A nice, shaded walk up on a hot day followed by spectacular views of the valley at the top.

Couldn't park quite at the start of the trail - the road gets a little rough but that only added 1.5 km or so onto the walk.

Lots of nature - squirrels, snakes, woodpeckers and turkey vultures.

Quite a bit of motorised traffic I wouldn't personally like to take young kids up there with bikes and trucks flying by.

The top has been slightly ruined by broken glass (everywhere) and several burnt out fires but you can dip off to the right when you reach the summit and settle down in a bit which is less spoiled!

Overall a nice hike, worth the climb!

The result of this hike is a stunning view of the Alberni valley. The first 20-30 minutes of steep hill hiking is tough if you're out of shape.

Superb view at the top. Decent trail. High clearance 4x4 required in some places
