This is an incredible hiking trail. Depending on the season, there are thousands of gorgeous wildflowers scattering the mountainside. The 360 degree view at the top is mind blowing. Lakes and peaks in every direction. 4x4 and vehicle clearance would be advised to get to the trailhead!

Good day. Took my parents who don't hike too much out. quite foggy and rainy but we knew that was coming. Drive to the trailhead was cool, made a 6wrong turn but it was still a nice drive. Had to turnaround as my Dad needed to get home to negotiate a real estate deal. Will come back to check out the actual firelookout soon.

Sept. 27, 2020 Broke trail in 1.5 ft of fresh snow (there was no snow at the top 6 days ago). Route finding was difficult and the rocky/grassy terrain was slippery. We decided not to do the final steep scramble to the summit with our dogs. The views were gorgeous and constantly changing with the fog lifting and settling. This is a trail we'll definitely do again. The FSR is deactivated. We made it up in a mid-clearance 4x4 SUV but it was sketchy on a couple of the rough water bars.

Agree with many other reviews: 4x4 and vehicle clearance would be advised! Although did see an SUV at the trailhead so it's possible - which is surprising as a lot of the run-off ditches were deep. Hiked the Twin Lakes route on the weekend, absolutely stunning. 5 hour round trip with at least an hour for lunch and short breaks. Some of the trail between the lakes is a little overgrown, just keep an eye out for orange tape markers. I'd recommend heading to www.shuswaptrails.com and saving the road directions to the trailhead, very helpful! https://shuswaptrails.com/trails.php?area=0&id=18

HikingBugsGreat!Rocky

Amazing hike to the peak. The wild flowers are gorgeous right now. Road is rough, you need high clearance for sure, and take care when driving as it is narrow with a few blind corners. I agree with other posts, if you are going to stay up at the top over night, there should be a way for other people to know before heading up. A bit buggy, especially at the trail head.

Absolutely incredible hiking trail. There are thousands of gorgeous wildflowers right now scattering the mountainside. The 360 degree view at the top was mind blowing. Lakes and peaks in every direction. Sat on the roof of the lookout for lunch. Very heavily trafficked this weekend. Saw at least 30 other people.

Beautiful hike. Well worth the trek up there! Roads are pretty haggard so you'll need a vehicle with clearance and 4x4, but definitely one of the most scenic views I've encountered. If you want to see what you can look forward to, here is 4k view of the peak and fire lookout! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdRTqN-j_Dc

Hiked to the fire-watch cabin with my son & dog. Caught the sunset and full moon rise, stayed the night and caught the sunrise in the AM.

HikingBugsGreat!Scramble

Great trail, only a few trees down and easy to climb over. There are barely any flat sections on this trail and lots of horseflies but the views were spectacular. We started too late in the day driving from Kelowna and it was scorching hot (not much shade above tree line) so highly recommend a very early start. You need 4wd, a spare tire, and some decent clearance to drive up there as two vehicles at the top had flat tires. There is an outhouse at the base of the trail and plenty of water on the way up but not in the last 500 m or so. Water tastes amazing bring your filter!
