Super steep hike! I recommend poles for the way down to save your knees (and keep you from tumbling down the mountain!).
Around a third to half of the way in there is a beautiful view point that's perfect for a lunch break.
The trail sikes you out a few times as there are a lot of great viewpoints where you think you have reached the end but you need to keep going up the ridge to summit Harvey! Highly recommend checking your gps to make sure you get all the way up. Quite a bit of scrambling/climbing needed.
Also, bring layers as the weather changes rapidly and can get quite cold.
Trail had awesome views of Howe Sound and the Lions if it's not too cloudy.

Finally I got my chance to do this hike and got it off my bucket list. As mentioned in the other posts, the second and third quarters are steeper. Hardly any flat spots in general. The drizzle and moisture in the air added to the challenge. Stay hydrated and be prepared to sweat.

Very easy. It does have rough terrain and it can be muddy in the fall/winter/spring. Gorgeous views!

It is short and breathtaking hiking,quick and useful.ido three times week and really like it.

I’d say this trail is more moderate than easy. It would be easy for the fit seasoned hiker, so overall a more moderate-easy for the average joe. There are a large amount of stairs initially, then more nearer the middle and a ton near the end of the hike downwards which you then have to come up on your way back. The only downside is how heavily trafficked the trail is.

More a really engaging and fun workout than a chance to view the scenery. I did it the first time and liked it so much I went up two days later again. As everyone else, I recommend making sure you can be there at the least busy times, because the constant navigation of passing is the only serious downside that makes me want to abandon it for the nearby bcmc trail. Also you can hike down the bcmc when you’re done rather than pay for the gondola and that’s a beautiful hike too!

The trail was steep, wet, and slippery all the way thru .. So use precaution!

Came up from Texas, hiked this in late September, very wet. We did the trail straight to peak 2. Excellent hike, lots of stair climbing, both wood and placed rock. Up to the last bit towards peak 2 it's simple, but a heavy leg workout. The top bit of the trail just before peak 2 starts having some tighter squeezes and chains to help you up steep inclines, and then there's a switchback. We had to stop there because of the wet and some of our party didn't have shoes that could handle it. Disappointing, but we'll be back in a couple months to beat it!

The look out along the way is a really nice way to have a break, grab a drink and stretch a bit. It’s a little bit like Grouse Grind but closer to nature rather than man made. The view when you get up top is very nice.

my first time i scared for my life when i climb that last part but i had so much fun

Beautiful lake but to popular

Took me and a little dog 2 hrs to the top and then 1.5 hrs back to the bottom. Only saw one stream on the way up so bring your own water for the dog. Lots of roots for the second half of the hike so bring good footwear. Not too much room at the top to enjoy the view as compared to say, Quarry Rock. No bugs right now but was windy and chilly.

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.

Awesome trail. Even on a cloudy day the trail was great. Took me two hours to go up, without any stop and three hours to go down, taking my time picking up mushrooms and berries. A bit hard to find the Howe Sound Crest trail at first but once you've find it, it's very easy to find your way to the top. (Tip: Follow Howe sound EAST trail). I highly recommend this one !

It’s a work out for this hike as it’s a 2000 ft continuous rise, leading to spectacular views of Squamish town and Howe Sound, take snacks or lunch so you can relax and enjoy the views.

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 :(

Great trail best hike for training ! Good physical and mental workout ! Work on your cardio before you go for a first time . The trail will
Humble you !

Great hike with a satisfying goal. if you're looking for a more challenging route, take a right up the hill when you reach the fork in the road. This will let you see some beautiful classic North Van scenery. It certainly is more of a challenge. You'll reach the waterfall in another hour once the paths rejoin. Once there, be aware of the crows! On the way back, take the other path for an easier route.

Easy and dog friendly

Rad, challenging hike. I'm athletic enough but work a desk job and don't get out as often as I like, so the first 1/4 of this one was a bit of a winder - once you settle in to a good pace, though, just take in the beautiful surroundings and drink enough water, the views along the way and at the top are worth it!

pretty rough but so worth it. Best climb yet.

This was my first “real” hike.. newbie here.. it was hard but so worth it! We got lucky with the fog lifting just as we reached Eagles Bluff. It gets busy quickly so I suggest going before 9 am.

The stairs at the start are quite challenging, but the view is well worth it

Good workout. Go early to beat the crowds

wait for a sunny day, the vistas are amazing

Beautiful views!!! In light of the sight restrictions due to all the fire smoke this summer, we had spectacular views today. The 360 view from the top of the first peak were great. We were a
Little surprised to see snow clinging to the tops of some of the more distant mountains but it sure enhanced the scene.

Other than being very busy this is a great trail!

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.

Great steep rooty climb. I measured 5.6km to the top from the west canyon trailhead parking lot. It took us 2 hours to reach the summit. Awesome views from up there.

beautiful but definitely moderate
