Amazing! Make sure to pack your swim stuff in the summertime and a hot day, and go find a swimming hole!

As described. Amazing tall trees but many were felled by the storm in 1997.

Great for pictures and education on the history of the trees and area! Beautiful area for a casual walk.

I walk this trail almost every single day. Live right down the road from it. Lovely having such a beautiful part of nature so close to home ♥️

The spot I bring every single person that visits BC to. Hands down most beautiful spot on the Island (so far that I've seen) Not much of a "hike" though, just a nice stroll.

Did this hike on Canada day with the family, had two kids ages 6 and 9 and they had no problems with it. It was a a perfect length and elevation gain to avoid kid exhaustion. Great views of the surrounding area on clear days. Probably only took one hour at a leisurely pace.

Absolutely beautiful short hike. We lucked out with awesome weather the day we hiked. Short sweet and great for kids

great hike some birds and deer

An instant aerobic workout.! Worth it for the views.

A great short hike that pays off right away. Great, magical swim hole at the lower portion.

I only give it a 2because it's so short but it's one of the most gorgeous walks

Le plus beau trail pour voir des cèdres geants

Beautiful walk through nature, very easy!

great for the family

great trail! disappointed with the beach views of the yellow cans... but my son sure enjoyed the sea creatures. Found lots of starfish, jelly fish, crabs and 5 dinos on the trail!!!

Lovely views if challenging elevation gains for such a short distance. Definitely would do it again.

My 1.5 year old son, my wife and I needed a little walk in the wonderful BC nature and heard about this little gem. the trail starts from the parking lot and has a great loop that's well maintained and easy to walk on. My son loved stopping to see the huge trees and bridges. the falls are beautiful and definitely worth the stop. if you need a quick hour walk/hike, this is a great option to consider.

As a prairie girl with short legs- holy incline, Batman! But the view was totally worth it and it was a nice all round hike, just a short trail.

Nice walk the colour of the water was beautiful and peaceful.

Walked both sides and found the old growth nice to stroll through. Great walk with young people.

Beautiful walk beside waterfalls in a lichen laden forest.

Bit short and steep. But a great workout for those who want it!

Nice stay but could have better spaced out campsites

Easy loop with beautiful views.

Awesome views of the water fall and an easy walk.

Great short hike, i brought my 11 week Black Lab on this for his first "Big Hike" and it was extremely easy to follow. Lots of friendly faces and even friendlier 4 legged friends on the trail.

Pretty easy hike, nice path. Plenty of friendly people and even more pooches. A great spot for the amateur birder. Spotted several different species (pileated woodpecker,
merganser, thrush, robin, pacific wren, brown creeper). And also sea lions.

Very beautiful! Nice short loop.

I was there yesterday and the trails were quite icy with all of the snow we've received. However, I think I'd say it was a little less hazardous than the other side of the highway. Other than that, it was a beautiful day in a beautiful park. I strolled both sides and it took me about an hour.

Great work out and amazing views. Loved it!
