This hike was really awesome. It’s a pretty constant uphill the entire way to the look out, but the terrain is very nice. The views are gorgeous. It’s definitely a work out. We tried to do the scramble to the peak, but the trail is a bit difficult to follow, once you pass the tree line, you get onto some pretty loose scree, on a steep slope, that was difficult to negotiate. Also, on the way down we went off trail in one spot, because it was hard to follow. But honestly, the views are worth all the effort.

Absolutely fantastic views from the top! Made the decision to go to the peak on a whim and definitely didn’t regret it. We saw a lynx as we were moving out of the trees towards the rock trail which absolutely made our day! Saw a couple male mountain goats as well but no bears thankfully.

Love loved this hike! The false peak got me- despite the reviews. A great afternoon adventure that will leave you rewarded with awesome views. Not crowded at all. We came down around the mountain and caught up with the trail at the bottom of the scramble but both seem doable.

A moderately challenging hike with persistent elevation gain. Take your time and drink in the scenery! The trail leads through gorgeous forest and is well maintained, but vegetation becomes quite sparse as you ascend: remember to bring sunscreen.

Visitors arriving to the viewing area will be met with jaw-dropping panoramic vistas across the valley floor, as well as the dramatic mountain peaks surrounding.

If you have the energy and agility, scramble up the rocks beyond the lookout hut and journey upwards to the edge of the tree line.

Highly enjoyable, a "must-do" if you are in the area!

Tough climb at times near end ... especially in the heat! Great view from lookout hut!! You'll feel quite rewarded for putting in the effort to this moderate (nearly difficult) hike.

The trail is pretty decent till it tumbles out onto the rocks and scree. At this point you're reaching the most difficult section. The trail can be hard to keep track of in the rocks, and trekking poles are highly recommended! But the views are gorgeous. And it's a quick hike down.

Great views from the top! However, the trail from the overlook to the top is quite the talus fest; very loose and hard to follow. Try to stick to the Cairns as much as you can. Also, the best views are from the summit after the real summit. It takes some effort to get down and back up but it's worth it.

This hike starts off on the same trail as Sherbooke Lake, but splits to the right towards Paget Lookout & Peak. Some long switchbacks till we get to the lookout, and then a scramble to the peak.

A mixture of rain, sun, snow and heavy winds was in store for us when my freinds and I tried this " easy scramble". It was indeed an easy swtich back up to the Lookout, a cabin built in 1944! From there, however, steep slopes with screes covered by thin snow were quite challenging to negotiate. We had planned to do the extention after reaching the peak, but it was too cold up there to continue. Luckily, on the way down, the sky cleared up from time to time and I was able to snap some great shots. Overall, a very pleasant little scramble route with incredible views.
