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!

It was wonderful, waters quite high but didn't effect any of the trails. just a nice and easy wet coast morning!

Better than I expected. The hike actually can be a loop. There are several bridges that traverse the river so it’s not really an in and out walk. Very easy. Definitely accessible walk for all ages and abilities.

We lucked out on this hike with the weather. It's a very easy, little to no elevation gain. Keep an eye out for the handmade Owls along the trail. Make sure you make it to Dodd's Narrows and if you're in luck, you'll catch the sea otters feasting on fish across from Mudge Island. Bring a snack and water and please don't litter!

Took the judges route up. Snowed the night before and near the top some of the steep rocky scrambles had potential to be very dangerous with the ice and snow, but with careful judgement and patience we made it up to the summit all in one piece. The hike is very steep and not for the faint-hearted. This was my first time hiking this mountain and the views on the way and at the summit were unreal.

Wonderfully beautiful waterfalls on upper falls trail. Good hike on loop trail

Nice forest but boring hike if you want variety

Really beautiful east short trail

easy hike, and easy enough to get off path and really take in the views.

The gate to the logging road is closed due to extreme fire risk. Only way u r getting in there is by bike.

Easy trail, really good for families. The waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous and there are some great little spots to have a dip in the water. Absolutely loved it and would definitely go again!
