The Squamish River was flowing fast; some people tried to drift across on pool inflatables. Don't do that. Some people tried to slack line across the cable. They and their packs were dangling above the river; their self-rescue took a long time. Jay, the ferryman, was in the right place at the right time. But other online comments suggest that's not always the case, and cars have been vandalized. This is a nice, steep hike with a pretty lake at the end. But the logistics of getting to the trailhead make it a Not Recommended hike. Also, the trail isn't a trail; it's a route.
