Reaching the summit is very Rewarding and challenging! 360 degrees of scenic mountain hug you the entire hike! about half way up you reach a meadow that is so incredibly breathtaking!! This peak is my favorite view!
Did this hike on the May Long weekend- still lots of waist deep snow! ‘Twas part of the entertainment and adventure!

We were out and back in about 5 hours and 15km. Very beautiful day hike with a good mix of steep ups and levelled ground, and a mix of open areas and in the trees. Still snow towards the top. Pack bear spray. We tried finding kinglet lake from the top of tuff puff, but didn’t quite make it there.

Great hike. I take the slopes off to the right of the main trail. Much more enjoyable. Rated Hard but I find it a more Moderate hike. Lots of places to explore off trail.

The scenery was amazing and the trail easy to follow, the name says it all but worth the effort!

Took the Tuff Puff hike up to the top then worked are way down to Kinglette Lake and down to the beginning of the trail. The hike up you will reach a fork in the trail the one on the right with rocks spelling TUFF will take you to the top the trail on left to the lake. The trail was amazing (lots of eye candy) and was mostly in the open. Would recommend enjoyed it!

This hike is amazing and one of my favourites! Easy trail head to find. The immediate incline is quite steep and we started late in the day so the heat made it more challenging. There is a beautiful valley where it was a bit windy but still warm before another incline. We went in June and we did have to hike through about 2 km of snow to reach the very top which was very fun! And when at the top...the views of the summit are phenomenal and so rewarding!

If you are not prepared it can be a tough go.
There are 3 main accents which will test your endurance but the reward of incredible views is well worth the 2+ hour accent.
Hiking poles is recommended due to the loose rock in the trail especially for the way down.
Will do the Kinglet Lake turn off next time.
