Awesome hike! As usual, Whistler Blackcomb set the standard. This trail was well maintained and while I was one of the first up in the morning, it was well used. Ran into a Blackbear just past the 4 km mark. Great day!

    We hiked up all three sections in early August, on a very hot day, but it was absolutely worth it. The views as you go higher are gorgeous, a rainbow of wildflowers everywhere and old growth forest with a few educative signs mostly about the trees. The trail is perfectly marked and it took us a bit over 2 hours with a couple of breaks to get to the top. It is really hard on the legs and cardio though !

      Did the whole Ascent Trail ( little burn, big burn, and heart burn) two times in the same week. It took us 2:14 minutes to do the 3 sections. It is a beautiful hike, very well marked, and although it is a bit difficult, it is not extremely long.

        Did the descent, not the ascent. Took about 45 minutes to get down the hill....very steep and can be tough on the legs. Very similar to BCMC descent but worth it (and well marked trail).
