Awesome, hidden gem!
Very few people know of this hike, which is what makes it so amazing! No crowds, great scrambles and amazing view from the top, even better than the Chief. People say you get lost very easily, but I think it's really well marked. First half hour you start in the forest, than you go about 20-30 mins on the logging road, and after that you get another hour and a half in the forest going up.
The trail is considered hard due to the fact that at the beginning there are some parts that force you to use arms and legs, but for the rest is very intermediate. Awesome place! The lake isn't anything great, the view of Howe Coast is the highlight!
