It is definitely very steep and there is a sign now that says no Public Access as CRD has a center at the top now. We still climbed it and it was gorgeous :)

Great hiking. No need to leash your dog as it is remote and leashing would be dangerous on the many vertical sections and cliffs you will discover.

will definitely do this trail again.

Steep beautiful trail. Incredible panorama up top.

This was a good loop trail. it's a bit tricky to figure out where the trail is in places, but that was half the fun!

a great hike with a few difficult sections. the views and beauty make it worth it.

The trail is all covered by snow even now. The last half mile is steep to go up esp. in an icy hill. The snow starts to melt quickly and it is very slushy at some parts. It is difficult to go to top because of snow..

It was a challenge but I saw a black bear on the trail and that was awesome

More on the difficult side for the top loop. Expect amazing views but lots of ups and downs, poor trail markers and scrambling. But well worth the effort!

Beautiful views of the Sooke Hills, Metchosin and the Olympic peninsula. I would rate it as moderate rather than easy due to its length and a fair amount of rock scrambling. I would love to do this hike again when it is drier.
