Very rugged trail. Need to do a little rock climbing. Took us 4 hours to complete. It'd little steep do decided to take gondola down. Amazing views of Howe sound. And upper waterfall.

The trail is now called Sea to sky summit trail.

Nice water falls. Walked right to the falls. Quite a bit more powerful then expected

Completed this one June 7, 2016 pretty awesome rugged trail. I suggest parking in The Shannon Falls parking lot and starting your hike from there so you can visit B.C.'s third largest waterfall :) The trail is very steep almost all the way up with occasional views of Howe Sound and Upper Shannon Falls. There's some sections with rope to help pull you up over the tricky bits and a restraunt at the top to reward yourself with a cold one for all your hard work! You could hike down if your super ambitious but we went with the gondola ride down it's 10$ per person be sure to bring cash. All in all a great hike with a well marked but very rugged trail!
