Hiked this trail this morning and enjoyed it. We didn't run into other hikers until we were halfway down. So not very busy which is nice. Took just over 3 hours with a lengthy break at the top.

Elevation gain was not the same as posted here. Only about 542m. The elevation was gradual and the views were very enjoyable at the top of the ridge.

Distance was about 10km round trip. There is some logging in the area, but parking available very close to the trail head.

It is certainly a nice, easy and quiet trail to kick start the hiking season! The trail head was a little difficult to find but the view is definitely worth it!
