It's a grind all the way up, but totally worth it. It's so lush and green the whole way up with stunning views. The scramble at the end is a little scary!

Great trail with awesome views. Quite steep from the beginning but gets easier after the bench and views are worth it.

A very steep trail, even from the beginning, but if you push all the way to the ridge top summit (past both wooden benches), you'll be rewarded with awesome views of both Fernie and the Three Sisters.
Once you get to the second bench at the ridge top, take the upper route of ~10min light scrambling to summit or the lower to meet snow and gorgeous valley views.
Overall a worthwhile hike that youll be able to feel in your legs for the next day or so :')

This was quite the climb but but well worth it. There's a spectacular 360 view of the mountains at the top and lots of great views of the town of Fernie throughout the top half of the trail. It's very well marked and fairly clear with exception to the last 5 minutes where you have to scramble a bit. Took us 4.5 hrs return with lots of stops to take in the scenery.

I didn't find this trail overly exhausting. The views are spectacular past the half way point and it's impossible to not take photos.

This is actually a seriously strenuous hike. It climbs 1,000m in only 4km, so expect a good workout. Stunning 360 views from the top, where there is a little wooden bench and friendly ground squirrels to relive you of your granola bars.

We parked at the end of Canyon Trail and found the trailhead on the left after a short walk. There's a bench at the top with some amazing views on both sides of the mountain. The last section of the trail has loose rocks and may be trickier for beginner hikers. All and all it's a great hike and we were pooped by the time we got back down.
