Astounding foliage. Lichens on massive trees provide a lush canopy with vistas over hilly terrain.

The path had minimal wear, no root ruts and also was not incredibly crowded. We hiked around 3pm on a Thursday, and though the 'parking lot' was full, there were only a few folks on the trails themselves.

At the beach we could see sea lions bobbing their heads and could hear spectacular bird calls that are (probably) unique to ocean fowl.

This was as amazing as anything we found in Banff and on par with nearby Cathedral Grove.
