It was a little hard to find the trail head! You park at the resort at the bottom of the hill, then climb the closed dirt road on the right of the resort. And follow it as it leads to the left til you see the sign for high line. Also note that this trail is 5km ONE WAY! We mistakenly thought that was round trip and were surprised to find this is actually a 10km hike. However, it boasts beautiful forest views and lots of lichen draping over the pines.

Lovely walk through the forest (shared mountain bike trail). Did as a loop via Highline trail to Three sisters creek to Powerline Trail. We've only done this trail in the winter, would suspect it to be pretty busy with mountain bikers in the summer. Easy incline, went after fresh snow so can't comment about ice, but crampons always helpful for winter hiking. The creek and waterfalls were great, cross the creek at the 1st falls and follow the creek on the left side until you reach the 2nd falls. Tried to loop back via powerline trail but accidentally found ourselves hiking back through the golf course. Creek and falls had some people, very few along highline trail.

Very nice day out today. Sheltered in trees. Icy patches if you want to go top of Falls.

Path on the way up was packed snow and fine for both me and the dog. Once the trail leveled out there were some patches with ice and I did end up slipping and falling on a decline. You’re in trees most of the hike so no views. Will be coming back in the summer.

Horrible hike, very muddy, very dark. Saw some deer. Views are not worth breaking your back.

Trail was in good shape but glad we had spikes. Starts steep up, levels out then down hill to the Three Sister Village. Back up hill on the way back. No views throughout except at the beginning and end. Otherwise solid trees. Lots of downhill bikes so the dogs to be on leash.

Lightly used. Decent snow. A few bikes had been through. Only saw 2 other hikers. A lot of up and down and switch backs. A moderate hike and what looks like an awesome bike trail.

HikingGreat!

Perfect for my regular hiking boots. Beautiful trail, even though it was chilli, we took 2 hours from one point to the next. Then we walked straight back, completing a loop. So 3 hours total. The frozen falls were a nice treat.

Beautiful trail! We did this on Saturday the 13th. It was well marked, snow was packed down, not too many people either. Highly recommend for a nice not too short but too long afternoon hike

The trail is well marked and travelled. However there is a fairly significant and sloped ice flow crossing the path about 3.5km in. We had crampons and poles but a fall wouldve meant a pretty good slide downhill. We turned around and took the other leg of the trail back to Quarry Lake.

Incline to start no matter which side you enter from, then it levels out. Trail snow is packed and not too icy. The view of the Three Sisters is so picturesque with the bridge and creek.

HikingGreat!

Was a great start to our trip. The Highline section was very “moderate” in difficulty and was perfect for a good warm up. We decided to attempt the Grassi Knob off Shute and we didn’t get a chance to complete it. Was to late in the day. That section was very steep in sections and extremely happy we had brought our crampons in our packs for the decent. All in all it was a great day for a hike.

It was really steep, the incline was tough in the icy conditions, but wow, what a beautiful hike
