Nice Hike, but not breathtaking, may be because of the smoke blocking the view these days...
Lots of bugs.
The beginning is in the shade which is nice, with a beautiful waterfall at the start, it is worth the little detour.
The campsite is located at the following lake as the rainbow lake is Whistler's reservoir.
The hike is steep indeed but not super hard. I had lots of weight on my back and it was manageable.
An advice, wait for the smoke to go away, otherwise it's not worth the effort.

This is definitely a grind, it’s not too long of a hike, but it can be tough if you’re not use to going straight up, but it’s worth to try at least once. Pretty view of farm lands. The parking is next to the Abby gun range off exit #3.

One of the best national parks. Great hike, mostly uphill but rewarding views (2) at the end. Would recommend to do kayaking on the river.

A section of the trial was closed (seemed permanent) so can’t really complete the “loop” Aside from that, a nice trail to walk and bike..

Amazing hike. Wonderful View. Gave us a good workout.

Excellent hike! One of my favourites to date.

1st time doing the trail, good workout and not as hard as The Grouse Grind.

Very easy trail with views of the river on one side and farms on the other side. The only drawback, for me, is the inconsiderate pets owners who don't pick after their pets.

always fun but dusty

Went around 2pm last Tuesday. Couple cars parked but not busy in the trail. Brought my 11yo bro and dog. Bring extra water! Was a really warm day that day and most people stopped and turned after the lookout point. Lots of black flies! Really steep at the top with loose rocks. Enjoyed the hike though! You can go past Elk to Thurston, but it was too hot of a day and we ran out of water so we didn’t.

The views are incredible, took us an hour to get to the 3rd peak.

It’s a really good hike...short but a good workout!!!!

Fantastic hike with amazing views, but be prepared for some seriously steep hiking. The first third of the hike up to First Peak is mostly wooden stairs, and they were the hardest part of the hike for me. Go as early as you can to avoid the crowds.

Great trail, love the incline. Soft dirt and dryness in the summer make for a dirty climb- wear pants- not shorts. Did the hike in just over an hour with a 50lb kid on the back and a 6 year old hiking (and a golden retriever). Good city view when the sky is clear.

Excellent hike! The trail is well- maintained with numerous little foot bridges and a suspension bridge with good payoff at Rainbow Lake. The hike there was almost as scenic as the lake especially after you hit the 2.3 km gate. Before the gate the scenery is so-so but afterwards it’s impressive. Lightly traveled trail but heed others advice to bring plenty of insect repellent - mosquitoes are plentiful. Also be on lookout for bears; we saw plenty of evidence of bear activity but no problems. Highly recommend this hike.

Fantastic day hike. Views, challenging rugged trail, plenty of space to avoid the crowds

Great for beginners

A long, all day hike. We parked up at the trail head on the Sinclair side and walked along the highway to find the trailhead so we would end by hiking directly to the car instead of along the highway at the end. We saw many bear signs such as scat on the trail but no bears. Definitely make sure to bring lots of water as we were a bit scarce by the end. The signage is a bit sketchy and we were worried for a while whether or not we were headed the right way but found our way back and recorded it to be just over 19km in total. There is however essentially one path to follow.

Great workout

Great hike to get some elevation training. Super dusty which made it a little unstable and difficult to run but otherwise quite enjoyable.

This is an amazing trail for a great workout.. especially running down the trail. Best to go early in the morning before the traffic gets too busy. My dog loves it too!

Great little trail! Got there early to avoid as many people and the heat. Great steady incline and then fairly steep to the top. Didn’t make it to Thurston but definitely will next time.

Went 0700 and had a workout for less than 1.5 hours. Short roller coster hills it is. It gives the hiker many options of trails to hike, so boredom doesn't sink in from taking a repeat hike.
