Did this trail in January, there was a few inches of snow on the terrain almost the whole hike. Great views. The majority of it was repetitive steep climbs and descents for the length of it, we then hiked down and did the way back on the flat trail which was about another 7k. Took us about 7 hours total with lots of stops and slowed down by the snow and weather. Can be hard on the body, but a good challenge!

I've done many of the trails... North Granite Ridge as well as Admiral Lake, Gibraltar Rock and Bayer Lake Loops. It's a challenging trail system with some spectacular views of the area from numerous look offs along the trail.

Did a 9km loop around this trail, it has some nice lookouts & it wasn't very busy when I did it. I would go back
