Not to difficult and well worth it when you get to go for a swing

Nice hike, two ways up. Red gate is a fairly easy to moderate double wide trail. The Yellow gate is 1/2km further down Strathcona heights near the end of the road. The Yellow gate is a steep moderate double trail at first then turns into a single trail from the radio tower. The single trail is steep and hard to find at times but amazing views of Shawnigan Lake looking West. Imagine sunsets up there on a clear day are pretty amazing.

Great hike, but steep and Rocky. Swing is the best part with great photos. Takes about 30-40 mins, park down by yellow gate.

Definitely steep but beautiful and short. Be sure to stay on the path though because there are parts that don’t get a lot of sun and the moss can be slippery if you veer off. Views are worth the hike!!

Short but steep with an amazing view at the end.

Not well marked there are two ways up apparently the first is supposed to be easier. Did not find it the one at the end of the road is harder I would probably classify it as a medium trail the climb is well worth it.

This for sure was not an easy trail. Very steep to get up to the swing. Hiked on a hot dry day but fell a couple times coming down, lose gravel on the road. Not the best view from the swing, go to the top of the mountain instead of turning right to the trail and there is a better view.
