It was a decent Hike, and you can actually do it in a loop if you know your way down from the lookout point,there is a small hidden trail that leaves from the left of the viewing point down towards the train tracks. There are no signs on the trail at all, we were afraid we were lost as this was our first visit. We recommend you to download a map before going even though the trail is pretty short.

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.
