We went there hiking on a Sunday morning. Started early to avoid the crowd, and chose to only doing the second and third peaks. The view was incredible from second peak. I encourage people to prepare themselves prior to doing this hike (running up and down stairs for instance or have good cardiovascular output). Like most hikes make sure you... More

When you make it to the top, you won't be disappointed. The view is absolutely gorgeous! I hiked with with two 8 years old and though some parts were a bit scary with the kiddos we managed. Just be prepared with water, snacks and some level of fitness.

I've done this hike a couple of times and although its quite a tough one, it's definitely worth it for the views up top. Peaks 1 and 2 are by far the best. There are a few ladders and chains towards the top but no climbing experience is necessary. Most rewarding hike in the area for sure!

Amazing view of howe sound and Squamish without the cost of the gondola (and its a good workout). Options of one peak or 3 (2 hours or around 5).

Went to the 1st peak Last week on an amazing weather. The trails are adventurous. Climbing the peak using the chains are so amazing. The view from the top of the peak is just stunning.

We stopped here on our return journey from Whistler to Portland to hike for an hour or two before continuing our journey. It ended up taking us more like 4 hours and less of a hike than a never ending was stair climber followed by a pulley system. This hike starts with seemingly endless wooden steps and stairs with stone... More

This was an amazing trail 8 years ago but over the years it's been more and more built up with stairs and such. The view is still one of the best, and the chains up 2nd peak is fun. I would suggest to hike up 3rd peak, and then down 2nd to avoid the crowds. Also I would only do... More

Second peak is the best peak to hike to. Breath taking views are well worth the climb up what seems like endless stairs and crazy paths.

We hiked to the Chief 2nd peak in Jan!! No snow.Stopped off in Squamish on the way to Pemberton and decided to hike up to see the view. Almost vertical steps to start with and then rock steps and then chain bolted into rock and ladders to assist near the top. Bit of a challenge but loved it!! Beautiful view... More
