I've never been up here before, but this is probably the second steepest trail I've done in the area. With an incline near 40%, the section from the valley bottom to Williams Ridge also known as the "grind" section makes the grouse grind seem easy. That's one of the reasons I'm sure as to why there weren't many people up there on a sunny Sunday.
The trail is very overgrown with salmon berry for the first 200m at the bottom, and other than deadfall here and there is in good shape and well marked. The trail works its way along the ridge undulating slightly in a mostly upward direction through the forest until the odd view opens up of the valley and Chilliwack Lake on the right. The views increase as the forest thins out towards the end of the ridge until you find yourself in the alpine meadows where the Peak stands before you.
The trail itself peters out after a knoll in the alpine and this is where the route to the peak leaves the ridge. A faint trail continues up the ridge which ends in cliffs. The route traverses through boulder fields to the right, passes below the peak and leads up a dusty slope to a heather ramp that takes you all the way to the top. Although very steep in spots, the route is not technical and is fairly well marked with cairns and flagging tape through the boulder fields.
The recent cooler weather at the end of last week cleared our the haze from the forest fires in the interior making the views worth the effort.
I took about 3 hours to summit from the car and made it back in 2, running once I reached the trail again. A few people I met on the way down asked how long it would take to get to the top from where we met so all I could say with any certainty is how long it took me to get down to that point on the trail.
