The gondola ride offered spectacular views of Howe Sound and The Chief. The suspension bridge and viewing platforms located at the Summit Lodge provided additional viewing opportunities. The Panorama trail by the Lodge was well groomed and well marked. The Backcountry trails however were difficult to figure out from the map that was provided. Access to all backcountry trails started with a 30 min hike along a logging road...nothing to see along here, eventually we reached a trail which separated into the Sky Pilot and Skyline ridge trail. We chose the ridge trail hoping to reach a view point... we did not. After hiking for close to 2 hours we decided to turn back. It would be nice to have markers along the way to indicate how far you have hiked and thus if you're close to your destination. There's free wifi at the Lodge, however once you head into the backcountry, cell coverage is minimal...either 'no service' or one bar if you stand very still...a reminder, you are in the wilderness. We finished our day with lunch at the Summit Restaurant...the fish tacos made with salmon were good.
