Very hard Trail Going up Pinecone Burke mountain park both for hiker's and mountain biker's suggestion's bring lots of water, if going in the summer time and also watch out for bears, cougars and possible coyotes.
Follow Coast Meridan Rd to the very top, take a right at harper Rd follow Harper Rd 'till you hit the gun club there should be a gate to the right of the gun club and you should be able to get past the gate and follow the trail's.

Commenti did this hike years ago ('94ish) and got lost. It was also very, very hard for kids. I wanna go back as an adult though - hoping I'll whine a lot less :)

UpsideIf you intend to go to the summit from this route then you'll have an amazing hike. DownsideIf you're only going for a workout then some areas will leave you waiting for the next "grind", however, this trail still has its steep points and overall is a good workout. CommentFrom the gun range, head up the trail and make your second left. You'll reach a fork in the road and one will head upwards and the other will be almost on flat ground, head along the left path (flat ground) and you'll reach a sign seeing if you wish to go to the "Burke Summit". Head along this trail and follow it the whole way. You'll reach a faded out small sign with one of the options being the "falls crossing" path.. take this path and with the signs this should take you to the top. We went to dennnet lake from this path, however, be aware that the decline from the marker indicating the path to dennitt lake is incredibly steep. On a nice day this route is gorgeous and you pass Lily pad lake and Hourglass lake on the way which are both good sites. Just under 6 hours round trip with 4 stops heading up just for a sip of water. **Few parts are quite wet, bring waterproof boots**

UpsideClose to home, well established trails DownsideThere's a lot of users, and a lot of unmarked trails so ensure you're paying attention to which trail you're on. CommentMt Burke was a pretty quick hike (1hr Return) from the gun club route, with just a little bushwhacking to cross Partington Creek.
