great Trail for a half day hike with some good conditioning and what A View From The Top. Outstanding restaurant and bar to relax in when you're done. Perfect playground in Vancouver's backyard

Some of the parts of the trail were closed so it was up and down the same path to the mini lakes at top.

Awesome trail with incredible views. Only thing I found was there was minimal signage along the trail with made it difficult to stay on track in the winter. On the other side though the trail head and the road to the parking lot were very well signed. Summer time I’m sure the trail would be more visible!

I’ve done it a good number of times. The best workout ever if you’re up to the challenge.

Nice short climb to the top. The landscape is unique and picture perfect.

Amazing views at the top. Worth the pain getting up there. Your legs will burn.

Wow! Amazing reward at the top!

Great workout! The first quarter is the hardest to me.

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

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!

Beautiful winter hike. Easy trail was very easy. Probably good with a stroller.
More difficult was full of tree roots and rocks under the little snow. Closer to the top of more difficult trail you need crampons. It was pure ice due to the overflow.
From the lakes, the hike up the stairs has a nice lookout. At the very top you can cross the road for a nice mountain and lake view.
Outhouse on site.

Went on Nov 12th. Sunny. Temp -5. Trail spilt into more difficult and east. More difficult has lots of frozen icy surface which are extramely spiliry. lots of beautiful forest view and sunny mountain view. Trail beyond water fall is covered in frozen ice. Spikes are recommended for that part of the trail.
Grassi lakes at the end of the trail is very beautiful and not frozen so you still see the beautiful color of the water.
I would go back in summer again.

Amazing views from the top! Be prepared for switchbacks though, as this trail is full of them!! I’ve done this hike a few times now and have enjoyed the “reward” at the top every time!

I did this in the summer however! Just late to rate it.

Enjoyable easy hike :)
Went 3 weeks a go a bit slippery in some spots but other then that a good fun hike.

Done this twice now while visiting Vancouver, love it!!! Second time, half way up I was wondering why I was doing it again, but worth it once you get to the top.

Not recommended for the harder side in the winter unless you have good shoe spikes. Great views and a pleasant trail when recovering from a hard trail. Lots of traffic even in winter and much better than Quarry Lake all around.

November 11, 2018. Beautiful canyon/river trail. Man-made trail structures throughout. If you have hiked before, this trail will not be a challenge except for the sometimes icy conditions. Good traction hiking boots are a must or a traction device (spikes/cleats) if you are not used to packed snow/icy conditions. This trail is pretty busy so do not expect to be alone with nature. Crowds aside, the canyon and falls are worth it. Enjoy!

Nov 10 beautiful frozen falls. I recommend crampons. Even good hiking boots still slip in some areas.
Washrooms are on site..

Amazing. We saw it in the snow. It was a winter wonderland in September.

Pretty hard and totally uphill all the way. The views up are beautiful, worth your efforts. Took us 75 mins. Gondola was closed for seasonal maintenance so had to go down by the BCMC trail which was very tiring and painful as the trail was torn up due to heavy rain.

We did this hike on November 3rd. It was beautiful. Hardly any snow.

Nice views, but the high amount of tourists ruin this “hike.” I’d go elsewhere if your looking for something peaceful and remote.

Hike was awesome! Easy trail for sure! Highly recommend it, lots to see for sure!

Over rated in my opinion. It's a good hike, but it's very busy most of the time and I hike for quiet, lot to be in rush hour. 50% people who are trying to beat their times are more than happy to give those slower a little nudge to get you out of their way.

Definitely worth the trip!

Easy. Beautiful. Worth the view

A solid hour of stair climbing and a breathtaking view at the top! Another reason I want to move to Vancouver so this can be a part of my daily morning routine.
