Very cool hike through woods with occasional view of the strait. View at end is awesome. Be sure to read the full story behind Ripple Rock and the way the Canadian government blew it up. That story is amazing and an engineering marvel.

Loved this hike! I would definitely recommend having some hiking experience and good foot wear.

Great hike. Nice place to chill at the opposite end.

Its really hard to remember your in BC when walking through this rainforest. It takes you to a place that you envision being so far away! Easy walk and kids absolutely love it (moss on everything is a huge deal apparently :) Can't wait to go back

Loop B is still close

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 !

Good view at the end. Good trail terrain is pretty easy. Can see Campbell River.

Route A was good, saw some fish in the creek, but sadly route B was closed. Next time!!

Awesome boardwalk through the rainforest. We saw salmon in the stream. Mushrooms and other fungi everywhere! There were a lot more stairs than I expected, but it's only 1.1km on the north side. Good signage, family enjoyed it.

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.

Very pretty with educational things to read along the way.

Great view at the top! Nice easy trail, took my pup and we were both ready for a nap afterwards!
Be careful about parking your car with any valuables, there have been known break ins around that parking lot/area!

Short trail with a steep hill down to the beach through a sitka spruce forest. From the beach you can continue to explore Pacific Rim National Park's fantastic beaches

Gorgeous short trails into the rainforest, lots and lots of stairs

Great variety of sights, flora and fauna, plus some good climbs to get your heart rate up! One of my favourites for zippy training hikes.

Beautiful area, lovely short hike away from high traffic areas with a beautiful view to reward yourself with. Saw a cougar last time when we did this trail for sunrise, but sketched by that but we were out during their hunting time.

A nice 3 hr hike

It was a good trail through a forest with lots of shades of green then opens up to a great coast beach with good sized waves!
