Every avid hiker needs to hike this inactive volcanic core. Amazing view from the top.

“some variety with a rewarding goal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Although the beginning is long/boring through the woods, then in the meadows the beauty reveals, and either at the top of the tusk or by the lakes...The magic is there

“Absolute stunner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

If you have the time and the stamina, this is the most spectacular hike in BC, as far as I know. Being a geologist, reaching the raw, fresh volcanic peak was a particularly exciting goal, but to stand atop this unique formation and gaze at the view is unmatched!

“Oh my Goodness! Almost died there - I am a beginner ;)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Hi everyone,

This is a very beautiful trail and absolutely a must if you are intermediate and up + healthy individual.

Me and my classmate had knee problem and therefore suffered a real pain when were on our way down. Otherwise, it is a really good trail, beautiful scenery, lot's of other hikers, there are also areas to camp, maps on the roads etc.

Pretty convenient - but again - this is not for absolute beginners like myself.

Enjoy!

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

An awe-inspiring, picturesque hike to an important local landmark. The volcanic plug is a spindle tower of black rock. Read up on it and be prepared for the distance and potential changes in weather and terrain.
