May 17/17. Me and my 13 year old son did this hike for the first time, the last 30 mins. Up is covered in snow and very slippery, no view as it was too foggy, but I will do this hike again.

April 22 - made it to the first viewpoint. (the stairs) The steep ascent in the last section before the lookout was still hard pack snow and ice on the trail. Beyond there snow covered. I did not have microspikes or poles but would have continued if I did. Would suggest that this is intermediate. Would do again later in the season.

I have done this trail many times and would rate it as moderate. Cannot figure out why it is rated difficult on AllTrails because it is not. Yes, you have to be in good shape but it is not hard. Hard would be something like Crown Mountain.

Hard packed snow from winter hikers present in spring, bring spikes! Beautiful transition from rain to snow along trail

Certainly not an easy hike but also not too difficult. Steady climb on a good trail. A couple of steepish spots but nothing dangerous. Lots of older folks up there. On a clear day, spectacular views of the Fraser Valley from Mission to Harrison Hot Springs. When the wildflowers are out, it's so pretty up there.
