Quite steep hill, well maintained. We went about 1 hour before sunset, very beautiful to overlook the light change in garden bay and hotel lake.

HikingGreat!

Short, moderately steep hike. 25 minutes up, 20 minutes down. Beautiful views at the top with lots of places to sit and eat a snack. Limited parking but we managed to get a spot.

Short, moderately steep hike. A bit overcast during summit but the clouds were high enough not to impact the beautiful views of Hotel Lake, Mount Daniel and all the small coves. Enjoyed munching on some snacks while watching all the boat traffic below. Recommend this hike for anyone travelling through the Pender Harbour area.

This was a bit tough for a few minutes going up the hill but the hike itself was super short. Up and down in 40 minutes or so!

Loved it. Short and steep - about 20mins to the top. Amazing views. When you get to the peak keep going East a bit more down to the best view of hotel lake and mount Daniel. We talked to some locals the day before who told us instead of going back down the original trail, keep walking south-west towards the island and you will see a trail that goes down the south side of the mountain. Do it! Ocean views the whole way, and no more difficult than coming down the original way. We popped out on Irvine’s landing road and 15min walk along the water back to the car.

One of my favourite local hikes, I would not call it easy though. The view is spectacular and it’s a beautiful walk up. Very steep and short.

Time-to-payoff is great. Short hike, massive views, not too busy. Manageable for young kids.

Some steep sections on a well marked path. I advise older walkers to take a stick from the side of the entrance - it helps on the descent! View from the top well worth the effort.

I wouldn’t go as far as calling this an easy walk in the trees as someone below did hahah, but it really isn’t a difficult hike fitness wise at all (and I did it with arthritis, and recovering from a post surgery infection!). Going slowly, it took me half an hour up, and half an hour down - those with bad knees like myself might struggle a bit on the way down, as it is steep and there are rocks and roots. The view from the top is gorgeous, and you can wander around a little for a different view, but given the difficulty it gave my knees coming down, I wasn’t so impressed by the views that I would do it again! Pack some water and food and make it a nice little picnic stop :) I got there early and there were no cars in the lot (there’s only room for about four; the rest park on the road) but by the time I got back a couple of hours later, there would have been at least ten cars there!

A very nice view of all the area around Madeira park will be your reward after this easy walk in the trees.
