While it's a little hard to find (you have to seek out the trailhead) it's well worth it. The trail is well-blazed. We were there on a misty day so our view was somewhat limited, but it was still a great hike through an incredible eco-system. Wish I was back there now. :)

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. There’s not much to see in the way of views until you reach the very... 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 the Hecate Strait ! Also a view south and west to the other mountains in... More

Great hike, some tricky sections but worth it if the weather is cleAr. Make sure you pack a lunch or snack to enjoy at the tip of her nose. Beautiful. Many ages can complete this hike, not "easy" but not too difficult. Take your time and enjoy!

this is a very demanding 2h+ trail consisting in steep wet slopes in a dark forest. quite vertical, slippery, often tricky. however it can be done by an average person with lots of ambition. descending is almost as difficult as the climbing. the views at the top in a clear day are breathtaking. good hiking shoes are a must

This is a must do hike for all visitors on a sunny day. Not for the feint of heart or sedentary folk. Climb is very vertical, with some tricky spots. But my child climbed in sandals at age four, so the average person can do it. Approximate time is three hours round trip.

Really enjoyed the hike. Great views. Was hoping to see more wildlife, but only stumbled on a grouse.

My mom dragged me up this trail! It was definately intense but breathtakingly beautiful in the old growth forest and the views from the top are worth it. Not for the faint of heart :)
