Steep, good work out. Lots of built steps. One place with chains. After a summer of doing it 5 days a week, A guy coming down I said he had made it to the top in 32 minutes, a new record for him.

Trail is in great shape. Good idea with bathroom. Bad idea having a sign encouraging people to toss rocks from the lookout.

Awesome hike. Steep pretty much the whole way, and there are a couple of sections with steep stairs. View is great. Even on a cloudy day I still saw the whole town of Hope. Lots of wildlife, too. Definitely a great cardio workout. Will definitely come back!

good trail. lots of bench stops and shade. man built stairs railings and chains for those who need a little help up. make sure you make it to the rock slide at the top. Don't stop at the first look out not that good. rock slide views are WAY better and there's an outhouse at the top lol.

Wunderbare Aussicht Wanderung jedoch nicht sehr angenehm: ca. 500 Höhenmeter im Wald rauf und dann wieder runter ohne gerade Streckenabschnitte

Climbed it with my six year old twins. Well maintained trail that’s easy to follow. Not too many views on the way up but great forest walk. Nice view at the top, worth the trek up. Significant elevation gain over a relatively short distance, steep at times.

This hike has a well marked trail. The terrain gets steep and quite rocky in some areas. The elevation changes quite rapidly but it’s worth it for the view at the top! The pictures really don’t do justice, you’re able to soak up the beautiful view of the city of Hope and surrounding valley. While sitting on some wooden benches in a rock fall. It’s a really unique place and would go back again in a heart beat!

Lovely hike through the forest. It’s closer to 4.6k round trip though. Beautiful view and doable as a family (with our 9 year old). Plenty of benches to take breaks along the way.

Quite steep and at times it felt like I should be asking "are we there yet" but once you're at the top the view is perfect. Nice benches to sit and enjoy the view.

Steep, rocky, well maintained and a view that makes the climb well worth it. Leave your flip flops at home though.

Nice trail, well kept. A bit of snow and ice near the lookout. Amazing view of hope and the surrounding mountains.

Cute switch backs and great view of Hope ! The trails are starting to ice up a tad but easily done in regular shoes/boots yet.

The view is worth the steep climb. A good mix of terrain and cut backs. The stairs are a bit tall to climb but the view is absolutely stunning!

This in one of the better roads to drive, especially if you have a motorbike. But my suggestion would be to go mid week or super early on a weekend. The road gets super busy and lots of it is single lane.
