately not. Don’t let it deter you as once we passed the info shed to start the hike, they all dissipated..

We walked Dog Mountain today. There was a bit of snow at some places and a bit cloudy. When we got to the top we had a view. It was a nice day.

We went this morning. I recommend grippy shoes that you’re not afraid to get dirty, nice and muddy!

Thought this hike was going to be really easy but was surprised by how challenging it was due to snow still being on the trail in mid June. Good hiking boots are required. It has a. Ice mix of ups and downs with no real tough sections. One of the area’s best “Bang for your buck” hikes when you consider the reward.
