Just did it yesterday, some parts a bit slippery, very good view!

It’s perfect for a relaxing run. No need to rush. Just take it in and enjoy!

Beautiful view and lots of space at the top make the end of this climb so very worth it. Tough switch backs at the beginning and evens out after 20 minute or so. Took some novice hiker (Friends) and they did great. Definitely recommend!

This is not a hard trail, I would rate it as moderate.

Went on Remembrance Sunday. The first bit up to Cabin Lake is well maintained but steep. The path is icy in parts so be careful. I would recommend going via Black Mountain and Cabin Lake which I think is shorter plus Black Mountain has views of Howe Sound.

View is excellent!! Well worth the trip.

Steep uphill climb in the beginning was a great warmup to start off the trail. After that, the trail is easy and pleasant. Mildly trafficked on the Saturday afternoon we hiked. Spectacular view at the top

Great hike. Viewpoint surrounded in cloud, couldn’t see anything. Snowing at the summit. Totally worth it. Ran into a crew working on the trail - THANKS!

Careful, as the other reviews state, this trail is poorly marked. It's easy to end up on another trail or veering into the bush. Use your common sense and trail map for this one. Getting back is equally as confusing so it might be an idea to take the ski slope back - something we wish we had done in hindsight, but only due to sundown approaching as we ended the trail. Despite some issues, the trail itself is great. Lots of scrambling and a little easy climbing. Amazing views at the summit and some wonderful views as you approach the final quarter.

Really nice. Found it to be well
Kept. Hard to find the start. View was cloudy but I assume normally is amazing.

If you can, do this hike on a week day. Very busy on weekends. Nice moderate hike with spectacular views at the top.
Easy access from Cypress parking lot.

It's a beautiful hike but get started early! It starts to get crowded just before noon.

superbe balade en foret avec bcp de lacs aux couleurs de l’automne. seul regret, le bruit de l’autoroute lorsque l’on admire la vue sur la sunshine coast

I liked hiking the trail counter clockwise. 3.5 hr loop for us.

Well marked trail. Incredible views.

Was such a good hike, soo busy! I went on a weekend. Silly me! But nether the less was such a great day. A decent incline and a little bit of climbing, but if you are unstable I would bring poles.

Go early so you can see the view without anyone! It was hard to get a picture without a person in it!

Nice hike, well-marked in the lower part but somewhat erratic nearing the St. Mark’s peak. Roots can be tricky in this last km of the hikes. Beautiful view from up there. Whiskey Jacks make their presence known.

Definitely a climb in the beginning but 100% worth it!!!

Love this hike little hard at first. But when you get to the top the view is breathtaking. Wow, it's amazing would recommend.

Love this hike. Wow, the view on top it's really amazing. I recommend to everyone.

Trail well maintained- fabulous view at top - bring nuts for very friendly chipmunks!

Very steep climb to begin with. Gets easier after couple of kilometres. We did it today on Wednesday and only ran into a handful of people. The view from the Bluffs is breathtaking. Spent some time there and had lunch. All together with the break it took just over 3 hrs. I would not call this trail hard. I’m not a very experienced hiker but didn’t find it particularly difficult. Lots of roots and rocks and some muddy areas. All in all well worth the effort!

Awesome hike ! If your planning on doing the last peak , bring a rope ! We scrambled up the last peak but completely worth it ! When you get to the sub peak , there will be markers to your left and markers to your right , i would stick to the left , less ice and snow . Much easier to come down !

Great trail and nice terrain! Bridge is washed out but the water is so low that you can walk on the rocks across it! Trail isint clearly marked at the bottom so have a map or gps! But definitely a great hike with great views!

on St. Mark's Summit Trail

Did this hike on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving long weekend. Started at 9:30 am and made it up by 11:30. I am a very new hiker and not in great shape. Took my time and still made decent timing. The first half is easy as far as the terrain goes but does involve some elevation gain. Super muddy and technical closer to the top and for about the last hour. Poles were a huge help due to the slickness! On a busy Saturday the space at the top is very limited but the views are pretty amazing. Once you get to the top you'll see the main rock to catch a view but if you go back to the trail and continue you'll grab a great view of The Lions and another viewpoint further below. Took a few couple minute breaks and with a half an hour at the top it took me 5 hours. It was very busy on the way down so had to stop a lot to share the trail. Enjoy!! :)

Had an outstanding experience, and the local fauna were more than accommodating.

Yours in good faith,


Beautiful fall hike close to Vancouver! Not busy early in the morning!

Amazing views at the end!!
