HikingGreat!Rocky

The parking was great and trail is easy to follow thanks to all the signs along the way. The trail itself was full of exposed rock face and loose rocks so you have to be careful, especially when it rains as the rocks get slippery. At one point a stream runs in the middle of the path so waterproof shoes are recommended! Trail is well maintained though with no fallen trees. The views are stunning and we did the North and South peak loop in 2 1/2 hours with breaks.

Sturdy boots recommended due to rough spots. Poles aren't a bad idea. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. Take a few minutes to enjoy the overlook at the easterly end of the peak.

Chinese Mountain. Dec 28, 2020. No snow. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow it. In a rainy day it could be a bit dangerous because the rocks are slippery even though you are using good gear. It took me 2h08m including the photo time and short breaks. The views are amazing, specially if you start late and wait for the sunset up there. I came back to my car in the darkness but I had my headlamp and no problem at all. Garmin info: Time 2h08m Elev Gain 393m Max Elev 279m Distance 6.07km

What a great hike! It was slippery in places after a big rainfall yesterday. The views, especially from South Chinese Mt were fabulous. Very well signed and easy to navigate.

Great hike to get the lungs going and to see great views of Rebecca spit and Campbell River. We hiked the north view first as it is an in and out then went back to the south view and looped around back to parking lot. Few tricky spots but nothing serious.

We did north Chinese mountain, then South, and then went on to Beeches Mountain, which I can recommend. It was a fairly long day doing the three but well worth it. Make sure you have good waterproof hiking boots as it’s pretty steep in places with a lot of loose rock and water. Wouldn’t want to do this in the rain, it looked like it would be a hazard coming down. Great views from South Chinese mountain and from Beeches. It gets pretty steep going up to Beeches but we managed this with a baby in a sling- it wasn’t too bad. Take lunch, there are lots of great spots to rest and take in the scenery. Great hiking, would go again. Trails well maintained but download the map as they are hard to spot at times.

Nice trail, took us approx 30 minutes to reach the north peak from base. Incline is steep but there are breaks of flatter land in between.

Nice trail with great views at the top. Lots of variety with trail types (gravel road, dirt rock, creek bed). Several bluffs with views. Some rock climbing areas on the trail too.

Nice well-maintained, well marked trail. We only did the north mountain and later found out that the south is much better. Views are nice at the top but we went in mid morning and the light was directly in our eyes so not very good for photography. Suggest doing the full loop with the south mountain and skip the north unless you want a longer hike and want to do both.

Hiked the trail on July 8th and made it to the South Peak in 45 minutes (I’m a pretty average hiker). The trail was chill but you could get lost if you’re not watching closely for blazes. Overall chill hike! Definitely worth going to both peaks and on to Beech Mtn!

HikingRockyScramble

This is a good intermediate trail that is well marked. Much of the trail is quite rocky and in many places it is literally a stream bed, especially on the south side of the loop. Trail traverses many rock outcroppings and occasionally results in a game of where did the trail go (kind of like where's Waldo). There are a few places that require scrambling up (or down) steep rock outcroppings, so be ready to use your hands. There are also a couple short sections where the trail traverses a narrow ledge. The views from atop S. Chinese Mountain are well worth the hike and bits of scrambling to get there. Bring lunch or a snack and plan to hangout at the overlook for a while. You'll be glad you did.

Went on a busy Easter weekend and parking was full. We drove to the Morte Lake trail head where the parking lot was empty and took it from there! Worth the view!

Quick jaunt up to see the vast ocean views. A nice steep and distracting activity during a day of travel.
