we were going to do the suspension bridge but decided not to after seeing the price. we joined the trail on the way back. nice lookout points and you can get down to the river in some areas.

Really nice hike for novices. Challenging! The first 1/2 hour is a bit grueling and uphill, but after that its fairly well varied. On a clear day, you can see Garibaldi from the peak, as well as an awesome view of the lions and Cypress ski area. Mid June, there was still a considerable amount of snow and sturdy hiking boots are highly recommended. Cabin lake looks like it would be a great spot to take a dip but it was still ice-covered. Maybe in August!

Beautiful! But actually there are no dogs allowed on the Yew Lake Loop. The loop is VERY short (took us under 40 minutes for sure). We went mid June and there were patches of snow. So I think Mid June is the best time to start going on this hike.

The hike started off smoothly until the first stream crossing via the Old Strachan Trail. Once we crossed over, we kinda lost the trail. There were many blow downs obscuring the path. On top of that, we had to deal with the snow, which further made it harder to discern the correct path to take. The orange markers were few and difficult to find. We basically followed a previously recorded track and manage to come across a part of a plane wreckage. After arriving at the south peak, we contemplated whether we should continue to make a return loop via Christmas Gully and How Sound Crest Trail. We could hear water rushing thru the gully. It was then decided that the best return route was to take T-33 which switches back down to the parking lot. Overall, this hike would be better experienced if there werent as many blow downs and ice. Its a good thing we had our microspikes and poles with us. As for the views, they are one of the best.

Gorgeous leisurely hike - took a slight detour and visited the Salmon Hatchery!

Nice falls

One of the most amazing views!! This hike is perfect for beginners looking to step up their hiking game. The trail begins with some switchbacks, then you are mostly in the forest for the rest of the way. Incline, length, and difficulty is moderate with the best reward at the top! Pick a clear day or you won't see much!

Great hike, last third has some snow coverage but nothing too difficult or deep. First 2/3rds are pretty quick with an excellent path. Final 1/3 gets more rugged with roots and rocks etc. Finish up with the Bowen view spot, then cruise the highway like path back to the lot.

Quick hike up the green ski runs with great viewpoints at the top of sky chair. Great with snow or in summer.

Hiked up jersey shore from the cypress viewpoint to get some vertical. Once you hit the skyline trail is flat and easygoing.

Great little hike to get the season started.

Only hiked to Eagle Bluffs. Steep climb at the end once you hit the rock slide. Trail before that is very nice, with a gradual climb. Difficult rating due to final techincal climb/scramble.

A little difficult to find parking at the bottom of the trail. The hike was nice, we added on the lost lake trail at the top and came down on the Baden Powell trail. I would definitely recommend doing the same to get some better views!

Did the hike today. Still quiet a bit of snow. The northern trail that summits black mountain has much less snow and better views then the cabin lake trail.

I went there several time, really like it.

It is the first snowing mountain I climbed, little bit challenges, but I like it! Beautiful mountain view!

One of my Favourite The view is fantastic.

I went hike last year. It was quite hard to find the starting point. It is quite steep but the view is a beautiful

Great first half to Magnesia Meadows. Beautiful campsites and lake to refill the water bags. Difficult and technical trail up to Magnesia Meadows. Long trudge down to Deaks Lake and out. Worth it for the first half tho!

Nice little trail, quite urban to start with, we started from Marine Drive, but was quite quiet along it, not too taxing, it's a gradual incline to the dam, good shelter in the trees and pretty surroundings too!

Nice walk lots of awesome bridges and great views.

The trail is in great condition and easy to maneuver across the creek as the bridge is washed out. Make sure you take the 10 minutes to walk to the lake before crossing the bridge. Pay attention to the trail markings as there are many different trails, you could get sidetracked easily.

Wear hikers over runners... terrian on the Shore Pine trail is rocky... the beacon lane trail is a simple 10 min walk from parking to the lighthouse lookout

We got a bit lost not taking the right turn and didn't manage to do a loop just went up and back because the time we spent lost. Beautiful view, still well covered in snow.

We did this trail yesterday. Still completely covered in snow, so prepare to walk through snow the entire route. Trail is still easy to follow as there are signs along the way. We were the only ones at the summit in the morning. Beautiful view and worth the trek through the snow.
