Nice walk to the beach with optional detour to Sitting Lady Falls (worth it). Our three year old managed this trail easily on foot but we struggled a bit with the stroller (despite it being a three-wheel) so would recommend a backpack for transporting babies.

Such a beautiful and ultimately thrilling trail. Be sure to see the waterfall on the lower trail before you climb up to the trestle.

Great 360 degrees view at the summit!

East walk to ocean down hill then Cascade trail up very steep. Good thing only .6 of a km. Well groomed. Timberline back to parking lot a welcome easy hike to the car. Would do the reverse next time.

A great trail. Some nice up and down, well travelled and beautiful. A good little hike for the whole family. Lots of little sit down spots or lookout points. Take you time and enjoy Dean Park

Nice short trail, but it gets pretty steep in some sections. The waterfall is tiny, but a nice stop before heading up to the trestle.

We also took the wrong trail went the long way but it was well worth it as the view was great. The cross is not near as far but we will save that trail for another time.

A bit difficult, but the view is worth it!

Interesting hike, very poor signage. You’ll need to park next to the southbound highway one, across from Goldstream Provincial Park parking. Then walk along the highway northbound, there is a the beginning of the trail.

Alternatively you can park at the Goldstream provincial park, go under the tunnel, then climb uphill. There is a waterfall if you walk straight after crossing the tunnel.

I won’t take very young children to the railway trestle, there are no railings on either side, and sections of the trail are quite steep.

Did this with our children today. Quick hike. Beautiful view

Gorgeous hike. Some steep and slippery sections and a great view on the way and at the summit. Went with the kids, it was a bit hard for the 6 year old but she managed with an occasional piggy back ride!! Glad we wore good hiking/running shoes.

Great 360° views

Great trail with a waterfall and railway trestle bridge. Poor signage-helps to take a pic of the nap at the start. To get to the waterfall follow the stream bed. Wear running/hiking shoes.

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.

A few steep sections and some loose rock, but it is a well maintained trail. Nice views at the top and you can take several little side trails around the back side to make a longer loop. Easy to find your way around, especially w this app:)

Nice easy short hike. Took just over an hour at a brisk walk.

Don’t miss checking out Niagra falls before heading up to the trail. It really is beautiful. Crossing the bridge is quite a rush! - Further on there is a second trestle bridge and beyond that a tunnel. It all made for a great afternoon.

Great trail, beautiful views. Hike it at least once every summer.

easy must do. perfect views of Victoria n Sannich.

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.

A bit more then 12 k but the view is nice at the end

Beautiful beach

it was ok for a short walk. easy going. but not very interesting. the picknick area not great either.

Loved it!

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

Shaded, challenging enough at times to be interesting, beautiful surroundings

Challenging but not too long. Just right for a few hours. Great views!
