Wear hikers over runners... terrian on the Shore Pine trail is rocky... the beacon lane trail is a simple 10 min walk from parking to the lighthouse lookout

We got a bit lost not taking the right turn and didn't manage to do a loop just went up and back because the time we spent lost. Beautiful view, still well covered in snow.

We did this trail yesterday. Still completely covered in snow, so prepare to walk through snow the entire route. Trail is still easy to follow as there are signs along the way. We were the only ones at the summit in the morning. Beautiful view and worth the trek through the snow.

Hiked yesterday, snow the entire way starting at the parking lot basically. Crampons suggested!

Still lots of snow, micro spikes are recommended with hiking boots

Really beautiful view of Vancouver and the ocean.

One of the best hikes we have done so far this year. The trail is not super defined so follow the orange markers. The falls was amazing. Definitely keeping this one on the short list of hikes

Did this hike today. Snow right from the beginning. Not a hard hike, but a beautiful view at the end. If you are looking for a short hike, this is a good one.

Great relaxing hike. Multiple view points of the ocean. I went early around 9am so the parking was not so bad. However as I was leaving around noon, there were no spots available.

Amazing hike along a number of ridges. Gets hot in the sun. Fantastic lakes to camp at.

Awesome but super hard .

Well marked trail. We went in October and it was fairly muddy and snowy so boots are definitely the preference over sneakers. Such a stunning view at the top to hang out and have a snack and enjoy all the whiskey jacks!

Travel light but bring plenty of water. Prepare yourself for amazing views. No one is overstating when they say the trail is difficult. Did the trail in August 2015

It’s a great trail but unlike the proposed route, it’s not actually possible to cross the suspension bridge from the west side. If you zoom into this proposed hike, you’d have to go off trail.

Very nice hike, long but not steep. Lots of cool wooden bridges and amazing dam in the one end of the loop. If you walk with small children, from half point it is possible to take s transit back or continue on the other side of the river. Overall it was 18 km and took 4 hours.

Really nice short hike and great for dog walking.
When you start from the parking lot the trail it is very easy and clear. You will come to a point where you can continue slightly left along the trail (West side of the river which is the route shown on this site) or cross a wooden bridge. If you stay on the path and do not cross the bridge it will be easy to follow orange markers. The trail remains wide and quite easy, it likely will take an hour or so to complete out and back style.

This is where people get confused:
If you cross the bridge and take the East side of the river there are markers for a short distance to a fork and then the trail gets much more difficult and is not well marked. If you go right at this fork you will meet up with a rocky path that resembles a creek. This will head up to a fence with a gate and connect to the service road in only a couple of minutes. If you head left at the fork you will parallel the river on a slippery (most of the year) and narrow trail. This is the trail some commenters refer to as being sketchy and on the edge of a cliff. It is more difficult than the West of the river trail, and I would watch little ones on this trail. This is also the route that leads you to the old car wreck. Shortly after the car wreck you reach the service road and a large, wooden bridge. You can do the trail as a loop, connecting the West and East trails with the service road.

This is a very pretty and green trail; however it needs better signage and a trail map, as I think most people assume they should cross the wooden bridge near the start of the trail leading to confusion!

Nice views. Great wildlife.

Best on a sunny winter day when you can slide down the snow on your butt

The hike was great make sure you take poles and proper snowshoes. The view on the top is amazing. Make sure you check the avalanche warnings there are about 4 avalanche paths make sure you are prepared before you head up in the winter.

Easy, year around trail. Nice scenery. The canyon is very beautiful. It took us 4-5 hours to finish the whole trip.

Snow covered now. Good footwear is a good idea. Stunning with the snow.

October 29. Easy trail up, pretty views up top. Muddy spots here and there but it’s late in the season and has rained a bit. Pretty busy, people and dogs. Took the east trail up and down. I prefer Tunnel Bluffs over this one. Same view but shorter.

Explored Crossover Trail-lost the trail and ended up at the Baden Powell and then back to Brothers Creek road and out.
Found that trail was easily lost and confused with biking trails.
