I was surprised how long it took to get to this place. We were coming from the Wentworth Falls area. The dirt road is narrow and there are many twists and turns. I would not advise to drive too fast as it is a two-lane road and it is a bit bumpy. It is ok for a regular car if... More

We were really keen to visit Mount Hays and the Tourist Bureau said the road was in a bad state and all in all the road and the viewing area were not maintained and not to go 'cos you couldn't see anything? Has anyone else had this problem?

We drove up to Mount Hays on the bumpy road, but it was worth every bump! The views from the top are spectacular. I wont need to go again, but very glad we didi it.

Just got back from this hike, it was pretty long (about 2 hours up - we ended up getting a ride back down with a friendly family) and there's not much going on view-wise until you get to the top but it was worth it. There are moments when the trees to the side have a gap and you get... More

Directions: From town drive East on 2nd street to McBride (Rt 16 East) then turn right on Wantage toward the fish hatchery. I suggest parking as far up the road as you are comfortable driving. The potholes on the dirt road are massive, so unless it's an SUV or rental car don't drive too far past the fish hatchery. We... More

an attraction, but it is a nice little drive. If you are a hiker it's probably a nice hike as well. I drove, took in the view, and it certainly gives you another perspective of Prince Rupert, but compared to flying a helicopter over the mountains on the way to Kemano, it is average, but still very nice!

First of all it is a long and difficult walk.Summit of Mount Hays is 732 m / 2402 ft. We parked our car at the Oldfield Creek hatchery on Wantage Rd and we took the gravel road, on the way (on the left) you can see an old command post dating from the WW2. It is at least a 10... More
