Very loose rock, therefore wear supportive shoes and be careful. Did not finish the hike, but still achieved great views and enjoyed a visit to Peachland for treats at Bliss!

Dan and I scrambled straight up and survived to tell the tail but the trail looks awesome and the views of the lake are just as inspiring.

Afternoon hike with my 5 year old. The trail is not too difficult yet not boring by any means. Easy access, beautiful views, totally rewarding for a couple of hours of your time!

Beautiful views! Some loose rocks and sand etc but this hike is easy for all hiking levels.

Got pretty close to a turkey vulture and I think the view is awesome can see so much of the lake.
Without the smoke it would be amazing.
The flag and journal idea should be on many more trails what a great idea.
I’ve hiked at least 2 dozen trails in the last month and this one is good for everyone that enjoys a good hike.

I took the trail running all the way up and running all the way down with a 5 year-old. I would rate it as an easy trail, if you're fit. It's fun with rocks to climb. The view at the top is nice but not spectacular. As far as wildlife goes, I spotted an american goldfinch and from the flag at the top, saw some predator bird surfing on hot air to get higher in the sky.
Fun trail.

Not an easy trail in my mind. Length was not challenging, but a fairly steady incline. And the footing was a bit loose and sandy, so when combined with narrow steep trails I wouldn’t bring anyone here who isn’t very steady on their feet. Ascent wasn’t too challenging but the descent was a bit slippery! Very nice view of the valley when you reach the Canada Flag.

Great climb. My wife forgot her shoes and completed the hike in flip flops and survived.

I agree with others - wouldn’t classify this as an easy hike... probably moderate with some rocky sections to scramble over.

Was a workout. I did not consider it easy at all. Unless this trail is different from the ascent I did on pincushion.

Visiting from the west coast and was looking for an easy hike with a great view. The view didn't disappoint, but it’s one that you can see the entire trek up, so no Wow! moment when reaching the top. I wouldn't classify this as an easy hike. Elevation and distance were fine, but the trail is challenging in areas and not maintained (ie: steps have eroded, scrambling over boulders) There was a lot of loose rock that made the first portion of the trail a bit sketchy. I had really good hikers on and took a tumble coming down. This hike should be rated moderate in my opinion.

Aug 10, 2017: Took the family (12 & 17 yrs old kids) & there was some challenging sections but totally worth the summit, the picture with the Canadian Flag & signing the log book! Going down was harder & we slipped a few times on the gravel in the steep areas. Great leg workout & bring water!!!
I would rate this as Moderate level, there are areas that were not easy where you have to climb up rocks.
It took us 3 hours total. That includes the 30 mins at the summit hanging out. We took it a little slower going up.

stellar lakeviews from the top but the loose terrain makes it not as fun on the way down.

Fantastic hike and great view! Our 3 year old followed and got the right amount of adventure up to the flag...

This was a nice hike for me and my daughter just the right amount distance and adversity.

I was looking for a quick hike to break up my log drive from Seattle to Banff. This one was super convenient and challenging enough to wear me out. There were a few other people but not crowded. Easy parking. Safe area

This certainly is not what I would personally call an easy hike. Moderate for sure, uneven rocky inclines, not for someone just wanting a stroll. However beautiful views and a great trail.
