Nice hike.. lots of roots so it’s fun going up and down those. Some challenging areas but nothing too bad. Really enjoyed this trail..Greta cover for rainy hikes!

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

Gorgeous trail and lakes, but SO CROWDED. Even on a Tuesday in mid September.

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!

Warning: the west side is currently closed to repair a bridge, so you’re detoured to the lake view trail. Which is gorgeous (including an epic waterfall view), but definitely heed the warnings of how steep it is.

This was our first hike in the area. it is a great introduction to the beauty of this region. The trail is easy and well kept. Ocean views are abound. Very relaxing activity.

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.

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.

Amazing trail!

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 :(

The most beautiful hike!

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 !

Cute trail, great for families. The map here is somewhat misleading as it does not start at the “official” trailhead. And the trail is not 2.8 miles, more like maybe a mile and a half round trip. I think there is a newer entry in the app for this trail called the Whistler Trainwreck Trail via Sea to Sky — that one has the correct trailhead marked which is actually easy to find. There’s even a small parking area for the trail (on Jane Lakes Road.) Basically, from the 99, go south on Cheakamus Lake Road (by the Whistler Interpretive Forest), keep right to Legacy Road (for a short distance) then to Jane Lakes Road. You will see a small parking area shortly, and the trailhead will be near a stop sign.

Easy and dog friendly

pretty rough but so worth it. Best climb yet.

Great little hike! The train wreck is really neat. Instead of following the man made path, you can cut down to the river and follow a dirt trail that has a some pretty sweet views of the river/cliffs. Parking is really easy and straightforward if you follow this site: https://www.whistler.com/pdf/maps/whistler-hiking-trail-head-map.pdf. Trail head is well labeled.

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.

I went with a 5 year old and a 2 year old ....cant take a stroller so we didnt reach the falls but really nice walk

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

Sad to see this trail so crowded, can do with high heels on as the trail is much easier than years ago. Didn’t see any rangers , outhouses stink and even the area around middle lake near outhouses smells like urine. Overcrowded parking lots and the experience now “speaking for myself” is a major turnoff in the summer months.
Suggest going in the off season mid-week. Views are spectacular just minus the huge amount of people and slinky outhouses.

We arrived at 9.10 on Thursday morning and the car park was barely 1/3 full. The hike to Upper Joffre was moderately difficult for this 54 year old but certainly doable. It took my husband and I around 75 minutes to make it to Upper Joffre after stopping for many photographs of the spectacular lakes and surrounds along the way.

There are people coming and going from the car park so hang around and wait for someone to leave, it will probably only be a 5 minute or so wait.

A must do hike if you’re in the area - each lake is a beautiful turquoise blue colour.

wait for a sunny day, the vistas are amazing

Other than being very busy this is a great trail!

We did this hike with a good friend and our four children on labour day. One of the most beautiful examples of God’s creation that I’ve seen for some time. Absolutely stunning scenery. Stay clear of the top of the falls as it is the place of some tragic accidents, but overall a wonderful hike.
