Took about 8 hours round trip - with stops
Absolutely amazing climb if you’re not afraid of heights

Is a steady go for the whole time, the last portion is a decent scramble. Took 6 hours round trip with a few stops. This did not include much time at the top as was clouded over.

A very sustained incline! amazing for those who want to push themselves in the capacity of a day hike. Such a rewarding view from the peak. Made from trailhead to peak in exactly 2 hours 30 minutes with few breaks. Brunswick lake is worth cutting down to while you're in the area, cold water but not so much that you can't stay in and swim for a while.

It’s a bit of a scramble at the end to reach the peak but the incredible view is worth getting your hands dirty

July 25th. A buddy and I went and took us 3.5 hours up and 2.25 hours down. Amazing scenery once you hit the top peak. Bring lots of water. Bugs were a pest such as mosquitos, flies and horseflies ( I think ) it was all worth it!

Brunswick Mountain might be the most amazing peak in the Howe Sound. Its a consistant verticle haul with a good runable trail, perfect for training those mountain legs. Once you break past the tree line every step is immensly rewarded. From the top you can litterally see every monumental peak in the area from the Black Tusk to Mt Baker and everyone in between. Definitely a must do if you live anywhere close to the area. This will be another annual peak for me no doubt.

July 7-8, 2018: This was a difficult hike but well worth the gorgeous view at the top. The sunrises and sunsets from here are stunning. The incline is steep for 85% of the hike and requires some scrambling once you begin ascending the summit from the forest. With 40lbs+ backpacks, we hiked up in 4.5 hours and a gruelling 4hours down. There are very limited camping spots at the top, we were the only ones there overnight so we were able to choose the least rocky and flattest spot... maybe 5 tents max. Be very careful when climbing to the highest points, they call it a "no fall zone" for good reason!

I just want to ask how was the trail from those who hiked couple of days ago. Planning to go on Sunday and hesitating if our group should go. Any suggestions? Hoping for a reply and will be very appreciated. Thank you!

A great hike but definitely challenging at the top. The climb to the peak is steep on loose material and once at the top be careful, its narrow with and you don't want to fall. The view is worth the trek

Great trail for a day hike but be prepared to work hard if you are planning to spend the night after the hike up. After 2/3 it becomes very steep over 50% grade up to 75% near the top. you'll climb from 650ft msl to about 5100 ft msl.
There is a junction before it becomes steepest where you can choose to go left to lakes or right to another mountain. it is possible to go right and find another way down but it'll take a few days. Look at Google earth to find the route. Also I suggest to bring min 4 ltrs of water if your are planning to spend the night up there since there is no water streams available after 1/4 of the way up.
Very shaded and in the am the sun rises on the other side of the mountain.

Enjoy!

October 03,2015. Started at 6:15AM. Not many parking spots by the gate. Trail begins on an old service road. Creek crossing by 7:45AM. First views of the ocean by 8:35AM. Crossed the HSCT by 9:50AM. From here the trail gets quite steep. There is a very narrow but short ridge to the summit. Reached the top at 10:45AM.
