25 minutes on a steep trail brings you to the top and and a large open rocky bluff. The straight down look to Hotel Lake alone would be worth it. But the view is much better than that - the entire harbour and across the...More

Visitors always go to Mt Daniel but the Pender Hill experience is easier and a way nicer view. Take a picnic and plan on making it an experience.

This is a good hike but it's uphill most of the way. The view at the top is worth it, though. On a clear day if would be fantastic but we were on a cloudy day so it was only so-so.

This trail is relatively short but a steep climb up. However the view at the top is spectacular. It would be a nice spot to picnic and someone has thoughtfully constructed a rustic log bench

Parking is very limited only a tiny spot maybe 6 cars. Quite steep going up but take it slow and it is worth it.

Our trek up and down is about 45 minutes. However the views at the top will keep you much longer. Bring a bottle of water in the summer, It is dry, dry, dry. Plan to spend at least 1/2 hour to take in the views,...More

Me again...sorry, didn't say anything about the elevation. The Sunshine Coast Trails website says it's about 220 meters and the hiking trail is about 3/4 km.
