This thing kicked my ass. Legs feeling it a few days after still. Did it quickly. Just to second peak and back. But should not have done it quickly. Definitely a good challenge and beautiful views to see

Favourite hike to do every year

One of my favourite hikes in Vancouver so far - although I've only been here 3 months.
Tough but not difficult. Steep steps to start and some moderate climbing (chain assisted) between 1st and 2nd peaks. We didn't go to 1st peak, but 2nd and third are definitely worth the effort and a little quieter than leading up to 1st.

Did the loop back from 3rd peak, but this was very strenuous on our knees after the climb and would probably have preferred to return the same way (even with the chain assisted decent)

Definitely recommend this walk, giving 3 - 4 hours not to be rushed.

Magnificent view... a bit steep with some chains closer to the top to help with the hike over the stones

艰难的一行!挑战了自己

We did this with a group of Beaver Scouts back in June. Kids starting at age 5 and up and adults. A good leg workout and challenging for a new hiker.

Very tough!!

I'd say I'm a moderate hiker and my partner is not a hiker at all, we did the first peak fairly easily, was a bit rough on the knees going down. Super busy in the summer on the weekends, but nonetheless worth it when you see the view.

Amazing view. You can see the 1st and 2nd peaks from the top. Very challenging for the average hiker.

Steep with lots of stairs and high rock steps, make sure you wear good shoes. I went to the first peak with my dog. She was able to go off leash but I tied her up before the summit. A ladder and chains were in place to assist up the boulder. She probably could have scaled the rock but it seemed safer to leave her below. Pretty busy trail on a Tuesday mid-morning. Great for a short, intense hike with beautiful views.

After you get past the stairs, the rest is pretty easy. I'd say the stairs are probably 1/3rd of energy exertion on this hike. This trail is the least amount of work for the most amount of payoff :)

Did this one a couple months ago and loved the challenge. Was even better the second time as I knew what to expect. Took 3 hours motoring pretty fast. It is difficult - long, scrambling, inclines. But not impossible. It's nice how it repeatedly challenges you and then evens out for a bit. Eat a good breakfast and bring lots of water. I went through 3L. Worth the beer and view at the end!

Stairs!! Stairs!! And more stairs!!! Recommend hiring the peaks in reverse order, so much better, so start with Peak #3!

Stairs! Stairs! and more stairs!!! Do the loop counterclockwise - so start your ascent to the third peak then second then first. Beautiful sunset views, but need lamps for descent.

Beautiful hike with a gorgeous view on top! The first part with the stairs is quite hard and you have to keep energy for the rest!
We did the hike between 3:30pm and 7pm and stayed at the top of the mountain for the sunset, which was a spectacular and memorable moment! we went down with the gondola.
Amazing hike that I strongly recommand!

Wasn't "hard" at all. I think hard would be a dangerous hike with lots of scrambling. There was none of that TBH
Just stairs and steady climb all the way. Good butt and leg burn. Beauty views

Relatively short, challenging, with stunning views at the top. Three peaks to visit!

Challenging hike, loved it

This was a bit of a challenge and I loved every bit of it.

An intermediate hike with great views of Howe Sound. There are three peaks with pretty much the same views, we chose the second one. No special gear is required, unless you're rock climbing all the way up. There are chains and ladders at places to aid the climbing wherever it's required.
