I would say an easy start...moderate hike with some very steep areas....be sure of your feet....rolled on rocks a few times... beautiful view once you’re at the top!

While I personally probably wouldn’t rate this hike as ‘easy’, it sure was beautiful. The trail was steep, but very well maintained, and the view at the top makes the climb worth it.

This trail is an absolute must if you are in Nelson for more than one day. The first time up always kicks your ass but the views are worth it and everyone is super friendly. It will likely become a tradition for future trips to Nelson.

Highly recommend this hike for a killer view looking across Kootenay Lake towards Nelson, especially during September and October when the trees are changing colour. If you have the extra time, then continue further to the flag pole!

Did this hike in the evening to go up and watch the fireworks in Canada day. Hiked down in the dark. Overall it was somewhat difficult but amazing views

I am out of shape, so this trail was quite challenging. probably a mile of hiking up, up, up. The view at the top was worth it though. This trail would probably take most people about an hour to hike up and half an hour to get down. I took about 1.5 hours hiking up and half an hour to get down.
