Trail overgrown with stinging nettle. Found bear scat as well.

no real views for most of the hike, trail is rough/poor and until you reach the ridge, the forest is not attractive

Really well maintained. No need for anything more than running shoes.

Mostly used by Mountain bikes and dirt bikes. The trail is often very narrow, no lake view during the hike. But it is challenging and good exercise for people with good condition. Remember to bring sufficient water supply.

A little shorter and steeper than expected (I'm in poor shape). Otherwise, a nice little hike through the forest. The forest is beautiful with old growth tree's and bright, green, lush vegetation, even in the middle of summer. A nice walk to keep in my back pocket for another time.

Fun hike at Cultus lake. There are some short steep sections on this hike but overall pretty easy. The trees are cool. Next time I come back to Cultus lake I will have to do Teapot hill.

A great in and out trail. It’s perfect for those timed hikes or quick hikes on busy days.

The branch point for the International Ridge is well marked. Steady climb to the ridge. I found two Bear deposits and the trail is overgrown in some areas by stinging nettle. This trail has lots of potential but requires some bush wacking.

Have done this hike several times since I was a little girl. First time was a class field trip - it was very memorable and I was excited to bring my 5 year old to see the trees. (We hiked it in November) Trail has 2 possible entrances - the one from the campground is a bit steeper and possibly harder to find. The second is closer to teapot hill (trails will connect if you feel really adventurous) and is a much more gradual climb. If I do it again I will take the trail back, we parked at the boat launch and had to walk back on the road which was a little sketchy with dogs & a kid. But if you’re looking for an easier/relaxing or family friendly hike, this one is great!

Went on this hike on an early April evening. The old growth trees and moss create a fairytale in the forest. A beautiful place for nature lovers to hike under the canopy and at this time was completely empty, but I would assume that once the campsite fills up it is another story. The trailhead is through campsites which means if the gates are closed there is a bit of a walk to get to it. There were some moderate inclines and a set of stairs to walk around the Seven sisters but in general, it was a simple hike if taken at the correct pace. Happy hiking!

Great short hike, all levels all skills for trail running, light hikes, training, nature hikes, photography. See the incredible moss and lichen growth at their best in the rainy months. Any time but the summer the trial is lightly used by the locals.

Nice easy hike. No great views, but a nice little loop around some 500+ year old Douglas Fir trees.

Nice easy walk for family

Attempted this trail on September 25th. I could only manage the first 1 km of the International trail once you turn off Watt Creek trail. It was just too overgrown and the trail seemed to disappear at that point. I also made the mistake of wearing cropped pants and my bare ankles paid for it (stinging nettles, rough bush). I ended up going back down and continuing along the Watt Creek trail.

Hiked this trail from the Edmeston Rd trailhead to the 0.8 km "hard" connecting trail (which connects to The Seven Sisters trail). Nice, wide, easy trail. Beautiful area.

Hiked down to this trail from the Watt Creek horse trail via the "hard" 0.8 km connecting trail a few days ago. It's a nice, easy trail. The mini loop to view the Seven Sisters is worth investigating (500+ years old Douglas-fir trees, up close and personal).

Great hike

Good trail, nice and cool during the hot summer days, nice little creeks throughout the trail.

There was a large nest of black and white hornets about 15 minutes from the trailhead. they are hidden in the bushes. unfortunately my 5 year old was attacked by 2 of them and we had to turn back.

had a hard time finding trailhead as the directions were not correct . we had to go to the campsite registration booth to find out where it is after travelling back and forth on the road for half an hour nowhere does it say that it is in entrance bay campsite(just past site 8 there is a sign.) definitely would not say it is easy/for all levels starts out fairly steep. did not complete the hike as it was too hot for such a steep hike.

absolutely love this trail

You can join up to Teapot on this one. Quite an incline at first but then rolling hills after about 15 mins.

Hiked up to international Ridge with the intention of summiting Amadis but couldn't make it all the way on July 5th 2018. The trail starts just off the road and is easily accessible to all vehicles. The first two kilometers or so of this trail go along a very well maintained wide horse trail. After about two kilometers you will reach a junction, go left towards international ridge. The trail here becomes slightly overgrown, when I did it much of the trail was covered in plants and stinging nettle, after about 2.5 maybe 3 kilometers of slight uphill through that you will start going uphill towards the ridge. This part of the trail is reasonably steep but luckily not overgrown for the most part. You will be treated to some small viewpoints of Cultus lake, Columbia Valley and the Fraser Valley looking West along the way. At the 7 kilometer mark you will come across a viewpoint looking North and East and you will have a view of the Cheam range, Chilliwack river valley and Chilliwack itself. Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue on from here as there is no water on the trail (at least as far as I went) and I was running out. So if you plan on going all the way to Amadis it may be a good idea to pack a lot of water.

I really like this walk for a quick cardio. Up and down all the way with a nice small stair climb at the end. Beautiful trees and plants in this walk.

Good workout. Best to have two people with vehicles so you can park on either ends

While this is a great hike in terms of a physical challenge the views are somewhat lacking. The dense forest at the higher elevation allowed little to no view of Cultus Lake. Still a great grind though if all you want is exercise!
