Great day hike with fabulous views over the area. Car parking available. A lot of uphill walking/climbing if going to the third peak but worth every second! There are no toilets when you get past the entrance so bare that in mind.

This hike is absolutely worth it for the view at the top. It is a shorter hike (though it doesn't feel it) but it is very steep, especially at the beginning. Even inexperienced hikers can complete this hike, they will just be a lot slower than most. However, we completed this hike on a busy Saturday afternoon. I was amazed... More

This hike will get your heart pumping and tax your legs. My wife and I had difficulty walking up and down stairs for a few days afterwards. The view from the top is epic. We lounged on the rock overlooking Howe Sound on a super sunny day. Chipmunks were eating trail mix right out of our hands. It was awesome!

We were first to the 2nd peak where we spent half an hour enjoying the views and topping up with nibbles and drinks. Started out at 8.15am and had a clear path to the top, which we reached at 10am. Only met a local lady who encouraged us to keep going! On the way back down we met loads of... More

Made the trip Sunday late morning and the getting there was a pain in the butt. Traffic was backed up and took a little longer then hoped for. I realised later that the traffic was caused by the popularity of the many sites including it being a prefered day for travel. There are many popular sites along the sunshine coast;... More

The chief is the most loved for the climbers . If you are going to try your hand at this please bring proper attire and gear. It is a very popular place for hiking and climbing the rock face. If you are driving by you just might see the rock climbers in action

I made the trip with two friends, one with a bad back, the other a mountain goat from Denver. The climb to the top is well marked and there were plenty of spots to sit and take in the view while we made our way up. I was amazed at the number of people who run up and run down... More

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!
