Howe Sound Crest

Howe Sound Crest Professional Review and Guide

"The original, informal route to the Lions along the ridge above Howe Sound has been reconstructed and extended northward to Deeks Lake and beyond, making a challenging high-level hike for backpackers.

A modest sampling of the route, for day hikers, is this 11-km (7-mile) round trip to St. Mark’s Summit. The excursion is best made from July onwards to avoid old snow patches, and is suitable for even a warm day, as most of the climbing is in the shade of the forest."

We just went to the Mt. St. Marks summit. I'd rate this a solid "Moderate" or even a "Moderate-plus" hike. There are some steep portions, and given the root exposure and ocassional small boulders, you are concentrating on your footing. It's a wonderful 1/2 workout, and the views are definately worth the sweat.
