Ascent Trip Report

Most of the hiking trail is a nice and well-maintained path in the woods. The final stretch is a fun little hike on solid granite with fixed ladders and chains as aids. The view of Squamish Valley below is spectacular. Peaks 2 and 3 are a little higher, but flatter, requiring no fixed ladders or chains. This is one of the most popular day hikes around Vancouver, and for a very good reason.
