that was a bit of a grind hike!!!
Fun!!

I did this trail on Sunday with friends. Several sections of the blue trail are closed for active logging and it is not possible to get to the viewpoint. If you are looking for views, perhaps try a different park.

on Heart Lake Loop

gorgeous on a sunny day!

Great hike but only saw 3 of the 10 views

Did this hike last weekend and we were the first ones to hike all the way to the top in the new snow fall. Really soft and deep snow from second lake

Beautiful day, getting near the flats, it was snow covered. Going beyond would require snowshoes or microspikes.

that was fun! we did the loop past whyte lake and along baden powell trail towards the highway and hit the helipad.
from there it's all downhill!!

Very nice hike. Did it around June 27th 2018. I would do it again. Good weather, Good for beginners. If you looking for a special view this is it. If you go to the left on the beach you’ll find half of a cave, and along the wall there might be some rock stacks. Good outing.

Great little hike, muddy and steep in spots.
Some scrabbling is needed.
Multiple trail heads which I have been told all take you to the same view point. We found one on the right side, closer to the water that took us up without any issues. The trial heads are not marked, just foot paths worn into the surrounding nature.
It is somewhat challenging but we accomplished it in roughly 1.5 hrs round trip from the parking lot, with a 9 and 11 year old.
An entirely new way to appreciate the stunning view that Cox bay has to offer.

Very nice trail. Half of it is through the marsh and half is along the seaside trail. Very busy but flat (good for kids). There’s a wonderful playground at Centennial Beach for the kids to burn any excess energy and a concession with hot food and ice cream in summer.

This was an amazing little walk. View was spectacular. The sun came out on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of January so the short trail was a bit crowded. I can just imagine how crowded it can get in the summer. Even the beachfront houses were a sight to see. Would love to go back.

Just did the Blue loop today. Beautiful day with a great view. The non maintained section of the blue trail coming down is in great condition, no troubles. When we got near the bottom where most trails cross we tacked on the red loop to finish off just over 2 hours with a photo break at the top. Very wet in places and with the recent wind storm lots of downed trees and branches so be careful not to trip

It’s a fine hike, but be prepared for a lot of uphill. Mind you, I’m only in moderate shape, but by the end and 4.5 hours later, I’m beat. The look out shows an amazing view of the country side. Unfortunately, the lake is snowed over, so the end might not be as you’d expect... that is until the spring

There are no signs or trail markers and several routes that branch off. It's important to have a map or someone who has hiked it before to not loose your way. I wouldn't rate it as easy though because of the incline - that's hard on people with physical limitations/restrictions.

A nice easy hike through the trees, at the peak there’s a place to take pictures before heading down to the road by Sinclair Canyon!

Nice walk with great panoramic views of sea to sky. Great plane and wildlife spotting activities. Saw some bald eagles, otter, and a bunch of water birds.

My most favourite hike ever

Great hike

Biked trail in a few hours easy.

Nice view at the end!

Stayed overnight at the end of the trail before turning around and coming back back in May. Watched the sunset over the mountains, it was a fantastic view, would definitely recommend it to anyone including beginner hikers. Trail is well kept and there is flowing water sources all along so it made it easier not having to carry multiple litres on my back.

Went a while back on my bike and it was a pretty quick ride. Had to get off and walk at some points where it was too steep and the gravel was loose but leads to a nice waterfall.

This trail has everything you’d want in a hike. Water features, amazing outlooks, some challenging stretches. Definitely recommend. Wasn’t as crowded as I was anticipating.

I did this over the summer and oh boy. If you are doing this hike, know what you're getting in to. If you hike like a normal person, it's about 2 hours to alter flats, where I overnighted. I was then up bright and early (about 5:30) for and 11 hour there and back again. Like every other comment says YOU NEED WATER. There is basically none from the flats to the emergency shelter. speaking of the shelter, once you're there, you have another 45mins to an hour to the peak. A bit of a grind but definitely worth it. It was the most fun part of and coming down we slid down the snowpack. 10/10 would reccomend. That was the fastest I went that day. All in all, 2 hours to the flats, 6 hrs up, 5 hrs down and another 2 out. Take your time and have fun cause the view is stunning! oh Yeah, and that scary thing to the left is edge peak. don't worry about it.

It’s a wonderful trail with many entrances, a fun Kids Park, à couple of Dog Parks. There’s a Waves & a Starbucks downtown for a nice break.
