Well marked hike. Took us 4 hours return to do it. Road is a little bumpy to access the hike. Definitely a scramble to the viewpoint at the top but well worth those incredible views.

This well-marked trail has a lot of blow down which requires some maneuvering. There’s also many bends and turns in the trail where it has been redirected due to obstacles. I found the last part of the trail to be the steepest and most challenging....More

Obvious time and effort put in to create a somewhat safe trail to the peak area. Once up there in the open high ground you get a fine view down on Skidegate inlet and Queen Charlotte all the way out to Sandspit and beyond into...More
