Great trail! Very nice views from the top. Intense workout for novice hikers.

An enjoyable hike, with a couple of nice lookouts, that we accomplished in about 2.5hrs including time for photographs and a snack. The blackflies were bad, especially near the fire tower.

First km straight up the escarpment then relatively flat from there. About 5 km from parking lot to an SOS cabin complete with picnic tables, wood stove and outdoor facilities. Cabin was down a gravel road past the fire lookout tower. Good hike - but black flies were insane so dress appropriately. Some trails closed due to seasonal floods.

Loved this hike! More of a challenge than I expected. Can't wait to go back :)

Great trail close to the city. Good training for bigger climbs. Nice views on the way up. Fire tower at the top. Good mix of terrain. Great for trail running. Moderate difficulty.

Really enjoyed the hike. I was looking for something that was a bit more challenging than Pink Lake or King Mountain - this def was it. Good workout.

Really good trail! Only took us about 2 hours to do the whole thing. I didn't find it too challenging but I would not recommend this to anyone who can't handle hills or climbing rocks.

Challenging trail with beautiful views. Beautiful in the spring with all the waterfalls. Will definitely do it again maybe in tha fall with all the colours.
