Recommend a 4x4 to make it to the start of the trailhead. We parked our car 2.5 km further down due to a steep and bumpy section that we couldn't get up. This added 400 meter elevation gain (+ an extra 5 km in total). Logging road style hiking almost the whole way, except from a beautiful ridge trail the last 1.5 km.

Awesome hike. Probably moderate. 3.5h round trip from where the trailhead is marked on AllTrails. If I was going to do it again I’d drive further up the FSR (to the end). We took a (very nimble) dog who did it no problem. One section of trail flooded but easily navigated.

OHV/Off-road drivingGreat!

Just came back from upper trail head. I didn't know there was a lower entrance. I drove to to end of the road and walked in from there. The area has been heavily logged, so the road continues further up the mountain. I hiked in for 15 minutes, just to see...will come back in a few weeks to hike to the summit. Not sure what approach Maia Smith took to the mountain, but there are no gates between Buckley Bay and Mount Apps - if coming via Buckley Bay gate (only open weekends 8-4)

Gate closed 3km before trailhead, unfortunately! Not sure if this trail is still open.

First to Review

One way. Drive from Beaver Cr Rd, up CX91 to start point. Hike to the peaks of Mt Apps. Still lots of snow the day we went, so this track probably goes off the trail a bit.
