No route finding. Made the summit and 500 m beyond. Yes there's a rocky ridge spine but you can be off it mostly if you like. Its a straight shot up to the summit. Takes awhile to get views but they are GREAT! Crossed creek twice but feet stayed dry. Cross where you like and then just rejoin the track

Nice hike today but unable to reach the summit. Quite a rocky ledge and a lot of route finding. An uphill grunt mostly in the trees. Once you get out of the trees-beautiful views! There are 2 creek crossings near the start of trail. The first crossing needs shoes removed, look for flags across the creek and a cairn. Hike through the trees a short while before coming to the creek again, cross over the log and look for the cairn to take you uphill. You will get to a Y in the trail-right to Lineham Creek trail and we stayed left up to Lineham Ridge.

Nice walk through the woods

Road beyond the campground is closed down to the day use area. No bridge crossing, but river was only knee deep and manageable. Trail is only discernible about 10% of the time, so make sure you have map/navigation and route finding skills. Good weather, no spectacular views by any means, but a good change from the usual and we had the trail to ourselves.

the trail is easy to find from the parking lot. as you get in about 20 minutes, the trail goes into the creek bed. follow along - there is a blue ribbon on a tree marking the first place you should look to cross the creek (it's a bit rough going, but stick with it). walk a short distance (maybe a couple hundred meters) and then cross back. the cross back is easy along a large log, and you will find the rocky creekside flat and the trail picks up again from there. if you're not on an obvious path, look until you find it. I did this hike July 14 and there was lots of fresh bear evidence. do not go without bear spray as you spend a lot of time in the woods. views from the top a excellent.

Trail was quite muddy and mostly through the trees so you don’t get to see much. It was quite muddy but we didn’t go to the very end. I wouldn’t go on this trail a second time.

Road out Foran Grade then came back on Death Valley Trail. Very muddy and slippery. Used my fat tire bike. A regular tired bike could not have done it. To muddy to hike as well. Would be better later in the season after it’s a little dryer.

Need GPS cause a lot of the hike has no defined trail. Views are definitely worth it.

It is EXTREMELY muddy this time of year if you are hiking. Multiple corssings of small streams as well, wear waterproof shoes or bring extra socks. Other than that, it's an easy, well marked trail.

Good trail a bit muddy in some spots had the kids and dog with me still quite a bit of ice on the water. Came across a dead cow on one side of the trail caught us off guard lol but made for a good story. Gates are still closed to get to other trails. Nice sunny day with the kids

It was hard to stay on the trail when it goes down the road and crosses, but we managed to ind our way. A very nice and quiet walk through the woods. It was very wet and muddy today with the fresh snow.

Beautiful trail and scenery, very muddy today ( April 7th ) was a great hike to start the season off. will definitely come back in the summer for just an easy day hike and see the summer scenery.

This is a fabulous trail. The trail had been groomed for cross country skiing but we were able to snowshoe along side. You go through trees and open meadows. A small view of the mountains coming down the hill through the trees. Not sure you would be able to see the mountains in the summer. We stopped a lot taking photos and listening to the silence.

Although this trail looks great, it was incredibly hard to navigate. The trail isn't clearly marked, tried both in the summer again in late fall, and even with GPS was far too much bush wacking to actually enjoy. Sandy Mcnabb trail is the small route at the trail head and the remainder is pretty much made up. If you are looking for trails in the area, look up Blue Rock Provincial Park or Sheep River Provincial Park to get the trails in the area. The trails are also highly used by equestrian so really chewed up. Can't complain with the views of the mountains throughout the trail though.

Hiked in for two day stay the trail is washed out a lot you really have to pay attention to keep on it. Seen beat sign and wolf sign didn’t see any animals other than a few small sheep ten horses went in as I left so the trail should be a lot more prominent after that.

Follow @TheBackCountryCamper for pics. Started the day off at 9am. Nobody on the trail or Lineham parking lot. Hike started off with a quick short incline then went up and down for the first 1km. upon reaching the river I found myself a bit lost as the trail heads on to the rocks. Luckily a Inusuk stood out and picked up the trail again. After crossing the river over the dropped logs, the trail enters think woods. I found this part of the trail quite boring to be honest. The only thing to look at for 4-6km are the trees or ground haha. HIGHLY advisable to have bear spray for this reason as well. Found it difficult to see far through the trees. Once breaking through the trees it's a steep narrow climb to the Range. I found this part the most rewarding for great pics of the area. Overall all, great for a couple range pics. I wouldnt plan a day-date or family trip.

Great hike if you want something easier. Had some beautiful views
