Definitely easy, not moderate

Beautiful little trail

Be ready for mud and trail that is tough to follow at times. But fun to do and a good adventure!

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

Beautiful

Short, easy trial with different landscapes and interest trees.

It was muddy, but due to the cold weather some bits were frozen, so we were fine in regular boots, though I could see it getting messy if the climate was warmer.
However, Milo my French bulldog was in desperate need of a bath afterwards.

The hike took us longer than expected because we had to manoeuvre around the puddles but that was half of the fun! It was neat to see the old plane sitting there among the trees. After a cup a tea to warm us up and a few photo ops we made our way back.

Overall we had a great time doing this hike and would definitely do it again. It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve!

It is a muddy hike but worth it to see that plane sitting there on the side of the mountain

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.

Boards were frosty and slick on a December afternoon, even though it was fairly warm and sunny. Very interesting place but no educational signage or pamphlets. I wouldn't recommend this as wheelchair accessible as some of the boards are broken and the boardwalk is uneven in places.

You will need to park at Radar Hill and hike 1/2 ml along the highway. No places to park on the road. Also need knee hi boots bc the mud is that deep.

We went on a rainy, rainy day and everyone said, don't go when it's raining, cos it's muddy enough already. But we had so much fun.
Follow the tags and ropes after you get to the bog.

Very cool boggy environment. My favorite.

Very pretty with educational things to read along the way.

Sometimes tricky trail, but well worth the effort of finding the shortest paths through mud to get to the plane.

The hike is fun as you try not to fall into the mud and the plane is incredible.

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

Relative to other trails/walks in Pacific Rim National Park, this trail is not as exciting, the beaches you visit are nice and secluded though (Kwistis and South Beach). The South beach trail itself only goes as far as it's namesake beach the connecting trail to Florencia Bay is actually the Nuu-Chah Nulth trail.

Very nice short trail. Interesting landscape, like walking through a Dr. Seuss book.

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

A difficult hike through lots of mud!! Well worth it though as the destination is fabulous. Definitely need hiking boots.
The trail starts easily enough and you go through an abandoned building (a bit weird, but legit) before continuing on through the bogs.

Great hike but pretty difficult to make it to the plane. Wear rain boots!

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!

short but sweet hike takes you on a short excursion through stereotypical coastal rain forest and delivers you onto a classic west coast beach which stretch for kilometers. kid friendly. boardwalk and stairs.
