This was a very scenic hike! You are in the wilderness a large portion of the time, and moments you are not, you get to see large ski runs that have been carved down the mountain. When you are in the middle of the ski runs you can see for miles! The path is narrow and my group had to hike single file, but it was still an absolutely wonderful experience! I recommend hiking up the mountain and taking this trail towards to gondolas to go back down and save your knees! The last 10 minutes portion of the hike was a bit grueling in the sun so I recommend starting early! Happy hiking!

Great hike. If you want a harder hike and not repeat a section take Ally’s trail to Beaver Lake Trail to the lake then come back and take Royal Elk to either gondola down or walk down to village. Close to 10 miles and all up hill great hike!

Best trail on the mountain. Technical, streams, trees, up and down, not too strenuous and great views of all of BC. Newbies, take the lift up , find trail just down from gondola, and get started. Ends at trail up to braver lake ( shout uphill hike). Have fun.
