Steady uphill ascent on a well marked trail. It is generally in good shape and well maintained. A couple of slick spots on the way down since it was wet. Views are outstanding. A bit of snow on top and pretty busy the day we went. Oct 15 2017.

Well marked trail, steep in many parts but the views are spectacular from both viewpoints. Highly recommend it.

One of the best views you'll get of the Fraser valley, but definitely a hard trek for moderate hikers.

Not too busy trail which is a good thing.
I don't think this is for beginners. Make sure you got a enough water and like everyone else is saying last part is bit challenging but worth it for spectacular view.

Road in is a combination of paved and gravel but no need for a 4x4. Well marked steep trail that levels out after the view point. Make sure to not turn around at first view point of Chilliwack. Continue for 5 minutes through the bush to a great view of wild flower covered meadows and Mtn Baker. Can easily continue for another 5+ km to the peak of Thurston mountain.

A little dull to start, but sure picks it up by the halfway point. The final third is a pretty good challenge. Spectacular views.

Great workout and cardio, like that it gets gradually steeper towards the top. Went up on July 17 and it was so hazy at the top from all the forest fire smoke that you could barely see Mount baker! Still worth the trek up there though.

Great workout! Coming back down is made more difficult by the terrain. Took far longer than we anticipated based on the distance. Cliff side route from the first lookout to the second lookout is not good for kids... take the inland path.
