Really satisfying hike with a mix of challenging and easy sections. We found 3 viewpoints on the ridge the rest seemed to be overgrown.
Bring plenty of water and hiking polls if you have them.
I wouldn't recommend this walk if you are unfit or have small kids.

Did this in July, some great views, saw a black bear in the trail but he wasn’t interested in us.

This is quite a lovely hike - intermediate level. Not all the vistas are marked and at most the trees have grown up. However there's at least 2 - 3 really good lookouts. The trail is not too smoothed out. :)

If you're doing it in warm weather bring your swim wear as a dip in the lake at north beach is GREAT after most of the hike is done. There's still the length of the lake to walk back where you can go for a swim at South Beach too should you choose to do so.

Nice views I'd make sure your ready for this trail. Do Buntzen Lake trail couple of times before you hit this trail.

Great view at one lookout point. I thought the signs were too small and not clear enough!

14k hike, takes us 4 hours. First 3k almost straight up a mountain (switchbacks) but then it gets easier for a while with a steep decline when closing in on buntzen lake. Nice scenery at the vistas. Not a hike to do alone, quite remote in areas. Hiking shoes/boots a must. Lots of water and snacks. Be bear-aware (bear droppings common) but rarely see large wildlife when hiking these trails. Really enjoy this hike :)

Really enjoyed this hike! The first 2 km or so is pretty vertical and gets your heart going. From there it meanders up and down and opens up once in awhile for some crazy views. The third vista has the largest sitting area with the best view so you might want to aim to have lunch there. I'd recommend you bring lots of water as there aren't any creeks along the way.

If you plan to do the loop and come back down along the Buntzen Lake trail, you might want to bring a swim suit. There are some beautiful spots right off the trail, some much less pond scummy than others. My dogs have never been happier to see a lake, I was super jealous :)

I'd also suggest parking in the Overflow/Equestrian parking lot, as it's much closer to the trailhead than the main parking lot. You'll seen signs for it first as you drive into the park along Sunnyside.

Amazing hike with great views. Start the trail at the floating bridge. I went the opposite way and some of the steep downhill terrain might be too much for some people. Bring lots of water and a snack, the hike takes 3-7 hours depending on your fitness level. I did it in 4:30 mins and I'm in fairly good shape. The views of the Indian arm and downtown Van are worth it.
