Was wet, needed hiking boots as was not suitable for walking shoes. shipwreck was fun for the kids to see.

fantastic easy walk and the sounds are beautiful.

I walked the loop track during the winter months. I found it boring during that time as there was no bird life nor no flowers. Also the tide was out.Nice to see the hills each side

We really enjoyed the Snout Trail in late May. The trail was maintained well. It was a bit muddy after a recent rain, but was still very reasonable. The views were stunning and very frequent until the Queen Charlotte overlook. After that, the trail goes down quite steeply into the forest until you reach the final clearing at sea level. If you’re just interested in views, I’d recommend turning around at Queen Charlotte. Otherwise, it’s a great hike throughout!

if you like to walk through thick bush with just a few areas to see the view of the Sounds, then you will love this hike! if not, then you will be bored quickly. there are very nice views of the Sounds but only a very small percent of the time.

I enjoyed this level loop around a local lagoon with layers of hills visible all around. Lots of geese and other birds.

Drop-dead gorgeous views of the Marlborough Sounds. Most of the trail sheltered from hot sun. Feel like you're the only person on earth when you reach the end.
