I was here yesterday before sunrise. Unfortunately the bridge was blocked off with closure signs. I thought it was opened up again for winter, I guess they have more work to do? the trail head was closed at the time I went.

Great trail, minor scramble at the top. But windy and chilly. Amazing views.

Trail closure extended for the winter season 2018/19. The early snowfall and smoke this year delayed the new trail alignment so it will be completed in spring 2019 then reopened!

Was still closed yesterday. Sign at trail head said closed until early October for trail maintenance. A local said next week for scheduled reopening... not 100% sure if they are planning to reopen on schedule? Anybody know?

Is this trail still closed? We are planning to go October 10. Would it be open by then?

Have done this hike about four times due to easy access and a well marked trail. Always bustling with tourists, so if you want a good seat at the summit either go very early or pop over to miners peak instead.

Sept 20- still closed :(

Closed for another month :(

This ones on my top five under six. Beautiful quick incline all the way up, trails are quite clear; lots of foot traffic. If you make it to the flag at the peak the views are spectacular.
On a side note if you head right at the top you can also do Miners Peak so you can check off two amazing hikes in one day trip. Happy hiking.

Expérience incroyable! Quel ascension! Un vrai bonheur! La vue est incroyable!!

I love this hike and was hoping to squeeze it in on sept 8th. Can anyone confirm if it’s open? I was there two weeks ago and the sign said it would be open by aug 28th.

Still closed on Sept. 6.

Thinking about hiking it Sept 8th, 2018. Can someone confirm the trail is still closed?

I got literally hooked into hiking right after I did Ha Ling last June. It was an amazing experience and spectacular view from the summit. Can't wait to do it again as soon as the new trail open

CLOSED , no end date listted

Trail closed for maintenance, August 7-30. Barricaded at the trail head, don't attempt.

A steel climb capped off by some amazing 360° views of the surrounding area. The hike has a good variety of terrain - from wooded forest to mountain top Alpine. The top of the hike gets a bit steep and rocky which makes it a but slippery, so make sure you bring good hiking boots.

Good hike, gets challenging higher up but doesn't take too long to get to the peak. It is busy so you have to stop to let people past on the narrow parts but I enjoyed it :)

Was amazing trail nothing impossible to hike. Just take your time to get to the top and do not bring heavy stuff in your backpack.

This trail was very steep, with lots of loose underfoot gravel / dirt etc. for most of it. The last push to the top through scree was particularly steep. worst part was the trip back down, very unpleasant as almost impossible to maneuver the trail without slipping and sliding. Lots of really rude fellow trekkers coming up behind at speed, letting dogs off leash and such. Looks like there are some trail improvements underway, but still not a trail we would do again. Recommend hiking shoes, poles and a good bit of water. Also do this trail early to avoid crowds.

Great views

Awesome sunrise hike

Took 3 hours with quite a few breaks on the way up.
Super busy, recommend going earlier in the morning!

Very busy trail on the weekends, worth the crowd if your are from out of town. If you are a local wait until a weekday, it will be much more enjoyable!

The view is breathtaking! It takes 2-3 hours to hike this trail if you keep a steady pace and spend only a couple minutes at the top before your descent.

A good challenge due to the elevation gain, but the views from the top are also an excellent reward. Hiking shoes are a must have for this hike

Absolutely beautiful views every step of the way! The drive to the base of the climb was very scenic but it had a quite curvy/bumpy road, bit rough on the car. The climb was a bit exhausting due to steepness. 3hrs up, 2hrs down for someone that doesn't do a lot of inclines, many people passed us though. 100% worth the climb. The whole way up had great views and the top makes you feel on top of the world! Wear shoes with a good grip, lots of loose stones the closer you get to the top which makes it very slippery. The evening was a nice time to go as it wasn't too busy.

Had a great time on this hike, not too busy, great views, fun to play "find the path" once you are on the scree past the tree line. I really enjoyed this one!

Started Sunday @ 6 am. I got to the top at exactly 7 am.
I pushed myself on this hike. 2627’ elevation gain for the 1.9 miles up. 50 minuets back down to my car. I took a few stops to enjoy the view and take some pictures. For the most part the trail is well defined. Towards the top, in the rocks, it’s easy to get out of line.. but at that point you know where the peak is. There were 6 others people that got the worm before me, as they were headed down before I reached the top. They were us early to watch the sunrise.

Honestly an amazing trail for the short ascent time (1.5-2 hrs). It gets really busy, ideally you should start off around 7-8 am to beat off the crowds at the top. Nothing technical just very steep.
