Access: From Terrace head North on the Nisga'a highway until you hit the South Douglas FSR (if you cross Douglas Creek you've gone too far). Turn right onto the FSR and head up for 6.5kms to the first junction, turn right here and continue for another 2.3kms to the trailhead. Note the road is 2WD friendly but need high clearance. Although 2WD friendly, 4WD is highly recommended in order to reduce speed through rocky steep hills and crossing water bars. Trail: Approx. 2 - 2.5 hours from trailhead to peak. 4 - 4.5 hours total return time. Look at waypoints for descriptions and times along the way. Trail is moderate until the alpine ridge where scrambling is required - difficult sections with steep cliffs!

This was my first ever alpine hike and it did not disappoint. We didn’t make it up to the top but we reached roughly around 1600m elevation. Stunning views all around. My only complaint would be the horseflies as they were quite aggressive. We were swatting them away nearly the entire hike. This annoyance did not change how I felt about the hike and I highly recommend it. Wear good hiking shoes.

This trail was pretty easy as far as the alpine after that the summit is a literal rock scramble and very high, with huge drops on both sides! I don’t Recommend to anyone that does not enjoy heights. Make sure to bring grippy shoes and possibly even gloves. Not for the faint of heart.

It’s a great lookout, but if you don’t have a 4x4 to get to the trailhead you may find yourself walking a bit. The trail itself is overgrown a bit but enough people use it so it’s. It hard to follow. Pretty hard hike if you summit to the top, moderate hike if you don’t.
