Nice out and back trail. Lake is a nice view but very wet at the edge so hard to get a good view of it without getting wet feet. Was a few muddy spots but was good conditions for the most part

This is a great moderate hike. Mostly shaded by trees with a couple open spots. It’s quite muddy at this time so I would make sure you are comfortable with going off the path into the bush to get around large mud puddles. The trail isn’t super clearly marked so I’d sure to not go too far from the path. There is a small lake at the end, a little bit swampy. The trail looks like it needs to be cleared as there are quite a few trees down but it’s manageable to jump over or walk around them. Overall a good hike though.

Nice off-leash trail for dogs. Easy rolling trail, but very muddy right now.

It is pretty difficult to get to the top of sleeping giant. It is almost 8 km easy walk around 3 km difficult high slope hike and you should back the same km. There is no cell phone signal and you defiantly need enough water depend of the weather. But after all you will see unbelievable look out from the top.
