CommentMy husband and I took our 4 year old for this hike. Took 2 hours total. Not too hard for the little guy and the hidden Teapots were a fun eye-spy game. Perfect for a family hike. not too hard for us beginners. Will for sure go again.

UpsideAn excellent hike regardless of age. Trail in great shape all year round. Nice views in spots. CommentBusy at any time of year but to avoid the crowds, best done in the off season and during the week.

UpsideThis is my get the heart pounding and work those legs beginning of the season hikes. I do this before or after work a couple times a week to try and keep in semi-hiking shape most the year round. Easily accesible and usually someone is on the trail. DownsideFor those looking for a long workout don't do this, I have been able to do it in 35 minutes. CommentCan get fairly busy during the summer as it is right at Cultus lake and lots of noise from boats etc...

UpsideA hike for any person of any age. DownsideMuch too short. CommentAdequate for youngsters but not the hard-core hiker.

UpsideEasy hike, even for younger kids; varied terrain and flora. Not too strenuous a trek! DownsideGets extremely crowded; poor views of anything but the forest. Viewpoint(s) have narrowing fields-of-vision that don't do the area much justice! Some vehicles at the trailhead have been vandalized during the "busy" season. CommentCheck out the tree that was struck by lightning at the first viewpoint! LOTS of mosquitoes in the Spring!

UpsideThis is a hike that flaunts more of the Chilliwack area's beautiful landscape. It isn't very long, but still holds its ground in the area of viewpoints. (Views include Cultus Lake and surrounding mountains) DownsideIt isn't very difficult. (I guess for some people that could be an upside!) CommentThe Cultus Lake area with its surrounding mountains are filled with numerous trails. Having done the trail up to Lindeman Lake, Mt. Thom, and Tea-pot hill I can safely say that hiking in this area is worth your time. It's also very interesting to hear some of the stories on why Teapot Hill got its name.
