nothing great only thing to see in the bungee jumpers at the bridge, the waterfalls are amazing though.

this one was a challenge for me. going up was fun but coming down was really hard. The middle section was the hardest for me but it was worth it. I did it in August in the hottest day. was a great accomplishment for me.

is a great workout and is worth the trip

Nice park, dog-friendly. Hard not to have a great time when it's 10 degrees and sunny in the middle of January.

I did this over the summer and oh boy. If you are doing this hike, know what you're getting in to. If you hike like a normal person, it's about 2 hours to alter flats, where I overnighted. I was then up bright and early (about 5:30) for and 11 hour there and back again. Like every other comment says YOU NEED WATER. There is basically none from the flats to the emergency shelter. speaking of the shelter, once you're there, you have another 45mins to an hour to the peak. A bit of a grind but definitely worth it. It was the most fun part of and coming down we slid down the snowpack. 10/10 would reccomend. That was the fastest I went that day. All in all, 2 hours to the flats, 6 hrs up, 5 hrs down and another 2 out. Take your time and have fun cause the view is stunning! oh Yeah, and that scary thing to the left is edge peak. don't worry about it.

4X4 with a decent clearance to the trailhead. From thereon, a good hike to the peak and if the weather is clear and sunny, you'll be rewarded with a good view otherwise, a good hike!

It was a good day for the hike. The hike starts off easy before heading over a few ice covered rocks and an ice covered little bridge. Both were very slippery but not that big of a deal. With stops and all we took our time and reached the top in about 1.5 hours. The climb up was steep in some sections but I never felt like I was in risk of losing my footing. The trail is quite slender but again, traction is good. Once you get to the viewpoint you can get some amazing photos and the caves are a short walk from there. The caves are more like large stacked rocks and don't go very far. There were no bears in them when we went and we explored around to find some of the bigger ones. We squeezed in and out of tiny holes in the earth to explore as much as we could. All in all, we probably went inside about 5-7 caves while we were there. Trip down was a quick 40 minutes walk. A good starter hike for sure.

This was an awesome short trail run. The uphill climb was pretty vertical, but the downhill was a decent grade and fairly soft underfoot. Overall the trail was easy to follow. Anytime I needed a hint on direction there was always an orange trail marker in sight. The only confusing spots were when the trail was changed and the detours didn’t seem complete (orange tags on the old trail, and lack of some logs blocking the old path), but a little map checking and it was easy to figure out.

Great trail. Last time we did it on November 17. Great views, lots of snow, but still doable.

I'd say it's our toughest one-day hike so far. 30km, 1600m elevation. ~40% covered with snow. Took us around 12hr with all the stops. I guess we could've go faster, but there were so many spots, where we wanted to stop and just enjoy the views.

Many people couldn't make it to the top, cause of snow.

Gators, crampones and warm waterproof boots are required.

nice view but steep

Went up the majority of this trail yesterday. Had to turn around just before the scramble section because of snow and ice.
Beautiful trail that really works the legs out on the way up and down.
5 hours return trip with a short break at the top for a bite to eat

The BC Parks map is super outdated, the connecting trail involves some route finding and dog walkers on the lower trail do not leash their dogs as required by BC Parks and it’s annoying. Took my 8YO down the scramble bits and he did our route finding and loved it.

This trail is absolutely stunning. A must do if you can pop over to Yoho.

love this hike

Did it last weekend with about 35% of the trail covered in snow. Nothing much to bother with until you get to about 1-2km before the peak where the steep incline beings. It was tough breaking through 2-3 feet of snow and required scrambling on all fours at some points just before the peak. But other than that, it was fine and the effort was worth the incredible views at the top. Took us about 7.5 hours round trip plus an hour at the top. Note that we are regular hikers. Carry layers, gloves, gators, waterproof shoes if you plan on spending an hour on the peak, if you don’t want your fingers and toes going numb with cold, and are hiking during the winter season.

Wow... probably one of the most beautiful hike that I have ever done in my life... without my friend’s truck I would never be able to get there. Want to buy a 4x4 just so I can come back to here one day.

I went yesterday (18/Nov/11). I ran into snow about 3k before the main parking area so had to park and begin our hike there. This was my second time hiking Cheam and first time in the snow. I didn't expect as much snow as we encountered. Snow was very soft and the trails of course were self made. I summited without poles, crampons or snow shoes - so it's possible, but not recommended!

November 9th, 2018.
There was light snow starting at 7km into this hike, I made it to 9km and turned back as visibility had gotten to the point where I no longer felt safe to continue.
To the 9km mark and back to the Parking lot took me 7.5 hours

The snow will slow you down, and winter park hours may make this hike not possible unless staying the night.

Did this hike today November 10th. Insane view once you reach the top! Definitely a good workout as it’s pretty steep in some parts. Not a single person on the trail. Very serene! Highly recommend!

Definitely a tough trail. A steep climb most of the way with a bit of scrambling at the top. It took us a little over 2 hours each way. Beautiful views on a clear day.

What an awesome trail! It definitely should be rated as very difficult. We did the trail 22/October the weather was awesome and the view unforgettable! It is definitely worth it!
We started around 11:30am and arrived at 4pm on the peak. It was a bit to late so we had to go the last 6km back in the dark. But it was perfect!

We did this in just under two hours, not a fast pace either. The trail down from east canyon to lower falls is a scramble. Not recommended for dogs or very young kids

missed a turn to ridge trail and ended up doing the goat mountain instead. but I loved it. you can take for CAD 15 the gondola down. A must do option. Can someone edit hike description to mention this there

We made it up in our Ford Escape but I wouldn’t recommend going up without a decent truck. The hike on the other hand I would definitely recommend, stunning views and pretty easy going the whole way.

We Hike the Ridge in July and was a bit cloudy but worth every km of it. A very beautiful place. A must do.

My girlfriend and I went up today with our 2 dogs and spent lunch at the view point with the handmade benches. We traveled left at the fork after that to check out the caves that were less than 10 minutes away. On map it shows you can go further but don't know if that means past the caves we saw or right at the fork before this point. Trail is easily marked and I'd rate it at moderate. Took us an hour up, stopped twice for water. 40 minutes back down. Would do this again for a quick, scenic hike for exercise or lunch.

Spectacular views on a clear day. Good family hike that will tire the kids.

Tough trail, not well marked and poorly maintained. Did this trail twice, once in winter and again on September 4, 2018. View was ok. Would not do it again. Most of the trail was a scramble, or it appeared as such. Treacherous in some sections so be careful. You will at one point on the trail need to pull yourself up with ropes. Passes close to the edge so caution is advised alone this trail. Took 8 hours to complete with 45 minutes for lunch at the top. I had to use some ropes of my own for the decent as it was quite STEEP. Would not recommend for kids and pets. Only view is at the top which is lovely but not worth the effort. This is not just a hike and definitely not “a walk in the park”.
