Awesome hike for views and trail is beautiful. The only downside is that it's busy. The Forest was lovely and we did this pretty quick with our three year old but he's pretty adventurous! check us out @loewenlife for quarry rock and others! Parking is difficult, try to go early.

Fun enough

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.

Fairly tough, slippery sections with chains . 3rd time and always enjoyable.

Amazing view and wonderful hike!

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...

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

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.

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.

An excellent beginner trail.

Challenging hike but extremely rewarding. Sometimes difficult to distinguish where markers and flags are heading because of the amount of trails leading to different summits or ridges. Hiked to the summit of crown on July 5th and portions of the hike were still covered in snow. A couple down hill portions of the hike are still covered in snow making it very difficult to descend. Definitely recommend hiking boots and/or crampons. Round trip just under 5 hours.

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!

Lots of markers along the trail- but be aware of alternate flagging tape leading to other summits (goat, thunder ridge, etc). Still lots of snow but it is packed down. Hiking boots are recommended as opposed to runners. No view from the summit today even though it was blue skies at the grouse chalet. Took us 2.5 hours to the summit. No snow at the final rocky part. No bugs.

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.

Amazing hike! Beautiful mountain ranges and valleys are visible from the top of the Mountain!! The hike it self is really scenic. On June 24th was plenty of snow-really dangerous conditions..trail easy to follow by footprints of other hikers left in the snow. The way up-down was challenging (steep, slippery, snow), it might be really dangerous without a proper footwear. Also, lots of bugs now! Take a repellent, sunscreen and sunglasses. Did in a quite phase from/to Grouse chalet in 6h.

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.

An intro hike with great view. Deep cove is also great for standup paddle boarding and picnics.

Hot and sunny up in the mountains! Still lots of snow and debris so the trail is a bit more difficult to navigate through. Watch your footing and be careful on the rocks.
