Great trail - step up the south face, but beautiful views, and great descent on the north side. Clear views up the Stanch.

Going up and down the rocks was a little scary at times, but such a great hike.

great hike! went up from Goldstream Provincial Carpark, had fun on the rocks, and reached the summit to amazing views. it was a little smoky, but still nice. walked down the rocks from the summit to look over the estuary. we went down the much easier trail route down the back side, and reached Finlayson Arm Road, where we walked for 20 minutes until hitchhiking in the back of a pickup truck. Good Times!

I have hiked this trail twice, once from the backside and the other ascending the front. Both are challenging hikes I thought the front was more rock climbing and the back more trail like. Definitely worth the effort to reach the summit. Bring a pair of binoculars there are some good views. Next time I'm going to park at the Finlayson Arm Rd entrance about 3km further up the road from Goldstream, it's a much less populated hike and I think a more enjoyable hike to the summit.
