Absolutely a beautiful hike. We did the hike on Sunday January 20, 2019. Perfect weather, very easy to moderate hike. Very well maintained and well marked. Recommend to do.

Great hike especially for January. Literally got bit by mosquitos... it felt like summer. My brain was confused. It was a killer on the knees coming down but we didn't do the loop due to the sun going down and not having a lot of time because they close the gate at 4:30pm.

Just a quick conditions update: wet ground but no snow until past Polytrichum. Snow becomes continuous past approx 850m elevation. Spikes were helpful as it was hard packed. Subject to change with more winter weather systems on the way. Trail up to White Rock L/O involved much postholing and dodging blowdown. Not too pleasant, but with the usual nice view payoff!

Weather didn’t cooperate and we missed the views

Great hike but only saw 3 of the 10 views

Relatively easy....if youre in decent shape. Lots of stairs and lots of people. Would do it again first thing in the morning. Viewpoint spectacular.Wish Kayla

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

One of the toughest hikes I have done ! Great work out , I did it in 44 minutes

This trail has everything you’d want in a hike. Water features, amazing outlooks, some challenging stretches. Definitely recommend. Wasn’t as crowded as I was anticipating.

Beautiful views from every part of the path!

Great exercise, and a view that makes the climb worth it! Bring snacks and water!

Did this hike in October! Definitely think everyone should do it. Views are beautiful especially the last 1km to the viewpoint. Not a busy trail as we only saw one other person hiking it. As we were coming down we hit golden hour and that was something else. 10/10 hike, a good workout as it was a steep climb but worth it!

Hike/run took 1 hr 50 min.

It’s close to the city so it’s a pretty busy trail. Parking is very difficult on a weekend so it’s best to get there early. Great for an outdoor winter workout.

Easy to moderate hike: easy in terms of technical skills required but moderate in terms of fitness level. There are lots of steps which are very well maintained and the only way to get across three creeks and gorges. Beautiful, tall trees and a wonderful view at the end. In all, a very well maintained trail with lovely scenery along the way to a beautiful viewpoint.

Just completed this hike again today in snow shoes. There’s plenty of snow on the trail now, so I recommend snow shoes or spikes but some people seemed to be getting along with hiking boots and poles. The trail meanders through powder covered trees and terrain before coming out to a view of the city. It’s a very beautiful and easy hike. My only complaint is that, like most good hikes in Vancouver, the trail is very busy with other hikers. Overall a great trail for snow shoeing though.

Last time I hiked this trail was 30 years ago - much has changed. Crushed gravel laid on potentially muddy sections, bridges over creeks and hand railings on steep side slopes. Great accessible trail for all abilities.

I learned 2 things today that reacquainted me with the Westcoast rain; 1) touch screens on cellphones don’t often work and 2) OR Foray Rain Jacket and matching rain pants work awesome!

So many steps

Beautiful walk around Stanley Park.

Hike this trail today. Trail conditions are still very good. There has been a dusting of snow which starts about 4 km in on the trail. The temperature was quite cool 3c some icy spots also. Many people starting up the trail very late, many not so prepared. All in all, great hike.

Easy trail. Not much for views or amazing vistas, but perfect for those times when you have only a couple of hours and want to stretch your legs, get some fresh air. I've done this trail at least a dozen times and still enjoy it. We usually go clockwise around the lake to get the minimal bit of elevation out of the way first. Sometimes we pack a lunch to enjoy at the picnic area at the north end of the lake.

It typically gets quite busy, so we usually try to get on the trail early. Lots of people, lots of dogs (about half of which are running off-leash). The busy-ness is the only reason for my rating of 4/5 stars. The trail itself is great.

This was a difficult trail for me despite the fact that I have always been athletics and attending the gym regularly for many years. Hiking is a very different sport and when I finished the hike I experienced nausea for several hours. My recommendation is that if you are not conditioned for hiking like I currently am, start with easy hikes and build up your muscular endurance which was what I was mainly lacking.
