Amazing steep but clear trail with a super nice but accessible scramble before the lake. Sleeping at the top was an AMAZING experience. Went on June 25 and it was still freezing at night so bring a warm sleeping bag or sleep in the hut!

It's totally worth the climb. By far the hardest hike I have ever done. Would forsure rate this extra hard if possible.

I wouldn't say this is a moderate trail, it is hard. It took us 4 hrs up and 3 back. Bring plenty of water and bug spray.

The trail is marked well, but you are climbing up the whole time. It can be done in a day, but honestly if I were to do it again, I would stay the night and take more time.

Amazing hike! My favorite so far. 3 hours up with lots of water and picture breaks, 2.5 down. Well marked! Once you get up there make sure you hike down to the lake and go for a dip! So refreshing! Bring Off as there are lots of mosquitoes but I covered myself in Off and only got one bike. Used 2 liters of water. It's pretty hard going up at times. I do the Grouse Grind on a regular and my heart was beating pretty good but easily doable for a relatively fit person. Definitely felt my knees and IT band on the way down but nothing compared to coming down Black Tusk, you don't need walking sticks if you have good knees.
