It’s a great hike.... takes longer than you think. We didn’t stop at various viewpoints and it took us 2 hours to get to the top. The last 40 minutes or so is challenging... steep climb on loose rocks and tree roots. The view at the top is so worth it! Stunning!

A nice hike to do in the middle of the day. The trail is very well maintained and used frequently. There is an area that you can swim in the ocean to cool off and an amazing view waiting for you at the top.

This was an amazing hike but would be hard for a beginner. There were definitely some spots with steep inclines and intense brush. Over all it was amazing and the view up at the top made it all worth it! Would recommend to experienced hikers.

great day hike trail. the easiest part is the beginning but also feels like the hardest at the end.

not too difficult. good day hike but still needs decent footwear and some basic level of fitness.

recommend checking the current tables for Seymour Narrows beforehand and timing it for slack water. better chances of seeing a cruise ship or maybe some sea life.

Great hike, nice view points along the way. Trail was overall good. (A few broken steps and downed trees on the trail) but nothing that can’t be maneuvered. Stunning view at the top.

Watch the old wooden steps. Otherwise great half day hike.

A fun hike. Mostly uphill and a bit of navigating through mildly narrow trails. There is also a really awesome spot halfway up with a great view of the water, excellent picnic location. The top is also nice.

This is a lovely hike. It took us an hour to to top, and that is stopping at all the lookouts. We had a snack at the top and admired Seymour Narrows.
On the return we stopped at a quiet cove and soaked in some sun. I can’t wait to hike it again.

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.

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

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!

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.
