I would agree that this trail is not all that "easy". You will need good shoes to tread over some rocks and inclines/declines near the end of the trail. Any age group can do it though, from kids to seniors. Took me 1 hour and 45 minutes both ways on a relaxed pace. Jug island beach is quite tiny but the view is worth the exercise.

Nice trail. Would not rate as easy at all. Maybe easy to the 2.5km mark. then certainly not after that.

Aug. 2018-My husband and I decided at the last minute to go on our very first backpacking trip for our anniversary. Luckily, we managed to snag the last reservations at Whitehorn (night 1) and Robons Pass (night 2) two weeks prior to the hike.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this trail. The scenery is stunning and absolutely breathtaking! This trail is well maintained, everyone is so friendly, and the campsites are clean.

In total, we spent 3 days on the trail and we wish we had stayed longer!

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!

Was here on Nov 28. It was a perfect day to go all the way up to Mount Seymour. Beautiful scenery, winterwonderland. Great duration of this hike - took us about 4 hours to get to first peak and back. Conditions were tough but it is achievable. Would do it again for sure!

My roommate, cousin and I did this trail October 4 through October 7 this year and it was incredible. There had been a little bit of fresh snow on the ground and it got into the teens at night, but was totally manageable. The first day we hiked from trail head all the way to the berg lake campground . It was tough but extremely beautiful. We had great sunny weather and a slight breeze. Day two we hikes a large portion of Snowbird pass which goes around the back of Rearguard and Mt Robson to the Mount Robson glacier and that was another incredible hike. We also did Mumm Basin, which has a great view of berg lake. Day three we hiked down to Kinney Lake campground and stayed here and the Day four we hiked out to the trail head. I’d like to go back someday, because it really was that amazing.

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.

Aug 4th, Great views. Easy to miss turn off as there no markers. Look for is after the wooden bridges. Then it is a steep climb up the gully. The 360 views are stunning. The lions, Gibson and Mt. Baker on a clear day. Going down was a bit of a challenge. not well marked. reached a ski run and walked down. Took 6 hours total. Bring extra water.

A difficult yet rewarding hike. The incline starts immediately after leaving the trailhead, and continues all the way to the divide. Once above the treeline, the views are panoramic and wonderful! I encountered snow about 2/3 up the climb in early July, but a little caution and it was fine – even with no poles. The hike's biggest downside is the road getting there; it's fairly long, and quite rough.

Just a heads up regarding trail conditions based on hiking there Sunday November 18, 2018. The trail is icy in sections and dangerous unless wearing Yacktracks or similar spikes; poles also recommended but not necessary.

The trail was crowded including many people in running shoes and lacking any additional layers of clothing. In addition, although leash is required at all times on dogs, only 1 dog out of at least 100 on the trail was on a leash including aggressive dogs with ignorant owners.

Also take note that the trail is poorly marked and it's easy to get lost. Cell service is spotty and GPS apps don't show the trails properly likely because of the lack of proper blazes at key points.

Aside from the warnings, this is a challenging trail and is rewarding. Allow yourself enough time, pack food, water and extra layers, wear spikes, consider poles, watch out for dogs and enjoy!

we hiked up the creek bed on remembrance day from the st marks trail. the creek has frozen over in spots and is quite sketchy with icey rocks. caution required, but the views from the top are spectacular. we came down via ski runs to save time

Fantastic hike on a clear November day! The views are stunning. Five hours round trip if you are fit and fast!. The distance shown for this hike is not accurate - my Suunto GPS said 18kms round trip and not the 12.5km as posted above.

Beautiful easy hike, although the length makes it harder than a walk in the park.

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!

Beautiful trail! Not too hard getting up as it only takes an hour to get to the ridge views. Made it up in hiking shoes only although it was snowy throughout and a bit icy. The views are worth every minute! Definitely doing this one again soon.

We tried! But turned around as it was pretty icy. Made the safety call. Unfortunately another lad did not and did in her ankle and needed rescue.. So proper shoes and ice gear highly recommended now. We went to Dog instead, but it had some icy parts as well. Beautiful day, but be safe!

great hike, lots of rocks....with snow and ice everywhere, as we found today, poles were very handy. great views.

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

Late entry from Fall last year. It was amazing views of Baker, and Mount Shuksan. It was clear day that day. Amazing views at the summit. It was worth it every sweats and to be rewarded with such of beauty..
The signs were pretty visible from the main highway. 12 miles of dirt road to the trailhead. Very narrow dirt roads and uphills. Compact car is doable. 4000 ft to the trailhead. And it’s about 6000 ft or more to hike to the summit.

Drove up in a SUV, drove slower to avoid the potholes. Saw some cars in the parking lot, so doable. In a previous comment, someone mentioned it is more like a walk. It is not. Right off the bat, you start with a 2 mile climb to the first ridge., approximately 1 hour up. Definitely not a beginner’s hike. The views from the ridge are spectacular. You can continue for another 2.5 miles, climbing on and off to the top ridge ( another hour or less).
We had sunny skies, clouds coming in as we left. Would highly recommend this hike!

Careful, as the other reviews state, this trail is poorly marked. It's easy to end up on another trail or veering into the bush. Use your common sense and trail map for this one. Getting back is equally as confusing so it might be an idea to take the ski slope back - something we wish we had done in hindsight, but only due to sundown approaching as we ended the trail. Despite some issues, the trail itself is great. Lots of scrambling and a little easy climbing. Amazing views at the summit and some wonderful views as you approach the final quarter.

Superb hike with great view of Mt Baker.

Beautiful hike, even on a rainy day. I’d say the majority of this hike is easy with the last 3 km being more moderate and a bit of a scramble right at the end. Finished in 4.5 hrs. Highly recommend.

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!

no fee for parking. bring water, no good place to fill your bottle at parking lot. take ski run , not trail for first 2km

Really nice hike with nice views of Mount Garibaldi that will help to wait before reaching this stunning Watersprite lake. I would rate it moderate, only the end in the rocks is a bit hard. We manage to pass with a 2WD V6 Silverado but we were close to turn back because of a big crack at 6.5k before the end. The road to Elfin Lake is an highway compare to this. I'd say the drive to the trailhead is harder than the hike :)
