Super steep hike! I recommend poles for the way down to save your knees (and keep you from tumbling down the mountain!).
Around a third to half of the way in there is a beautiful view point that's perfect for a lunch break.
The trail sikes you out a few times as there are a lot of great viewpoints where you think you have reached the end but you need to keep going up the ridge to summit Harvey! Highly recommend checking your gps to make sure you get all the way up. Quite a bit of scrambling/climbing needed.
Also, bring layers as the weather changes rapidly and can get quite cold.
Trail had awesome views of Howe Sound and the Lions if it's not too cloudy.

End of June 2018.
Incredible! The elevation was great, the trail well marked (once we figured out to follow the road all the way) and the views were outstanding!
There was still some snow but very manageable even without poles.

Very steep trail, including a scrambled for the last ~100m elevation, but well worth the view. Bring plenty of water.

Hard but so worth it. Make sure you go all the way to the top for a sweet 360 view! took me ~5 hours from the car to the top and back to the car but it was my first hike of the year so I was pretty out of shape. Boots are a must, the loose gravel can be slippery. I brought 2L of water and drank all of it.

Tough stuff but very much worth it. The climb is steep making it a double whammy for getting up there and coming down. 30deg C the day we hiked didn't help.. but there weren't many people on this one and the view is unbeatable!

Great trail, April 2 2017. To reach the summit, you need at least crampons and poles (if you don't want to walk on all fours). Some people have snowshoes to hike a part on the top and it looks easier to them because the snow collapse many times. Beautiful view if you have the chance to see the sky without clouds!

Pretty tough hike. Took about 2 hours 15 mins from the gate to the top. The last half is quite steep and trail is not obvious so keep an eye out for the orange markers. Amazing view at the top of Howe Sound and The Lions.
