This is a great hike if you're looking for something short with a beautiful payoff. After you go through the tunnel, you take an immediate right and it's up for about 1k to get to the Trestle. You get to enjoy a beautiful view of Mt. Finlayson from the trestle. This isn't a good hike to do with children as there is no railing on the trestle.

Great trail - step up the south face, but beautiful views, and great descent on the north side. Clear views up the Stanch.

Going up and down the rocks was a little scary at times, but such a great hike.

great hike! went up from Goldstream Provincial Carpark, had fun on the rocks, and reached the summit to amazing views. it was a little smoky, but still nice. walked down the rocks from the summit to look over the estuary. we went down the much easier trail route down the back side, and reached Finlayson Arm Road, where we walked for 20 minutes until hitchhiking in the back of a pickup truck. Good Times!

Well maintained trail with the opportunity to see wildlife.

Super easy, great view, and enjoyable! The walk by the river is EXCELLENT. This is such a beautiful place!

One of my favourite trails to do! Do this one a few times a month. Definitely recommend it!

Fun hike (not too hard) with a unique view at the top and a gorgeous waterfall to cool off in at the end!

A steep ascent but not overly long. Definitely worth the couple of hours to hike there and back. Bring a camera and binoculars lots to photo and look at.

I have hiked this trail twice, once from the backside and the other ascending the front. Both are challenging hikes I thought the front was more rock climbing and the back more trail like. Definitely worth the effort to reach the summit. Bring a pair of binoculars there are some good views. Next time I'm going to park at the Finlayson Arm Rd entrance about 3km further up the road from Goldstream, it's a much less populated hike and I think a more enjoyable hike to the summit.

Great hike and great view from the top. I'm not a fan of overly populated trails and quite prefer solitude, which is what you get on the backside of the mountain. We do the loop by coming back on the Finlayson Arm Road
