Good trail, bit of over growth. Would suggest bug spray if you plan on stopping when moving they don’t seem to bother you. Clean trail no garbage found when hiking *thumbs up*

A great challenge. Getting to the lake was the easy part, talk about some step sections. Would almost like to say it was worth it but the view point is obstructed with plenty of tree. The way down was not as easy as I thought.

Now sitting at home... man my feet are sore!

Good one for a challenge, going downhill is hard on knees as usual for oldies.

A lot of overgrowth at the start of the trail...but it is early in the season and I'm sure that'll change. A few people complained that the trail wasn't marked very well but we had no problem. Just be aware and look for the orange tags on the trees. Chadsey lake has absolutely beautiful. We stopped here to have a snack before heading up to the peak. The hike to the peak/eastern lookout starts and goes around the north side of the lake. The app tried to direct us to the south side but that trail is now decommissioned. The hike to the peak is a few rugged switchbacks. It's definitely a grind but worth the view of The Fraser Valley.

I back into Sumas Mountain. I love hiking in it with my dog.

Didn't go the whole way - got to the lookout point and turned back, took about 2hrs total. Best to hike in smaller groups (i.e. pairs) because the trail is narrow and single-file most of the way.

Completed in late October. Poorly marked. Trails were super confusing and honestly wasn't sure where the top ever was. It was one of the most confusing hikes I've done yet. Wasn't even a ton of snow. Just no clear markings anywhere and even less when you got near the top.

A nice hike up from the trailhead to the Eastern Lookout. It took us about 4 hrs (2 up and 2 down) and we were hustling because the sun was going down. We did the last 30-40 minutes on headlamps and I'm thankful for whoever put up the reflective trail markets on the trees (orange/white). Saw a few others going up and down and even some people fishing at Chadsey Lake. My GPS clocked the whole trip at 12.3 km.

Great hike! For sure a good work out. Chadsey lake at the top was beautiful!

I hiked the trail with my scout group. Not only did we hike to Chadsy Lake ,but we camped there too. It was a blast and the scenery was amazing. Although I wanted to, I never ended up swimming in the lake, but I'm sure that would also have been a blast. Can't wait to go again.
