Our group moved steadilly and were at the top by 1100, after starting at 0830. After spending an hour at the summit, we took about 2 hours to get down. The weather was perfect, with light breezes above treeline on a a sunny day. While Copeland's guidebook suggests the first km involves a lot of creek crossing and turning, it is now much more straightforward. From the Mt. Burke car park (well signed) 0.7km down the campground road, follow the old roadbed that begins at the end of the lot for about 200 metres until it becomes single-track and begins its rise out of the valley. Stay on it. We found the entire trail quite well-defined. Even above treeline, it was never so faint that one couldn't deduce where one should be going.
