I’m sure it would have been pretty neat. Only way down is a grate stairway. Probably 120 stairs and we didn’t make it because my girlfriend was too nervous.

Tough climb but beautiful views of the peaks and valleys. We did this on Nov 17, trail was easy to follow - microspikes and poles a must.

Nice easy trail! Was great but you only need to do it once in my opinion

Can get icy spikes are recommended for the winter if you head past lower falls. I usually stop here and then head to the upper falls. Lots to see at Johnston Canyon

Nice views around the middle and a little waterfall at the end. Not a long trail.

this was my first hike postpartum and it was perfect for starting out again. Lots to look at and cute little fall!

Did this little loop two times now and found it enjoyable both times would go back again.

Gorgeous view!! Nice easy trail :)

Always one of my favourites to do especially in the winter!! Will have to go up to ink pots in the summer

This was an awesome little trail! Just did it last week with our baby and the frozen falls at the end were pretty :)

This is a great trail if you’re in for a day trek. I’ve completed the full loop twice now and the course is lovely to experience the different views and hills. At one point we did have to take our shoes off and wade through the water as one part of the trail was flooded. Besides that it’s a great hike. Make sure to pack food and lots of water!!

Did this hike at the spur of the moment on a weekend getaway in Oct! Beautiful short hike. Micro spikes were required. Had the place mostly to ourselves except for a new friend we met!

Extra hard if you walk from the upper lakes parking lot and then climb Indefatigable, named after a ship that sunk in the juit war. Little history of the dirty six or twenty six.

A beautiful place in the heart of lower mainland. The trail goes through lush green forest and several beautiful streams, that ends at a small and quite lake. We hiked on November 16, a sunny Friday, surprisingly it wasn’t busy at all; met only one other couple in the whole trip, carrying bear bells was a good idea. The distance from the Trail head to the lake View Point, shown on my app was 6.5 km, so it is more than 13 km two way. Same is Elevation Gain: As trail goes up and down the hill several times to cross the streams, you should add at least 100 m extra to what it shows the elevation gain on the map. The slops are not so steep, that makes the climbing easy snd pleasant. I will suggest using waterproof hiking shoes and poles, as you will face few puddles and wet slippery places on the trail.
To find the Trail on google, search Sumas Mountain Trail Head. Coming from Vancouver at Highway 1, exit at exit 95 and turn left on Whatcom Rd, and quickly after crossing highway bridge turn right on N Parallel Rd. after two and a half km turn left to Sumas Mountain Rd. And stay on Upper Sumas Mountain Rd. The winding road will run about 9.5 km and then turns into a gravel road. That is where the trail head is. After coming down about 100 m on gravel road you will see a wooden pole on the right side of the road with very small (6 inch) green signs, showing bear, dog on leash etc. The gravel road is wide enough at that point to find a road side parking..

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!

Loved this trail! Great view and away from the large crowds.

Great view on top, easy to walk, not a lot of snow! I would recommand :)

Little slippery at the beginning of winter. well trafficked. Free gondola down in winter

Stunning hike, easy terrain. Beautiful after first snowfalls

Did the low Jewell Pass track to Barrier and then back up the jeep track over Yates. Great little hike - good distance. Moderate rather than hard. Keen to MTB it in the summer

The water/ice sculpture created by the freezing waterfall makes this moderately easy hike a 5/5. Wearing micro spikes proved helpful as the start of the hike as well as the short path down to the waterfall were steep.

Did this hike on November 12th

Beautiful trails. 3 different trails to choose from. A 7km and two 4km options.

Excellent day with dry conditions! We clocked 11 km and 912 metre gain to helipad! 4 hours 10 minutes with lots of breaks! Amazing hike and views! Can’t wait to come back and go up ridge !

Nice and simple hike. My boyfriend, dog and I hiked out to the 3rd waterfall which is about 8km from the trailhead. Great views the whole way and easy trail to follow along the river. Recommend this hike to anyone!

View is spectacular. Snow and ice on the trail.

nice hike, although not well marked. rewarding at the end seeing all the painted wrecked old trains.

Good outing ....esp fun in the winter time.
