Hiked the steep trail to the tower on Wesley Ridge. All of the fallen trees have been cleared off the trail now. Blue bird day with great views at the top, we could clearly see Mt. Baker in Washington. Will be back another day to complete the whole ridge traverse.

Ok.. that was a grind! I would have given it 3/5 but the views were amazing!! So it gets a 4. I started on Quallicum side. First 40 min straight up. Spectacular view.. then the long grind. Lots of fallen trees along the path. Poorly marked in some areas and lightly tread (like a game trail). My gps looked like a child’s drawing in some points as I was off route. Mountain view made everything better. WOW! The descend was tough. Lots of ropes to assist. Dry light scramble. Fresh bear scat in the area dense with ferns and salmon berry. All n all.. a stunning hike and comes with bragging rights. Took me 9 hours total with rest periods at view points. I have a total of 1 km that I was off course (12.65km) and I am an avid “difficult” hiker.

amazing hike. took us 5hrs30mins with stops at the view points. trails are all well marked. coming down the end of it by the trail for Mt Horn get gnarly. lots of ropes to help you down. just take it slow and easy. no where to park a second car at Cathedral Grove as its all blocked off. have a back up for someone who lives in the area to.pick you up and take you back to train track starting points.

Just east of Mt. Wesley the trail is different than the red route on this map. I think this is an old route that is overgrown. The indicated black dotted line on the map appears to be the route.
