this one was a challenge for me. going up was fun but coming down was really hard. The middle section was the hardest for me but it was worth it. I did it in August in the hottest day. was a great accomplishment for me.

A good winter hike. only small patches of snow on the flat valley bottom portion of the trail. lots of hikers. Moderate hike easy walking but a good distance 17km from parking lot.

Beautiful hike and every looking point was stunning. I did this hike mid Jan 2019, no snow or ice but lots of trees had been up rooted which took out parts of the path. It's a good hike up though, great exercise. Views are worth it.

Great trail to quite a nice view. 3-4 creek crossings to mind your footing over. Other than that quite wet and snow at the top for the last 1km or so. Managed without crampons or snowshoes though.

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.

Before my review, I think I left my avalanche shovel by the first lookout of elk mountain (if not there, it's in the parking lot). If anyone has seen/moved/taken it, could you contact me at 7783189930. Thanks!

Did this hike in Dec 31. Hike up to Elk was very icy, and microspikes were useful if not necessary. Beyond Elk, snowshoes were handy, but I think we could have done it without. Great views of the surrounding mountains and baker as well. We only went to the false summit of Thurston.

Did this hike with my bestie today and I gotta say, waist deep snow is not a whole lot of fun to hike in, especially when you don’t have the proper gear! But it was an amazing experience, and an even more amazing view ☺️

We were hiking for a total of about 7 hours today. after you reach elk (which is straight ice on the way up be careful), it turns into knee high snow and then thigh high, and then waist high the closer you get to Thurston!! We made it within 1 km of Thurston and had to turn around due to the snow and not having proper gear and day light.

Definitely recommend this trail though! I will have to retry after winter is over ❄️

I loved it for the view and the challenge. beautiful forest. but the first half is a straight up stream bed. a LOT of rocks and chances to turn an ankle.

Hiked on Dec 8th! Not enough snow to snowshoe but the trail gets very icy the higher up you get. We didn't have spikes or crampons but definitely bring them if you have them. Many areas were inches of solid ice hidden beneath a dusting of snow so it was very sketchy and there was a lot of slipping. It was still a fun adventure! On a clear day I imagine the view is still spectacular (but it was super cloudy for us).

Cute switch backs and great view of Hope ! The trails are starting to ice up a tad but easily done in regular shoes/boots yet.

4X4 with a decent clearance to the trailhead. From thereon, a good hike to the peak and if the weather is clear and sunny, you'll be rewarded with a good view otherwise, a good hike!

Hiked yesterday. There is snow along the entire trail. The trail was packed down, so there was no need for snowshoes. It was quite icy and slippery. Wearing spikes would have made the hike much easier and safer. The view from the top was stunning.

One of my favourite hikes in Vancouver. Still accessible as of the 2nd December.

First 1.7km is a slog with very steep sections (about 550m elevation). This also makes for a tricky, technical descent which probably deserves its hard rating.

Second half is a nice amble with slight incline. Views are out of this world.

Challenging hike, good trail but lots of slippery stones and erosion so get ready to use your balance.

Great trail. Last time we did it on November 17. Great views, lots of snow, but still doable.

I'd say it's our toughest one-day hike so far. 30km, 1600m elevation. ~40% covered with snow. Took us around 12hr with all the stops. I guess we could've go faster, but there were so many spots, where we wanted to stop and just enjoy the views.

Many people couldn't make it to the top, cause of snow.

Gators, crampones and warm waterproof boots are required.

Aug 4th, Great views. Easy to miss turn off as there no markers. Look for is after the wooden bridges. Then it is a steep climb up the gully. The 360 views are stunning. The lions, Gibson and Mt. Baker on a clear day. Going down was a bit of a challenge. not well marked. reached a ski run and walked down. Took 6 hours total. Bring extra water.

My wife and I went up last week. Absolutely stunning views at the top. The first few km’s are pretty boring until you hit the real trail. It gets steep from here to the top.
Moving pretty quickly we got up in 2hrs and 20mins.

Went up the majority of this trail yesterday. Had to turn around just before the scramble section because of snow and ice.
Beautiful trail that really works the legs out on the way up and down.
5 hours return trip with a short break at the top for a bite to eat

Hiked Nov. 19: Forested trail with shading/no views throughout. Steeper sections, but not bad if you pace. Slippery tree roots throughout, so be mindful if hiking in wet weather. No snow/ice on trail so far; just frozen water at the top. Only saw 2 other groups + some bikers on a Monday.
As a spoiled Vancouverite, I’d say the summit view is pretty underwhelming (but nice, no doubt).

This is a great hike. It ranges from steady uphill to steep uphill with a few milder portions so you need to be fit. It is mostly Forested and the views are into the back country once you are there. it really is around 12km up and back we are fit hikers it took us 2 hours 15 min up and 1 hour 45 min down.

we hiked up the creek bed on remembrance day from the st marks trail. the creek has frozen over in spots and is quite sketchy with icey rocks. caution required, but the views from the top are spectacular. we came down via ski runs to save time

Fantastic hike on a clear November day! The views are stunning. Five hours round trip if you are fit and fast!. The distance shown for this hike is not accurate - my Suunto GPS said 18kms round trip and not the 12.5km as posted above.

Absolutely stunning place. No one else on the trails, walked right into a winter wonderland. We brought our snow shoes and did a hike up Mount MacLeod the next morning after sleeping in the hut. Wouldn't go up without snowshoes or crampons in coming weeks. Also wouldn't call this a particularly easy hike. Steep part for the first 1/3 of it and then creeks frozen over gave it some obstacles.

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!

A good climb. I took the Assault Route from Collins Road and it was less than an hour to the top. Only a couple wet spots in mid-November. Clouds blocked the view when I arrived at the summit around 10:30am but cleared within an hour.

Beautiful easy hike, although the length makes it harder than a walk in the park.

Very nice hike!
A little bit steep in some parts but View on Coquitlam Lake is rewarding the efforts!
Did it on November 12.
Do not recommend to go for this hike after heavy rains

Started at St Georges, took me 1h30 to get to summit. Did the loop- highly recommend it!frozen lakes up there. Beautiful views. Went down and up grouse mountain, took Gondola down. Then Badden powel trail back to car. Total time 3:30.
