Did this hike with my dog. The first part is the hardest. Bring lots of water. God's country. It was absolutely beautiful. 06/26/18.

Loved it
800 metres from the Cabin we rented! Steep and challenging but views that were worth it:) had lunch on top at half way point went to the end and then back, about 6.5 hours. Quiet and peaceful, bring bear spray, make noise, they are around.

Loved this hike! We did it in approximately 7 hours and a half, but stopped 1 hour at the top. If you get at the top early enough, you can continue your walk for miles and miles because the mountain tops are all connected. The last km was quite hard because the ground is really soft and steep, but the view is definitely worth it.

Great day hike. Views from the top are worth it.

Great hike! Exactly what I was looking for. It took our group of 5 about 8 hours to complete. We could have shaved a few hours off if we didn’t stop for so many breaks. View at the top is pretty awesome. A little disappointed to find a quad trail on the back side once you summit.
The first 2-3km is by far the hardest part, after that fairly easy.
Lots of bear sign near the top, be sure you have spray or something.
We did this on May long weekend 2018 and no snow and dry trail.
