Amazing trail! Beautiful views along the way. Not super muddy (December 5th,2020). One section had a rope. Check other comments for the starting point as it is not where all trails puts it. Go further from a gravel Cory and there will be a painted rock at the start.!have fun - the climb is worth is!

HikingGreat!

Note: the trailhead is not in the location shown on map. its at the parking lot/quarry just up road. Trail is a constant climb - between medium and very steep. quite an enjoyable climb witt some great viewpoints along the way. not a long hike. the gate at the beginning of the Comox Lake logging road is closed Monday to Friday. It's open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Tough going and steep, was 1st time trying today Aug 23, 2020. Poles really helped, some slippery spots.

HikingGreat!

Challenging hike... but managed to complete it in 2 1/2 hrs (1 1/2 up, including stops and 1hr down). The total distance was definitively more than the displayed one in the app, but overall the view was worth it

The trail was in decent shape, although finding the trailhead set us back a bit. Like someone mentioned in a previous comment it’s around the 18.5 km mark on the Comox Logging Rd, there is a small road you turn off that leads up to a large parking area. The trailhead is not marked with any signage, but there are painted rocks with arrows. There is a small quarry area in the parking lot, and the trailhead is to the right of that. After a couple hundred metres you will come to a dirt road, there you will go right. After a short walk you will come to a junction, keep right of that and follow to the end and you will find the main trail. The trail is well marked and we had no issues after we started. Heavy incline most of the way, and there are lots of nice views of Comox Lake, Cruikshank River and the Comox Glacier. Georgia straight is also visible. Although I didn’t track with GPS I am positive the total distance is well over the 3.4km that is stated. The views on the way to the top are much nicer than when you reach the top, which is scattered with subalpine trees obscuring the view. Plenty of wildlife and beautiful wildflowers around the bluffs. Seen a family of Ruffed grouse and also a northwestern alligator lizard on the trail at around 1500ft, which is the highest I’ve ever seen this species. All in all it was a good hike with great scenery, wildlife and views.

The road to the trailhead is at the 18.5km mark. Overgrown road on your right before the Cruikshank Bridge. There are no signs leading to the trailhead. Limited parking. When you turn on the grassy road you have to drive in to a dead end where there is a painted rock on the ground to your right pointing to the trail. Challenging hike. We did it with three kids and they powered through with some obstacles. The terrain can be a challenge. I recommend. Some great viewsat the top.

A heads up about the trail head, for me the map is placing it at a sharp bend along the main road (an intersection in reality/Google maps). The trail head is actually slightly south along the main road, you turn right and just up a small hill there is a cleared out parking lot and the actual location of the trail. Really enjoyable hike. If you like scrambling over rocky terrain you'll enjoy yourself too. Some great views of the lake and Cruikshank river on the way up and the summit is a neat forested area of dried up trees and moss on a sort of rolling rocky landscape.
