We're an older couple and the hike up was a bit of an effort. Although the actual terrain is quite good. Just steep. But once at the top the view is to die for. Almost didn't look real it was so beautiful. For us it...More

It took us over an hour to get the the peak. The trail is narrow in areas, and rocky in others. There are no washrooms/restrooms on the trail. My pedometer checked in at 10,000+ steps in total. The hike is steep in several areas. There...More

Mount Daniel is a roughly 1.5 mile hike that ascends 500m into the sky. A very challenging hike, that is not for the faint of heart, but if you make it to the top you are rewarded with a fantastic view of the harbor.

This was our second time hiking Mt. Daniel and it was just as good as the first time last fall. It's a steady climb for about 45 mins (good for moderate hikers) and the resulting view is breathtaking. If you catch it on an overcast...More

The view from the top is awesome, overlooking Pender Harbour and Madeira Park. You need to be in pretty good physical condition to make the climb and do not wear flip flops! The trail is steep but fairly good. Pick a clear day or at...More
