My Dad and I are planning to hike the Chief this summer. We've been doing short day hikes twice a month.
I'd like to do all the peaks. can you hike them in sucession? How long does it take to do all of them?

thanks

It has been a years since I have hiked the Chief, so I might be out of touch with reality.
I recall this was a little easier than Grouse Grind, still steep, but views are more rewarding, and it took us good part of the day to hike it.
If your short hikes were for a few hours (4~5?) over up-down terrain you should be fine. This is definitely harder than a lighthouse park walk, but quite comparable to something like going to Seymour First/Second pump peaks

If you want to do all 3 peaks it is certainly possible, from first you will have to backtrack approximately 15-20 minutes in order to head up to 2nd. You can hike 2nd and third peak in succession by following 2nd peaks ridge-line.
