Beautiful trails especially this time of year with the fall leaves! We had a beautiful day overcast mixed with sun. Gorgeous views when you get to the Cross and a couple peaking views on the way up. Dog friendly!

it's a warren of mountain biking trails with a single vista. navigation checks are necessary every few hundred meters great trail surface though!

Trail is good shape but it definitely needs signs. I followed this map and the end has no view unless you walk maybe 150m and turn left (small View). Next time I hike there I won’t turn onto Paradise Field trail and instead keep straight where seems to be the summit.

We selected this loop route. The trail was quite wide and open at the beginning and then narrowed on some of the bike trails. Great views. Sparsely used trail...quiet and serene on a weekday hike.

I like this mountain but the way that this particular route tells you to go is up a heavily used route for bikes. I went on the weekend and found it to be annoying to go up the Double D route. This mountain offers other routes so try and find the nice hiking routes and dont use the bike paths on the weekend.

Amazing views of the valley. A little confusing to get to the top but with this map it should be a breeze. It would be nice if there were some signs in the trains to help with the hike. But such a beautiful spot don’t forget to bring a lunch this spot is beautiful

We loved the gradual incline, the summit offered the best spot to lunch. Views and forest are outstanding. I found the markings to be lacking (or non existent) and no map at the trailhead was a bit of a turn off. We're not locals, and although I'm good at navigating, we ended up asking for direction because there are a *lot* of intertwined and smaller trails and MTB offshoots. A great day and we'll definitely come back.

You are best to use this map or I am not sure how you would find your way around! Lots and lots of trails amazing view and a neat old rusted truck in the woods if you can find it! Big wide trails and they are adding beautiful cedar bridges and fencing and doing some nice maintenance work. Lots of exploring here

This is a very accessible trail and keeps my 64 year old lungs in good shape.

Great trail but could mark the trails better.

The view was totally worth it! If you haven't been before, we didn't see any signage, so it would be easy for ppl to get lost and turned around. Be mindful of your location and take water and snacks with you.

Good views. We wandered through the bike trails for a while. Looks like a great place for cross country biking.

This is not flat!!! 2 miles uphill the entire way. This has a nice view in 2 places. Bring hiking poles for knees on the way back down.

Amazing views at peak and fantastic surprise was the Inukshuk 'village'!
