This is a good hike but it's uphill most of the way. The view at the top is worth it, though. On a clear day if would be fantastic but we were on a cloudy day so it was only so-so.

I wouldn't call myself a hiker by any stretch... The hike was roughly 45 minutes one way and although there were areas where I needed to take a few deep breaths... It's still easy enough for me to not be sore the next day. If...More

This trail is relatively short but a steep climb up. However the view at the top is spectacular. It would be a nice spot to picnic and someone has thoughtfully constructed a rustic log bench

Parking is very limited only a tiny spot maybe 6 cars. Quite steep going up but take it slow and it is worth it.

We're mid-sixties, regular walkers with some hiking experience. One asthmatic. We churned our way up this steep climb in about 45 minutes. Others' claims of 30 minutes seem reasonable. Do wear good shoes. A stick would be good, but many were available at the start...More

The climb to the top of the hill is easy to moderate but, suitable walking shoes are needed, ie., no flip flops as the trail is natural (not manicured) and very steep in places. The view is mainly south and west over the entrance to...More

After half an hour hiking up the steep trail to the top, you will be greeted by the spectacular view of Pender Harbour. You can't beat that view. Wear some comfy and slip-proof shoes and bring ample water and snacks.

Me again...sorry, didn't say anything about the elevation. The Sunshine Coast Trails website says it's about 220 meters and the hiking trail is about 3/4 km.
