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.

Perfect mix of challenge for all ages. Nice mix of terrain. Great view.

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.

Did this hike with my dad today and ventured on past Chadsey to the East lookout. Such an amazingly dense forest to wander through! The light shining through the forest and fog looked magical. I will share some pictures from today too.

Do this hike ATLEAST once!

Very good length and mostly calm. Right now there’s a lot of mud and puddles though, so your shoe definitely get dirty. For anybody!

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.

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.

Best place for great time with newborn. Easy and calm.

5 stars because the peak chalet at the top was a great way to end a very challenging hike.

At 36 and decent shape it took me 1 hour 10 minutes. This hike is basically a stair climb for the entire time with no let up. If you’re looking for a flat smooth hike look elsewhere.

Started at about 11am on Sunday and the crowds weren’t too bad. Bring a credit card for lunch and drinks at the top.

Very fun trail. It has a few challenging activities. Prepare for high stairs and ladders.

Strangely addictive and I think like anything, it gets easier the more you practice. Pace yourself, take a litre bottle of water per person and wear stretchy clothing as you’ll be stepping up for basically the entire way and scrambling over rocks. Pack an extra layer for the top as it tends to be a bit chillier.

It was hella hard but if you take frequent breaks and bring good, energy giving snacks and at least two bottles of water per person, you can do it! I felt like the first quarter was harvest when it came to terrain, so when they say it’s harder for the first quarter, it depends on your perspective. Great view at the top and so very worth it!

Good short hike for a view. However not the easiest for everyone since it’s lots of stepping over tree roots and rocks

Easy and peaceful

it was a nice sunny day☀. We did the 3 peaks all in 1 day. it was scrambling and steep. The chain was very helpful to climb up. I recommended this hike.

You need proper shoes and no need poles.

1 peak: scramble and ladder.

2 peak: Very challenging. Lots of chains to climb up. There is a shortcut to go to peak 3. It is a very short distance and simple view.

3 peak: from the top...You don't need to go back to the 2 peaks. You can climb down and turn right going to the parking lot. there is no chain or ladder to climb down but steep and lots of rocks.



The rocks are big and steep. You need to pay attention to yellow marks from 3 peaks going down to the parking lot.

This trail came as advertised. Lots of roots, rocks and mud. Aptly named for the number of dogs and with lots of kids. Views were spectacular! Well worth the effort.

Rooty undulating trail no big climbs was muddy. There where lots of people. Took 2:13 with a slow dog out and back. GPS said it was 5.14 km out and back.

Tough trail but great views. I stopped near the peak because I felt uncomfortable doing the rock scramble alone. I passed several people on the trail, especially near sunset. Recommend!

Love this hike! Done it with my kids and dog a few times. Challenging but so worth it!

Super hike to the 3 chiefs, 3 separate summits, with super flat rocks on each for a snack and take in the views. Good stepping practice to start the hike. The alternate route back quite steep in places, take slow.

Great workout. Gets real steep after chadsey lake..there are 2 viewpoints- the original is lookout is ok but go down to the left about 500 feet and the view is breathtaking.

Perfect fall day Vancouver getaway. Well maintained. Steep.

Awesome.

Great trial! Very challenging. Managed to get up it in 39 min. But it was a very hard push.

Awesome hike!!! Super steep, lots of stairs and have to hold on to chains towards the top. Distance isn’t long but it’s slow going. Don’t bring your dog.

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!
