Park at the historical graveyard and cross over the highway to the trailhead. This is a steep forest hike up to a giant boulder area with lots of caves. Some great views over the Fraser River and Yale and the caves are easily accessed.

This trail definitely gives you good work out. Some spectacular views on the way. When I was here on a Sunday in august, I was surprised to find out that the only one on the trail! It was very serene.

hiked up here on August long weekend and it's a great climb up to the top. fantastic view spots at the top, and the trail winds through a beautiful forest. Definitely a steady climb, good amount of switchback but a great work out.

Did this last year. There is a lot of uphill on this trail and some spots were you don't want to get off the trail or you could roll down steep hills for a long way. I also concur that this shouldn't quite be marked as easy, it's a lower level intermediate. Beautiful views on the way up. The caves at the top are fairly small, but there are still multiple levels which makes it interesting and fun. A few small squeezes that can be done too. Lots of fun for kids. I'm very interested to know how the caves were formed at the top of a hill.

If you want to do a quick hike head up to the first viewpoint.

A nice little trail and lovely views. the "caves" weren't particularly interesting to me but I would still recommend the trail.

This trail is rated as Easy and perhaps I'm not in the best shape... but this trail is steep enough to be rated moderate. We turned around after 3km so perhaps the best part is in the last 2km. The setting is quite lovely with pretty good peek-a-boo views. But the constant climbing upwards made this trail more of a chore than it should have been.

Took a few passes to find the trailhead. Parked on the road by the cemetery. Trail was very overgrown for first 20-30 minutes, but then better. Trail gets narrow on some switchbacks. Great view toward the top.
