Great hiking. No need to leash your dog as it is remote and leashing would be dangerous on the many vertical sections and cliffs you will discover.

a great hike with a few difficult sections. the views and beauty make it worth it.

The trail is all covered by snow even now. The last half mile is steep to go up esp. in an icy hill. The snow starts to melt quickly and it is very slushy at some parts. It is difficult to go to top because of snow..

It was a challenge but I saw a black bear on the trail and that was awesome

More on the difficult side for the top loop. Expect amazing views but lots of ups and downs, poor trail markers and scrambling. But well worth the effort!

Beautiful views of the Sooke Hills, Metchosin and the Olympic peninsula. I would rate it as moderate rather than easy due to its length and a fair amount of rock scrambling. I would love to do this hike again when it is drier.
