Regarding trail Mt. Cheam near Chilliwack, BC

I am looking at hiking to Golden Ears Peak and wondering about trail lengths and times. From my understanding I can hike 2 hours to Alder Flats, stay over night, hike 7 hours to Golden Ears Peak, stay over night at Panorama Ridge, hike back 7 hours to Alder Flats, stay over night, hike back 2 hours to the trail head. Is this overkill with the trip break up or is it necessary? Does it take 7 hours to get from the parking lot to the peak or 7 hours to get from Alder Flats to the peak? How do people usually break up this hike? Thanks!

I would go all the way to the Panorama Ridge and camp, then summit Golden Ears the next day rather than doing it from Alder. The hike to Alder is easy so you can get lots of rest there and then hike up to Panorama. The hike to Panorama is exhausting and you need lots of water. I took 12 litres for two people. The summit climb is now just a scramble since you can now bypass ice fields, so no crampons are necessary. Check this though - I climbed in mid-August.
