Alhqéy (al KEY) means snake in Helq'emeylem. Appropriate because this climbing trail snakes up the steep initial ridge of Lewx Qwò:m to take the grade down. It's still steep, please don't complain about it, just get stronger.
Lower trail features a 120 foot sinuous steep cedar bridge. CLIMBING TRAIL ONLY
