If you loop the trail to Miral Heights (Trail BC overlook) and back it will take you about 4.5 hours with an elevation change of 400 meters.
The trail is well groomed and flagged.
There is some scramble involved.
The two people who made the trail are in the process extending the loop to include the Birchback overlook.
