Levi T. on Della Falls
Getting to the trailhead is a bit of a pain but the hike should include the trip to love lake on the opposite side of the valley.
Levi T. on Schooner Trail
Nice walk. Good for taking kids.
Although we didn't make it all the way to the top due to not being prepared for the snow, the hike was amazing. A bit cloudy but when it cleared up a bit you could see other mounts nearby. If you are planning in going during March where there is a bit of snow still, don't forget your snow shoes unless you want to get stuck waist deep.
Easy trail, all of which is structured by wood trail sections and stairs marked every 100 meters with an oval metal marker giving you the distance travelled from the parking lot. The beach is similar to other area beaches. When I arrived we could smell a fishy odour that we could not attribute to anything we could recognize. On the beach you walk along a First Nation community houses. On the beach we observed litterings of plastic bottle caps and other small items most likely left by visitors of the area. Shame! Please don't litter and take back what you brought along. The hike is pleasant and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
this hike is amazing but very difficult. if you take judges route make sure to take the road immediately to the south of the parking lot. from there head up for 10 or so minutes and you'll see the trail head heading off into the Bush on the right. it will look like a an old gravel road. walk another 10 minutes up this trail and you will come to a cul-de-sac. you will see the trail on the left. very visible. make sure to always follow and look for colored tape going up, it's very easy to walk off the trail and have to retrace your steps. 2.5 hours up and 2.5 hours down, amazing views but make sure to bring a jacket for up top and thin gloves for the rock climbing portions. good luck ! and bring nuts to feed the birds on the way up, super cool
The Kwisitis visitor center and Wickanish beach are in this area. The visitor center has many informative exhibits and clean restrooms. Parking costs about 20 cad for a family. The beach is great for a walk and you can see ball seaweed washed up on the beach.
located in pacific rim park it is a short 2 km round trip but well worth it. it has amazing forest scenary and takes you over low lying creeks. watch out it yas a faur amount of stairs but its easy. when you get to the beach the view and cove is amazing and a popular beach spot
this is an amazing trail well worth the hike to the peak of this mountain. it has amazing views and is a great mountaneering hike all year around with trails for beginners to those who want a challenge, and also if you can find it its cool to see the old ski resort
