A lot of elevation, and the trail was much longer than the map. I had 23.6 km there and back. Fantastic panoramic views of backcountry, and we got to see a black bear at 15ft. Amazing hike; definitely need the right gear with experience. And take lots of water.

A lot of elevation and scrambling after the junction with the lower Norvan Falls Trail, with incredible panoramic views at the summit. My recording was 25 km and 1339 m elevation gain. Plan for 10 hours if you want to enjoy the views and visit the lake. Bring more water and food than you think you need and while I normally don’t use them I found hiking poles useful for steep areas.

Loved it but was much farther than it says on here. We did have to park at the second parking lot which added a bit but it was 13.2 to get to the peak totalling close at 27km not the above quoted 18.9 - there were 6 of us that were all tracking.

beautiful view once you are on the top of the mountain, however this hike was a lot harder than we expected.
from beginning of the trail to the top is definitely longer than posted here. roughly 25km round trip including a small detour to the Norvan fall (very worth it!). Make sure you pack lots of water as it's a very long hike.

Great fall hike. Difficult sections and decent but well worth it. Very heavily marked.

Very nice view at the top, but super long and difficult hike. Not a lot to see on the way up. Gate closes at 9pm sharp. This hike took a lot longer than I expected. Glad I did it, but won't be rushing back here anytime soon.

I did this as a day hike on Aug 19th, 2017. We parked at the Lower Seymour Conservative Reserve and hiked into Lynn Headwaters park as the access road has been closed since 2016. It took us 9 and a half hours in total, with a 20 minute lunch break and a few short snack breaks on the way up. The hike itself was fantastic, especially once we were on the coliseum trail. In total, we saw 6 other people over the course of 6 hours, so it feels really remote. It makes for a very long day hike, so I'd recommend an early start if you are planning it. The views are pretty tame until you get into the alpine, where it opens up into a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding mountains. Nothing too technical, just quite steep for a long time and a lot of walking for one day. Definitely recommend this one!

gps trail is incomplete and lacks the last kilometer to summit - no clear markers, be prepared. btw gate is open 7am-9pm

September 05, 2015. Started at 7:15AM (Had to park outside the gate as it doesn't open until 9:00AM). 6.5hrs up and 4.5hrs down. A little cloudy and windy at the top but well worth it.

Quite challenging. Took us 9-10 hours from the far parking lot. There was a glacier lake at the top to fill up on water (borrowed someone's filter) otherwise 3L went fast.
