Did this hike for the first time on the May long weekend. Information by previous hikers is accurate. The trail is quite narrow in places and got busy through the day so people have to stop and allow quicker hikers to pass. Lots of loose rocks and roots which made coming down a bit challenging in places and very hard on the knees/ankles. We had no problems following the trail but you can easily miss a marker if you’re not watching for them. The viewpoints are spectacular and make the climb up worth the effort. I have a fear of heights and I was ok for most of the hike with a few exceptions both on the way up and down again, overall not too bad though and easily managed. After the last viewpoint the trek down is long and quite steep in places. Once we reached the end of the trail our knees and feet were sore and we both had proper hiking boots. The walk back to the south parking lot added another few km to the trip but we took the north parking lot trail and it was quite pretty, it was closed off last year so I was glad to see it open. Overall it was a challenging hike with beautiful views. Maybe not the best hike for someone with knee/ankles issues.

Well marked trail and in good shape. Very busy on a holiday Monday (to be expected) and a couple good views. We started early and did the trail counter clockwise hoping the sun would be out by the time we got to the lookouts. Took us 5.5 hrs with a stop for lunch.

perfect hike, start strong and then calm down to a chill walk. lots of loose pebble and stone, right footwear and careful foot placement are musts.

Love this trail. One of my all time favourites. After you make it past the steep section it’s rolling hills and beautiful views.

.... the trail can be rather rooty at times but for the most part , an enjoyable walk with a few ( not 10) spots with great views of Vancouver... with a beach at both ends and many options to modify the return journey it makes for a great lower elevation hike when the higher peaks are still covered in snow .

I did this hike for the first time a few weeks ago. Most of the views are overgrown (and we actually passed right by most of them without knowing) but there are a few that aren’t and those are really pretty! The best views happen early on in the hike, then the rest of the hike is mostly weaving through the forest - I personally loved this!

I’ll definitely be doing it again.

Very easy walk with views.

tail gets a bit confusing at points and the views at each piont get somewhat repetative, that's if you can find them all.

Good hike but of the 10 views I only really thought one was worth stopping for and the final loop around the lake is a little boring.

Hiked from Sasimat lake as butzen didnt open that early. Hiked to second view and returned taking the buntzen side of the small loop. Trail is dry and still well marked. Five ish hours at a moderate pace. Nice morning hike alittle tough on the knees.

I don't recommend. Views are not more than OK and the path is full of rocks and roots. You will see nothing except trees for 99% of your hike. You can find way better hikes in the area.

Hiked trail today for the first time found it to be in good shape views were great.
The trail was well marked with steep vertical at the start,sure footing required
Note this route is harder than the lake trail,the post that sugested to do the lake trail a couple of times first is good advice

I’ve done this a lot in the summer. Does anyone know the current conditions of this trail?

A bit of everything on this trail. No water sources at all other than two rancid swamp ponds. Pack water.

Great view!

Beautiful day for a walk with the dog's. it took 2.5 hours to walk the trail. Excellent for beginners or people with children.

Really satisfying hike with a mix of challenging and easy sections. We found 3 viewpoints on the ridge the rest seemed to be overgrown.
Bring plenty of water and hiking polls if you have them.
I wouldn't recommend this walk if you are unfit or have small kids.

Did this in July, some great views, saw a black bear in the trail but he wasn’t interested in us.

This is quite a lovely hike - intermediate level. Not all the vistas are marked and at most the trees have grown up. However there's at least 2 - 3 really good lookouts. The trail is not too smoothed out. :)

If you're doing it in warm weather bring your swim wear as a dip in the lake at north beach is GREAT after most of the hike is done. There's still the length of the lake to walk back where you can go for a swim at South Beach too should you choose to do so.

this is not a moderate hike. this is rough, very steep advanced hike.

Nice views I'd make sure your ready for this trail. Do Buntzen Lake trail couple of times before you hit this trail.

one or two nice views...the rest are blocked by trees

Being so close to downtown Port Moody, we found this trail to be very busy.

nice scenic stroll

Great view at one lookout point. I thought the signs were too small and not clear enough!

14k hike, takes us 4 hours. First 3k almost straight up a mountain (switchbacks) but then it gets easier for a while with a steep decline when closing in on buntzen lake. Nice scenery at the vistas. Not a hike to do alone, quite remote in areas. Hiking shoes/boots a must. Lots of water and snacks. Be bear-aware (bear droppings common) but rarely see large wildlife when hiking these trails. Really enjoy this hike :)

The views are spectacular
