Great hike... but the coastal trail section should be ranked as Difficult!! Saw some seals fishing in the algae, beautiful scenery - especially on costal section. Also a great leash free hike for well behaved dogs! Good shoes required for some sections.

A good hike, gorgeous view of the valley and Vancouver island. My dog and I enjoyed it, we went earlier in the year and got to hike through the snow. My dog absolutely loved it.

Does anyone know if you
Can access trailhead right now?

Road to trailhead is still closed!

FYI. We tried but logging roads are closed due to extreme fire hazard so we couldn't get up to trail head.

Make sure to check out swimming hole above upper falls, before brown wooden middle bridge down dirt path. Awesome!

This was a tough hike but the reward is so worth it! The view at the top it unreal! Took the judges route up

Nice view and walk worth going for yourself

Low effort with high reward view at the end of the walk. Has several picnic tables for a quick lunch.

I walk this trail almost every single day. Live right down the road from it. Lovely having such a beautiful part of nature so close to home ♥️

nice walk, but what's with the barbed wire along the trail?

Beautiful walk through nature, very easy!

Nice walk the colour of the water was beautiful and peaceful.

Amazing trail and very well blazed. Nice to be in a blazed trail for a change. We went off on Pink and met up with Yellow and made this trek a loop. Yellow blazing can be had to see at times.

Beautiful walk beside waterfalls in a lichen laden forest.

I really enjoyed the loop around Matheson Lake and the walk along Matheson Creek to the lake, however Roche Cove itself was nice but not amazing.

Easy loop with beautiful views.

Great trail! Very beautiful and interesting.

Better than I expected. The hike actually can be a loop. There are several bridges that traverse the river so it’s not really an in and out walk. Very easy. Definitely accessible walk for all ages and abilities.

Took the judges route up. Snowed the night before and near the top some of the steep rocky scrambles had potential to be very dangerous with the ice and snow, but with careful judgement and patience we made it up to the summit all in one piece. The hike is very steep and not for the faint-hearted. This was my first time hiking this mountain and the views on the way and at the summit were unreal.

The gate to the logging road is closed due to extreme fire risk. Only way u r getting in there is by bike.

Easy trail, really good for families. The waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous and there are some great little spots to have a dip in the water. Absolutely loved it and would definitely go again!

The color of the water is so beautiful! It is a great walk but king of short.

Tried to go today, but the gates are closed due to high fire hazards. Apparently the mountain has been shut down for 2 weeks now. They will probably reopen once the heat settles down :)

Went up for landscape photography and was not disappointed by the views. The hike was steep in a few areas. It was probably easier because I stopped to set up my gear at every viewpoint I could find. I continued past the trail to reach the peak. The trail I took was clearly labelled, warning that it was not maintained, and to proceed with caution. It was no worse off than the rest of the trail when I went, so that is a bonus. Will definitely be going back.

Nice views at the top. Elevation is quick but not too tough. Once you get up and down the Lower Trail loop is a nice cool down before heading back to the parking lot.
