Loved it. Challenging if you fear heights but fantastic views.

Astonishing view, it is worth the sweat

Great trail, good cardio if you have average walking speed. also on the way dow have some acceleration definitely not boring, will do it again. Cons: busy trail with a lot dogs and some times people don’t clean up the poop.

amazing Hike!!! one of the best I have ever made in Canada! we had really luck with the weather and the view was so amazing and also the hike up to the summit was challenging and so enjoyable if you are fit :D
even some free climbing was possible, but you have to be sure, what you are doing :D

Off the 165 exit, and left to the T off “no exit”, near Hope. Flood Fall made a good stop to stretch the leg and walk the dogs.

One of the best due to ease and convenience of location, grade, and rewarding view.

Convenient easy location but nothing special

Stunning view of the valley! Love the hike up; however, your knees pay on the way down.

Nice quick hike that is convenient to get to.

The view is always worth the hike

Beautiful hike with lots of vegetation. Did this today, we did the Othello tunnels first then walked along the rail bed until we found this trailhead, quite steep sections so I definitely agree with other reviews about it should be rated as moderate, coming down the end of the trail back to the parking lot, I was glad we did it “backwards” as the end part seemed a lot steeper than coming up the back end of it. Depends if you want to start or end your trip with the tunnels/tourists.

how they do that

loved it. I am NOT a hiker by any stretch. and I am not in good shape. this trail is classified as easy but it kicked my ass. so if I can do it anyone can.

you would need a good ground clearance and 4wd

Be careful with the GPS! The link took me to a very dangerous steep and rocky forest service road the bisects the actual trail! Never made the hike as I was almost didnt make it up the road in my non-4x4 4 cyclinder engine :(

Too foggy to see anything, can't wait to try again

The trail shown on this app does appear on open topo maps but it's over grown. As advised in the previous post we started the trail at the west side of the fire and rescue centre. It starts as a mountain bike trail with jumps and bridges. Trails split in several directions. We took the trail that traverses west to meet the trail shown in this app which is well maintained. Once we arrived at the main trail, it goes straight up steep terrain and hasn't seen traffic in years. We decided to turn around here.

Had a great hike up to the second lake.
She's a steep knee grinder both ways so beware.
I brought my dog and we got through it in 6.5 hours with a bit of a lunch hangout at the wrecked platform.
Met two nice guys searching for old mine shafts and found an old Spear head while hiking this trail.
Totally recommend!

This is one of my favorite shorter hikes. The views are pretty standard for most of the climb, but the panoramic views at the top are gorgeous.

beautiful but definitely moderate

Beautiful lake. Only issue is the way wash room was built.

Sep 2. Left parking lot at 8:45, summited at 12:45. Left peak at 1:15, back at car at 4:00 p.m.

Having done Frosty Mountain the day before, this one really challenged me. The climb up in the forest is relentless with nothing to see. Finally we reached the lower lake. The upper lake is even more beautiful and the views get even better as you get higher up. Views from the peak are amazing! Well worth the climb. My 13 pound dog and my friends’ 2 big dogs made it up and down no problem. My knees hurt a lot during the last hour but I mostly ran through it as we wanted to get down in a decent time.

It’s a great track but would be easier to do the loop with the tunnels at the end instead of the beginning. I would say the track is moderate rather than easy as there are some steep sections.

Some easy off-roading (during summer time I guess). Need a 4x4 truck with high clearance. Nice views everywhere when no wildfires. Will definitely return.

The scramble was too much for me and my friend, it seemed more like rock climbing at points. We followed the footsteps at the beginning of the hike (there was some snow and was our first time) which led us way off trail. Ended up taking 2hrs45mins to get past the needle peak/flatiron lake junction. 1hr10mins down. Very easy to find your direction, highway was nearly dead North and could see it from most viewpoints. 10/10 will hike again later this year!

Great hike, just as hard coming down as going up. Rocky and slippery. Awesome views.

Awesome hike. Took us 2.5 hrs to top of peak. Recommend bringing a wind breaker and gloves for the scramble at the end! Amazing views. Great hike for whole family, less adventerous people can split off and go to the lake!

Hiked up to the ridge on Saturday but got rained out. Came back on Monday and got to the peak. Weather was awesome with no trace of smoke in the sky after the rain on the weekend. Loved the scramble sections, wish they were longer! This trail should be rated as hard because of the scrambles and steep first section. If the Flatiron trail is rated hard in AllTrails, this one is definitely hard. (I backpacked Flatiron last year). Would go do it again! (I don't like that the AllTrails map shows a circular route, thats now how most people hike it and the east ridge looks very challenging.)
