Great view at one lookout point. I thought the signs were too small and not clear enough!

14k hike, takes us 4 hours. First 3k almost straight up a mountain (switchbacks) but then it gets easier for a while with a steep decline when closing in on buntzen lake. Nice scenery at the vistas. Not a hike to do alone, quite remote in areas. Hiking shoes/boots a must. Lots of water and snacks. Be bear-aware (bear droppings common) but rarely see large wildlife when hiking these trails. Really enjoy this hike :)

Perfect 10k hike where you can also run in many places. Changes in elevation and lots of different paths to explore when ready. Beautiful scenery. Rugged, hiking shoes recommended. Dog-friendly. Be Bear-aware.

The views are spectacular

Although you are close to the city, you will not hear cars. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a walk here in July. My Fitbit logged it as a 7.94 mile hike. There is some elevation change so bring water and a walking stick if you need to steady yourself. Will certainly go back!

Really enjoyed this hike! The first 2 km or so is pretty vertical and gets your heart going. From there it meanders up and down and opens up once in awhile for some crazy views. The third vista has the largest sitting area with the best view so you might want to aim to have lunch there. I'd recommend you bring lots of water as there aren't any creeks along the way.

If you plan to do the loop and come back down along the Buntzen Lake trail, you might want to bring a swim suit. There are some beautiful spots right off the trail, some much less pond scummy than others. My dogs have never been happier to see a lake, I was super jealous :)

I'd also suggest parking in the Overflow/Equestrian parking lot, as it's much closer to the trailhead than the main parking lot. You'll seen signs for it first as you drive into the park along Sunnyside.
