i wanted to get a head start for sunrise and I am really bummed I couldn't make it to the trailhead. I thought I read the reviews for this hike but apparently I did not. that being said, I've uploaded some pictures of the road so others don't make the same mistake I did.

I can handle bumpy, rocky roads and maneuvering potholes, but there are small trenches in the road. by the time I reached the second one with about 5k left, i admitted defeat and drove back to town.

YOU NEED AT LEAST 1/2 METER OF CLEARANCE AND 4WD!

Great hike, you will need an all wheel drive or 4x4 to get to though. We had a convoy going of all wheel, 4x4 and a Honda civic fwd the civic almost made it to the end. But definitely not recommended as he got stuck.

The trail itself is a mixture of wooded forest out to open trail and then scrambling across rocks. Moderate /hard but well worth it.
The reward up the top with the new tent platforms and paths are great.

Reward yourself with a swim. The waters beautiful!

We went to the second peak. It was my first time. Took us about 1 1/2 hours.
Breath taking views. Neat that you have such a variety of terrain to travel :)

Great quarter-half day hike!! Did this after a day of climbing. Super fun scramble. Definitely recommend hiking shoes for this one, as the terrain is solid 3rd class. Met some wing suit base jumpers on their way up as we were coming down, so we ran down the trail and got down in time to watch them in flight!

Really fun scramble. Ropes “required,” but wearing grippy hiking shoes or approach shoes, didn’t need them. Though Stawamus peak one was more challenging terrain

Beautiful mountain but it makes you see everything around it that's bigger and you feel like a sissy...

Super fun! Definitely try to at least make it to the 2nd peak if not 3rd. Rocks can be slippery so be careful. Chains & ladders are provided to help with the steepness of some parts.
There is one ladder where people have stuck their stickers on if you wanna bring a sticker along!

Beautiful fall

Did 3 peaks took me 2.5 hours was so beautiful

Take lots of water with you

Really great hike with an intense uphill, but definitely worth it for the views at the top! Trail can get super busy as it is very popular, and definitely worth going to the 2nd peak since the top has a lot more room for groups to have their own space to rest and have lunch. Definitely need to be in shape to do this hike especially since at the top you need to pull yourself up using a chain on the rocks.

I did peak 2 & 3. The stairs at the beginning were pretty exhausting for me as I just started going on hikes, but after that it went well. The view is amazing!! The way down was hard on my knees and ankles and I was sore for two days, but I would definitely do it again!
Great hike

Very difficulty uphill climb. The trail starts with wooden stairs and then becomes more of a scramble with rock stairs and finally chains and ladders. Worth the view!!!! Absolutely spectacular!

views were amazing and the trail is really well maintained.

Second peak has the best views according to most, I am inclined to agree but it’s entirely subjective. Try all three, all pretty spectacular

This is an amazing hike in the backcountry, however, the gravel road towards the trailhead is extreme rocky and uneven. We rented a 4WD Jeep and still were afraid to go further than the 14th marker. The final 3(?) km to the trailhead we continued to walk. Some passing by cars offered to take us with them and seriously the conditions of the road got worse. I would have been to afraid to get a flat tire though. But other than that, the hike offers a variety of “underground“ conditions - from, woods and mud to gravel and rocks. We did the hike yesterday and even went for a quick jump into the lake. Nevertheless, parts of the lake are still frozen. If only hiking there for a day trip, bear in mind that the time getting to the trailhead takes an extra hour!

Awesome hike. Just the right amount of steep sections and plateaus. Still a bit muddy in sections, but those kind of add fun to it. Snow still at the top, so wear layers. All wheel drive and a vehicle with a fair bit of clearance is ideal as the forest service road has a few washouts and bumpy bits.

I want to do this hike this weekend and I’m wondering how difficult it is to get to the trailhead?

My vehicle is all wheel drive but doesn’t have a lot of extra clearance. I’m in an Audi Q3. Does anyone know how it looks exactly?

The best hike. Kids and dog like it too. Took gondola down , pay 15$ for adults and dog. So worth of money than knee pain.

Great hike, well marked, food and drinks at the top, epic views and a ride back down...no excuse to miss leg day.

Great little hike - loads of tourists but easy for family or quick stop off en route to Whistler!

Great trail. Went in March very rainy and wet, and snow at top

Did all 3 peaks and WOW are my legs mad at me. Got up and was at the trail head by 6am... no one was there (except for campers). My husband and I are in moderate shape and found the hike to be a heck of a challenge but doable. The hike to peak 1 was a good elevation gain with ladders and chains spicing it up. The view was insane. The hike to peak 2 wasn’t as tough. We forged on to peak 3 and should have stopped at 2. Peak 3 wasn’t well marked and the view paled in comparison to 1 or 2. The decent from peak 3 was a knee knocker. Lots lots lots of bouldering and not enjoyable. Took us 5hr 20min to do all 3.
When we do it again we will just to peaks 1&2. Great hike worth the effort!

Loved it! Lots of stairs but so peaceful within the trees. I did peak 1 and 2. I’m a fairly fast hiker and took me about 2.5 hrs which included photos and snack breaks at the tops

Excellent short and sweet hike
Go early to avoid crowds

I have done this trail today in time 1,30. The weather wasnt good, but still nice walk. Very easy, i am in love with this forest.

very nice hike, but getting to the trail head was a real challenge. extremely rough road once you enter the unpaved section .
