Hikes done! Map

Super quick for an incredible view :)!

Today December 7, we started from parking lot at 9 am. We reached Lindeman in 45 minuted. The trail was moderately sloped and well maintained. But from Lindeman to Greendrop Trail was pretty challenging, not because it was steep, but because almost two third of the trail you have to walk is on uneven rocks. You have balance on rocks and find your way between red dots and you cant go fast. But it was worth going there. We reached Greendrop at 12:40, ate lunch and took 20 minuets break. It was so cold that my water bottle got frozen in few minutes. We returned to our car at 4:10 pm and it was already getting dark. It was Friday, we didn’t see any other hiker between Lindeman and Greendrop. Total two way distance is 12 km.

The hike was beautiful, it is moderately trafficked because it is in the fall. The few people we met on the trail were very friendly. It took 4 hours to do the loop, water and a light snack are suggested.

Hiked yesterday. There is snow along the entire trail. The trail was packed down, so there was no need for snowshoes. It was quite icy and slippery. Wearing spikes would have made the hike much easier and safer. The view from the top was stunning.

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

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

Amazing views!

decently maintained kid friendly really easy hike

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

hiked 18th Novenmber, the sun has melted the ice so no need for crampons, just a little muddy in some spots. spectacular views all round. No water available on the trail and quite strenuous so bring lots!

one of my favorites

Just did it yesterday, some parts a bit slippery, very good view!

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

beautiful hike, not a busy trail! Trail markers were a little difficult to find every now and then though.

The area between the first set of stairs and the summit is in poor condition creating difficulties on the descent. Avoid in icy conditions unless you have good micro spikes.

Not a particularly beautiful or interesting trail, maybe we just didn’t get to the right viewpoints? Good length and difficulty, good as a moderate 3-hour workout. Used our gps a lot.

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.

Great hike. 2 hours 40 minutes round trip. Fairly easy except near the top when there’s snow on the ground. Gets a little slippery and would recommend something to put on your boots for grip.

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.

Nice easy trail. Different altitudes during the road. Beautiful scenery, nice people.

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.

Cute hike, not hard, slippery In the fall with the leaves and rain. Next time I do this hike I’ll bring a tea pot or cup to add to the ambiance.

Great hike. Viewpoint surrounded in cloud, couldn’t see anything. Snowing at the summit. Totally worth it. Ran into a crew working on the trail - THANKS!

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.

Really nice. Found it to be well
Kept. Hard to find the start. View was cloudy but I assume normally is amazing.

If you can, do this hike on a week day. Very busy on weekends. Nice moderate hike with spectacular views at the top.
Easy access from Cypress parking lot.

Nice easy hike. No great views, but a nice little loop around some 500+ year old Douglas Fir trees.

It's a beautiful hike but get started early! It starts to get crowded just before noon.

Top section is steep and very slippery. If you are afraid of height, you might find this section very challenging at times - more so on your way back. Hiking poles help. I suggest an early start, it gets really busy in the afternoons.

Hiked it twice. First time was on a rainy morning. Second time was on a hot sunny day. The second time around, with the heat and exposure, the hike felt so much harder. If hiking it in the summer, make sure to have plenty of water.
