The trailhead is well marked. Begin by hiking down a well marked trail to the bottom of the valley and across a creek. From the other side of the creek you walk uphill steadily till you hit an old deactivated FSR to the plaque. Users have reported that the road to the trailhead requires 4WD and good ground clearance.

completed this Saturday Oct 24th. anow at the base of the trail, and a good foot at the top. trail is snowy and muddy. crampons definitely required. this trail is seriously overgrown and 2/3rds of it are spent bent in half ducking under branches. my back did not appreciate it. other then that pretty mild incline until the end. not a ton of great views until you get out of the trees.

High clearance 4WD preferred on FSR approach road due to water bars. Maintained trail. Muddy patches. After creek bridge follows gently sloping old logging road up to 1280m elevation. Easy to follow trail which is flagged. Spectacular views on a clear day. Today 2” of fresh snow above 1450 m elevation.

Completed this as a solo hike on October 2nd,2020 in approximately 2hrs15mins to the top. Ugly trail (overgrown and muddy in places) through a forest, fantastic views at the top!! Lots of sources for water refill. No bugs at the top. No one else on the trail. Need high clearance to get to the head of the trail. I made it up with my 2012 Kia Sportage. I would rate this hike as moderate despite the elevation gain as it’s pretty mild and nothing technical about it.

LEAVE NO TRACE!! Banana peel and whole grapes on vine do NOT belong in the mountain. Tuck empty water bottle and cliff bar wrapper well within your pack so they don't fall out. Slesse is looking misty today with light snow from yesterday. 10+ deep water bars on FSR is no joke, hardest task of the day. Trail is super muddy, but bridges are in great condition.

Absolutely beautiful well marked trail. I’m a beginner and I pushed through with my good friend! The view was amazing! Must have 4x4 to make it to start of trail head.

The road to get there is really hard for people without 4x4 to go. We had to park midway and start early. The trail is worth going. Two waters would be enough because you can fill it at the top with Glacier water.

One of my favourite hike. Lots of bugs that spray bugs helps a lot. The hike is 16km back. It took us 4 hours for 8km up. I’m hoping they will update the site.

Beautiful intermediate hike. Gradual incline through forested trail. Well marked easy to follow trail. A bit bushy and overgrown in sections, some muddy parts. Overall stunning mountain view points during the hike and 360 degree mountains at the top! Loved this hike! AWD and high clearance or 4x4 a must to reach trail head. 16km not 13km

Made the drive up in my Subaru Forester but even being super careful, I bottomed out twice. The hike gets steep near the top but otherwise a nice steady incline. We were 8 women: lots of stops for water, snacks, and photos. Took us 4 hours up at a leisurely pace. Spent 2 hours at the top enjoying the amazing weather, the stunning 360 degree views, and exploring the rocky area beyond the propeller. This is a new favourite. Worth the effort if you can get up the road.

My favourite hike this year! It was surreal knowing the history of the place and it’s beauty. It was amazing! Definitely not 13.5 km though. More like 19.5 km out and back.

Pretty easy going trail; super over grown but beautiful none the less. Really rough road going up - i did it in a 2008 Hyundai sante fe .. even going slow and me knowing how to drive FSR roads, it was still sketchy and scrapped the bottom a few times.
