UpsideWe did this in Feb so no ticks were to be seen. We also had the entire mountain to ourselves. Great workout, some great views from the top. The trail itself is lots of fun and very beautiful, even in the rain. DownsideSome dog poop in the middle of the trail (pick up please!). Going down is hard if you don't have good traction on your shoes and when it's rainy. CommentThe very top of the trail has alot of downed trees so watch out for those. It's not hard to follow the trail though it is quite relentlessly steep so wear good shoes. We did it in 3 hours 10 mins with a good 15min break at the top (we weren't going fast at all). Totally fine with a good climbing dog (our pointer was running up and down the mountain chasing sticks) but a smaller dog might need a bit of help with the rope sections.

UpsideGreat difficult terrain, it just goes straight up from the road with no intro at all. The scenery is pleasant and the trail is easy to follow. I love a challenge though and this was some great cardio. DownsideComing back down was a bit of a pain due to the slippery rocks and steepness of the trail. The views were not that great. CommentThe gas station is now a Esso in Yale, pull over right when you see the gravel area beside the railway crossing, the tunnel is around the corner and you wont see it until you have driven past the trail head.
The ropes need some working on, when I got to the top of the second section of ropes one of them was almost untied. However you dont actually really need the ropes to climb this section.

UpsideQuick access to trail and easy to follow DownsideSteep!!! Although ropes are provided in some sections they are looking old and ready to snap in some places. I managed without them quite easily. CommentNice views for a short hike. Good cardio test if your into that. It's the grind of the fraser valley.

UpsideGreat view as a reward for little time invested. Made it to the top in and hour and ten minutes. Gorgeous! Its steep but well worth the effort :) Downsideticks ticks ticks! Really check yourself over when you get to the bottom...my friend had two on her. Not a good hike for animals because of the steepness (some areas you shimmy across a rock face or require a rope to go up because its so steep) and the ticks. If you want to hike with your pet, i do not suggest this one CommentGreat on a gorgeous day. the views are amazing and its fun to explore on the top. Great reward for not much time put into it (completed the entire hike in 1hr 40). Turns your legs to jelly when you're done though :P

UpsideQuick hike with great views above Lady Franklin. DownsideTICKS, TICKS, TICKS!!! CommentWe should have known better than to do this hike in the spring time but the call of a new geocache was too strong. Did the hike in May and the dog had 28 ticks on him (only 2 bites) and the humans each got a bite and had a few ticks too. The view was amazing and there were lady slippers all along the trail. I liked the hike but with all the ticks I doubt we will try it again.

UpsideNice terrain & very pretty along the way. Once you've reached the the top, the view is great (you've got to hunt a little bit for that spot with a view, though). My friend & I climbed it the first week of Sept. Dry & not too hot. Well worth it!!

UpsideShort but sweet. It took me exactly one hour to the peak. DownsideA tough one hour to reach the pinnacle!! Lots of switchbacks. CommentSpectacular view of the Fraser River and the tiny town of Yale.
