Great trail. Really good taken care of

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.

May 5. Did this hike with a couple of friends, and although we had to park in the overflow lot, we didn’t really encounter many people. One small section (less than 100m) had a bit of snow, but nothing significant. Hiked it in shorts and a t-shirt and hiking shoes, no crampons or microspikes necessary. Beautiful view, a decent amount of elevation without being an outdoor staircase (see: Grouse Grind), and the scenery along the trail made well worth the trip.

Lots of dogs, if going on weekend try to be there before 8am, otherwise it’s too crowded.

Great hike. Lots of stairs at the beginning and some in the middle. The view was great but LOTS of people. Parking is also a challenge while there.

Walking up from Cap U is a little pointless. Not much to see at the bottom end of this.
Had to take detours as parts of this trail were closed. What I was able to do was fun and I'm looking forward to when this is 100% open again.

Very easy walk through the forest with gorgeous views of the forest. Anyone who is able to walk quite a while will be able to complete his trail. The water was flowing very fast when my friend I went which limited our view of the falls, however, the view of the falls wasn’t too impressive.

Very steep and somewhat boring. Still better than the Grouse Grind -- less people and less stairs, more natural terrain. Walking on snowpack for the last .5k or so, otherwise clear.

Great trail there is quite a bit of up and down but it is a rewarding view. Like others have said it gets kind of crowded. If you turn up at a busy time then you might have to jockey for position to see the view, however at the end of the trail almost at the rock there is a small ungroomed trail on the left that leads to another portion of the rock that is almost just as beautiful and it is very secluded.

So nice view now this days. I fully recommend . Such a nice view.

One of my faves!! its aleays different every time you go. each season makes for a new experience. The look out is a pretty sweet reward =)

I wouldn't say this trail is easy. its steep at sections. beautfiul views but very busy. best time to go is during the week.

A great trail if you aren’t interested in an all day event. Lots of stairs and can get buy on a nice day. Once you get near the top you have to make sure you take the right path or you might end up continuing off to another trail. The hike could take about 1-2 hours. I have gone about 5 times now and I still love going

Nice quick hike with a great reward at the top.

Do this hike first thing in the morning! So many people start showing up around 10am and it takes away a bit of the beauty. We did it 7am and it was so lovely in the forest and got to really enjoy the rock at the top to ourselves.

great view

April 21. From first and furthest overflow parking lot to top and back to car in exactly 3 hours. Very rocky (dry river bed). Going up is ok, it’s like an easier and longer Grouse Grind. Coming down sucks as you have to really watch your step as to not fall on the lose rocks. The view up top is pretty, nothing special though in my opinion so wasn’t worth the climb for me. Usually don’t hike around Vancouver because too many people but not a lot of people were on this one so that was nice. Lots of snow up top still but had no problem in my hiking boots.

Great workout but dont have high expectation for the waterfall. Can do the lynn loop instead if you want something shorter.

I went for hiking with my wife and couple of friends on Sunday morning. It was beautiful and the weather was excellent. The only problem is parking there. You need to go early in the morning to find a parking spot. Other than that it is one of my favorite hiking spot.
