The wide trail to the top of Sulphur Mountain is very much forested. Views do open briefly as the trail passes a waterfalls on the mountain's east slope. There are twenty-eight switchbacks, which keep the grade reasonable and easy the strain of the ascent. The trail steepens as it nears the summit and the gondola terminal.

From the gondola terminal, a 0.4-kilometer boardwalk trail leads to the summit of Sanson Peak along the ridge of Sulphur Mountain. The gondola company still allows hikers who walked up the trail to ride the lift down for free. Check the gondola's hours of operation, or you would have to walk back down.
