Really beautiful views and quite an easy hike. There are some rocky parts so wear good shoes. Also ran into a black bear on the trail today. Make sure to bring bear bells!

Hiked this trail with my dog after a torrential downpour. The trail was empty and covered in fog, which lifted as we got to the beach. I didn't hike the entire trail. Instead a veered left at the loop, and took the trail to the beach. The shoreline is stunning, and I would highly recommend this place. Saw a bear on the road in. Will definitely be coming back again!

Pleasant walk along the seashore. Saw a few little snakes and plenty of bear poop. Would rate the trail as ‘Easy’ not ‘Moderate’ . Would recommend a good pair of shoes for walking on the beach rocks.

Loved it

Wonderful hike with so many changes from the path, to the board walk, and along the rocks. Wet ground today through the woods but worth it coming around to the beach. Very easy but you need good shoes for walking the rocks. Missed this hike last year when a man was returning up and said there were bears ahead and I might want to just walk to the beach.

Beautiful place! when you turn left on the beach you can observe seals. Only wonder why is moderate since its so easy.

Beautiful hike. I would recommend going early in the morning to avoid the hot sun and turning right when you reach the fork in the trail (to avoid a large hill at the end). I saw one rabbit, one deer and a gorgeous white lady slipper. Lots of wild flowers and birds everywhere.

Most of the trail is easy-moderate terrain but the seaside portions are rocky. Great views throughout with turquoise waters. We saw coyote and bear droppings throughout our walk and recent bear tracks on the beaches. Definitely bring a whistle or other noise maker to help scare them off (in case they are present that day).

Great way to spend an afternoon. Trail was well maintained, but noteably few benches or areas to stop. Reports of a family of bears wandering around just the day before I went -- fortunately, I had no encounters, though we did find bear droppings on the trail. Be prepared to be bear safe! Full loop is suitable for older kids who have the endurance, and younger kids and those who do not want to commit to the full distance can still enjoy a beautiful and easy walk to the beach area.

A beautiful spot. There are 2 trails. One of which is an 8km loop mostly along the cobblestone shoreline. The other is a trail along the stretch of white sand beaches. Although access to the last beaches are denied due to nesting Plovers, but still a beautiful walk up to this point. Very easy trails to hike with benches and platforms along the way. There is no camping at this provincial park. It is for day use only.
