This a great trail for the beginner who is bored with flatter trails. It's short, scenic, and has a fantastic outlook at the end. It's pretty well traveled, so you'll never feel like you're "alone in the woods". Once you get past the first 300m, it's easy to hold your stride. I take my out-of-towners to this one all the time for a quick 90 minute workout.
The lookout provides a great view of deep cove and Indian Arm. This is a great little hike for anyone in Vancouver who does not want to spend the whole day in the forest and is hiking more for pleasure than exercise. The lookout point can be seen from deep cove and the hike is easy compared to many on the north shore. Another great thing is that it is open all year.
If you head to the hike on the weekend then it is a good idea to get there earlier because the parking lot and trail get busy. Other than that a great little hike, would recommend to anyone.
Great light and easy hike, ending with a fantastic resting spot over looking Deep Cove and Indian Arm. Linked with the Badden Powell the trail is popular and heavily travelled.
