Beautiful views!!! In light of the sight restrictions due to all the fire smoke this summer, we had spectacular views today. The 360 view from the top of the first peak were great. We were a
Little surprised to see snow clinging to the tops of some of the more distant mountains but it sure enhanced the scene.

I considered this trail as easy, the view from up there is amazing, I really recommend it. There were several children with their parents there.

Nice trail with junction trail to mount Seymour. We spotted a bear on our way back. You can find tons of berries in the trail.

Great Hike

Fun trail and amazing view at the top. Not really any bugs in early August. Quite busy though, and also very exposed to the sun. I went on a hot day with my dog and I’m lucky I brought so much water.

Great views but too busy not worth doing summer weekends. Early morning during the week or in the fall. Dog friendly when not too busy. Great views.

Nice moderate trail, I wouldn't categorize it as hard. Amazing views at the end. In the summer it's a great 3 hour return hike, in the winter it's an even easier 3 hour return snowshoe trail.
Highly recommended.. here is a video of our snowshoeing trip earlier this year: https://youtu.be/7FVLNTGHriw

Did hike today.. nice beautiful hike... fantastic view..

Great little trail! Took me about 1.5 hours return trip. Wear appropriate shoes as there’s plenty of rocks and roots to get snagged on. It was quiet when I went as it was raining lightly - none the less it was very peaceful. Orange markers guide you along the trail.

Awesome trail! We planed on hiking all 3 peaks today but we misjudged the weather and we ended up hiking in 35 Celsius and by the second peak we ran out of water so we needed to turn around. Bugs and mosquitoes are not so bad now compared with 2 weeks ago. Quite doable and don't linger around any body of water or they will get you. So please remember to have lots of water and sun screen since you will be in the open for quite a bit. Up to the first peak not so hard but heading up to the second, quite a bit of a scramble, use all your 4's in places. So much fun and absolutely amazing views.
I don't know how, but we ended up on the far side of the first Peak too, lots of snow there still.

It was easy to hike but the view is stunning ..There are lots of roots just be careful. Some trees have no orange sign and confusing.

A technical hike which requires a good level of experience to navigate especially during some of the rocky descents!

Views are fantastic at several points across the hike especially up top!

Would be a lot more challenging in the snowmelt periods of April-June

Gorgeous swimming lake (late July). Even in late July we found a patch of snow around the corner. Views down to Vancouver centre.

What a beautiful trail and the views are amazing. Definitely one of the best hikes we've been on. We will be doing this one again numerous times.
The last climb up to number 2 peak is a hard push after hiking into it. But well worth the push.
Highly recommend this hike.

Did this hike with my son during early summer. Lots of blood thirsty black flies and mosquitoes. Be sure to have good hiking boots as trail is mostly tree roots, rocks, mud, uneven terrain and some snow. But, the reward is the view at the end. Did this in approximately 4 hours including rests and time spent at the viewpoint. If your planning to bring your pet, expect the feet of your dog to be muddy after this hike.
And, watch your every step as a twisted ankle will ruin your day.

Mostly dry by now, there is some construction between the trail head and the lake. Watch for your steps, as there are a lot of roots. Bugs can be annoying, bring some spray, The view at the end is spectacular. Great for kids.

Mount Seymour hike was a great but technical hike. Make sure you take comfortable shoes that don’t slip your feet will ache by the end of the hike. Take bug spray. They were everywhere. Great views through out the entire hike. The last peak is worth every drop of sweat.

Amazing trail for both snowshoeing & hiking! Great for solo hikers!

Did all 3 main peaks + Mystery Peak today. Trail was fairly well marked, though I did accidentally stray from it a couple times - it was never hard to get back on track. There was a bit of snow in a few shaded spots, but it was never an issue - though if you did it in runners they might get wet.

Bugs weren't nearly as bad as I feared. There was basically one horsefly with me for the entire trip out and back, but he became more like a travelling companion than anything. There were no swarms or masses of bugs like others have experienced, though I used basic DEET bug repellant.

Regardless, the trail was in pretty good condition. The scrambles at the end for the Seymour summit were moderate, and I had to rest for a minute a few times, but it wasn't too terrible for a somewhat out-of-shape 35 year old. Was about 6 hours out and back, including all detours and stops. 8.7 miles according to my watch.

Good hike. Pretty easy. We took a detour which made it longer and a tad harder. The view is good from the top.

Very challenging rrail, half of it not well marked. Bring lots of water and food! Beautiful place!

View is spectacular! The trail is not so clean with wet mud and big roots but with the challenge comes the reward. I

Definitely get ready for an incredible hike. The mud made it so much fun. Watch the roots, but I would do this hike over and over. We took the dog and he loved it even on the leash. The shade, the views, the weather made this one of my favorite hikes. Not very busy on a Wednesday morning. Even the drive up was pretty.

amazing views

A moderate hike but the amount of bugs and the fact that there is still snow on the trail made it more challenging. We turned around after the first peak due to the unbearable bugs. If you go, I recommend to wear a bug net and long sleeve top and pants.

According to comments from last month, this trail seemed to be great, family doable and fast enough to do it on the afternoon. I’m sure the view really worth it and a few weeks ago we would rate it 5 stars.
But unfortunately, it appeared that this was not the good period to do it since more and more bugs were flying around us and the snow was melting. The path was sometimes so slippy that it could be dangerous, and 400m before arriving to the first peak, people comming back told us the bugs and the slippy path were getting worse. There was so much flies attacking us and we had no snowshoes so we decided to give up before the awesome views... it’s too bad because the trail is so beautiful !
So if you plan to do it in july, better come well prepared for melting snow and maybe begin on the morning so the flies won’t be such a lot !

A very rewarding hike. The trail is still very muddy, with snow still covering a decent sized section of the trail. Wear appropriate footwear! The trail is quite rocky, and covered in roots, so watch your step! The view at the top is stunning, and defiantly worth the hike!
