Awesome hike. Haven’t been in a year. Steep going up as usual. Snow at the 3/4 mark. Can be slick & slippery. View was nice but cold still at upper elevations. Ran across 2’groups going down. Ready to try Dennett in summer. But the view lookout is a good workout. 1hr and a half going up. An hour or less back down.

Lovely hike, 1:20 up, 50 down. Muddy in places but well worth packing a lunch and enjoying the view

Hiked in the morning to arrive at the look out by noon. View was well worth the hike.

A grind, but a lovely little lake in the bowl of Burke Mountain. Flattens out near the top with a short drop to the lake.

Hiked to the lookout yesterday, March 19, sunny, beautiful, 35 ° C in the sun! Yup that's what the thermometer said. Still enough snow on the trail to make it challenging places

Great hike that gives you a good little workout. Fairly steady uphill climb the whole way but lots of changing terrain and well marked so it doesn’t feel like you’re just grinding away. There was still too much snow up top to get to the lakes so I’ll be back later on in the year to get the view! Took me almost 2 hours to get up and just under an hour to come down. Definitely need hiking boots and wished I would’ve brought my hiking sticks.

From the road you want the trail on the left that has a white marker that says “12” on it - park & walk up there and you’ll find signs to guide you. Definitely need waterproof hiking boots - lots of loose ruble, pinecones and snow up top (lots of it). Plus, it requires walking through some creeks and muddy spots. The snow up top was quite deep and coming down was a bit slippy, so you need to be careful of where you’re stepping. Hiking to the lake was generally all up hill with fairly consistent markers, but closer to the top it splits into different trails so pay close attention to signs that indicate which trail you’re on (you want the one that has the “M” on it).

Unbelievable view from the lookout. Used snow shoes for the first time near the top and it was lots of fun. Fell down a lot coming back down in the snow (I’m relatively inexperienced) but it was super rewarding and an all around great experience. Took me almost 4 hours up at a leisurely pace and 1.5 down.
