Did this hike today. Took three hours but rested for 30 min at the top. The trail crossing the bridge at first lake is closed so you’d have to go around the long way. Found this hike easier somehow with the snow as the cold air helps keep your temperature down but very wet. Highly recommend hiking shoes for the snow. It’ll be very easy to get your runners soaked !

Did this hike yesterday and I was not prepared for how much snow there was! The entire trail is covered in deep snow so I would suggest bringing appropriate shoes. The dog mountain “summer trail” was closed so we were unable to get to the top. Instead we did the winter trail which was still nice but no view. We passed the first lake but that was about it. Will have to wait until more summer months to do the summer trail.

A difficult, but enjoyable hike. We stayed the night up at the lake and there were only a few other small groups up there.

What a beautiful trail. Well marked path with lots of people using the trail. Not long but the top is amazing would definitely go again in the summer

Great payoff for a very easy and short hike with minimal incline. Did it with crampons mid January

Busy trail but beautiful hike through the forest. Tolerated very well with hiking shoes for walking and running. Some icy areas at the last 300m stretch before the view. Individuals with snowshoes needed to remove them around this last stretch due to icy inclines

Easy enough to do with hiking boots and yaktrax as the trail is very packed down. A little too busy for my liking but worth the view!

Today, we went for snowshoeing. It was quite easy walk. 2 to 3 hours around trip. Weather was very nice. Quite a busy trail. Beautiful up there

Amazing scenery!

good snow shoe trail, can get too busy. easy to use just crampons instead of shoes. great view up top.

I wasn't prepared for this since I caught snow at the top but I had my ice trackers to throw on my runners( something I like to keep in my back pocket for any mountains) ...and I brought my little out door cooking set and heated up soup and pulled out some home made bread ..... it was extremely windy up there( still mastering outside cooking though ) I would do it again in a heart breat though.

This one I love snow or no snow. The inclines are great to get you sweating and feel a little challenging but it's well worth it in the end , make sure you pick a day where the sky is clear for the view, when the snow comes, so do the whiskey jacks so bring some bread or seeds. It's a great hike for the family too or beginners in snow shoeing, safe. And dog friendly.

Thanksgiving hike.... very busy and slippery on tree branches... not an easy hike I would say more moderate. But so worth the views at the top on a clear day.

Went really early in the morning at sunrise. The hike itself was easy but would recommend good hiking shoes. The trails consists of mostly tree roots and mud. Tree stumps, logs, and bridges are placed along the trail to get across creeks and mud. Great views

Did the trail last Saturday morning. Well marked and very busy with great views from Dog Mt. Not very challenging for a moderate trail but some tricky footing with the roots. We came back via Suicide Bluffs which made the total length closer to 6.6km and only saw two other people on this section. Stunning views from the lookout before (clockwise travel) Suicide Bluff also. Bugs not bad at all this time of year either.

Very challenging and hard trail, but very nice. We started from Deep cove and made it all up to the deep backcountry of Elsey Lake. We were sleeping in the hut where a mouse was providing us a companionship. Next day were the peaks of Mt. Seymour on the programm, with a beautiful view. Nice hike which took us 2 times a 8 hours walk. We were really lucky with the weather.

normally love this hike and as I'm not from the area, was very excited to get up there yesterday to do it again. unfortunately, we decided to turn back to the car before we even made it to the trail head. to say it was buggy is an understatement. we felt like we were in Steven King's "the mist". you couldn't take a step without having atleast three fly into your face, one in your ear and a couple in your nose or mouth. it was brutal! And we weren't the only ones. people were running back to their cars, covering their faces lol. will try again in a few weeks. hopefully the bugs will have died down a bit by then, the more the snow melts and the drier it gets.

but the hike itself is beautiful. beautiful view at the top. moderately challenging for people who aren't super fit and athletic but more nice weather hikers, which I like because I can't do super challenging but easy is too easy most of the time. it can be slippery with some tricky footing so wear good shoes, probably actual hiking boots, though I've done it in runners but at times had to be extra careful not to twist an ankle.

Fantastic Scenery

Did this hike on a Saturday morning with a stop at Mystery Lake and Brockton Peak. Great trail and the app navigation works very well. Pretty busy on the way out but saw few people on the way in. This might be because we took the Old Trail to Pump Peak. Not marked and some scrambling but enjoyed every part of it. Great panoramic views. Bugs were not too bad as there was a pretty good breeze in the open parts.

I really like this one. It's a great one to take a beginner on and has a great view for such medium effort to get there!

Nice hike but you can go more than 100 feet without running into someone else. So if you like a social climb this is perfect!

Short, sweet, technical and pretty views at the end. The downside is that it became very popular and unless you go very early morning, it's a zoo out there.
