this trail is much longer than stated on this app. we hiked for 1.25 hours up expecting to reach the summit. we saw no signs of this trail reaching the top anytime soon so i pulled up this website with a better description of the trail: http://www.trailpeak.com/index.jsp?con=trail&val=6143&md=OLD

this is a big long arduous hike similar in climb to the grouse grind but longer. we had to turn back as we weren't properly equipped/provisioned to reach the top. I'm sure it is well worth it but we will have to wait and see for another time.

Definitely a good hike! All uphill, would've been useful to have hiking poles for sure. I'd also say roundtrip this trail was closer to 11km.
