Nice easy stroll in the park with a relaxing feel. The lagoon is beautiful and this is a place worthy of repeat visits.

Scenic coastal route one way followed by a forest path and road back to the parking lot. Very enjoyable and not too difficult, as long as you're prepared for navigating amongst roots and rocks one way and elevation change the other.

Read the reviews! I did this hike back in 2016 with my husband and my brother. It is one of the best day hikes I’ve done in Canada but it wasn’t easy as many of these reviews have also stated. I’d say moderate to difficult. It is also a 10 hike along the coast. We had a gorgeous spring day for this and I have terrific memories of blue skies, sea life and the sound of crashing waves. A very memorable hike! Shout out to the blog ‘HikeBikeTravel’ for this most excellent suggestion.

easy, pretty, nice little informational placards, nice beaches. good for families with small kids

Lovely little spot to walk. There is no way this should be labelled as "moderate". Moderate hikes are a bit of a challenge for me. This place is one of the easier trails.

It’s a loop trail that goes around the lake and there’s lots of side trails to explore

Was a really pretty quick hike. Gets challenging in parts, but a good work out and views. Took us an hour to do the 2.5 mile loop to the summit and back.

to short but beautiful

pretty hike, usually make it a round trip by circling back on the road

Amazing hike! we actually took Blue in, came into Pink, and met up with Yellow and took yellow out, making it a 6.9 mile/11 km loop. yellow was hard to see the blazing at times but a great hike! I recommend good boots and maybe some trekking poles, as we were glad we had ours!

Nice 1 hour hike to the summit. you can make it longer by going down the back side and back again which takes 3.5 hours in total. Busy on the weekends.

I really enjoyed the loop around Matheson Lake and the walk along Matheson Creek to the lake, however Roche Cove itself was nice but not amazing.

I didn't end up on the right trail as I was uncomfortable going down the logging road, there was a lot of trucks and cutting going on. I did however find other trails that were okay, would be great for biking!

Very beautiful and moderate trail!

One of my favourite hikes. I have run most of it. Great for a little challenge without all the heights.

I really enjoyed this short but sweet walk. I'll definitely return in the summer to enjoy some of the little private beaches.

Really great walking trail! Pretty short, but it's nice to sit and listen to the ocean. Often you'll see deals or sea lions!

Nice little walk not too much of a hike. Nice for beach walks !

Lovely walk along the water. Clear lagoon on one side and the strait on the other. Saw several seals or sea lion swimming off shore.

Easy 13km, one way from becher bay to iron mine bay. 6 hours including about 1 hour worth of stops. Beautiful with the fog rolling in and out.

We took beechy head trail and then connected back via this trail. It was awesome but not easy. Kids 10 and 4 loved it because of all the rocks to climb and the variety of view and trees and beaches, and it was a bit dangerous in spots:)

easy hike! a little bit of cardio to the top, but very manageable. i would find the rating of *moderate* a bit high.
