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.

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

Excellent, completed in early evening wasn’t busy and not as hot as during day

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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...

A good hike for fitness and enjoying the fauna. Not a leisurely stroll for sure! Near the top it became misty and the forest took on an enchanted fairytale look

tough but worth it, check the weather and have proper footwear

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.

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

The views are incredible! Would 100% recommend bringing bug spray though.

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
