A great trail with a variety of terrain. The forest and the beach are both beautiful. Some hills and stairs; definitely manageable for beginners.

Not Easy. I would rate it easy-moderate due to the quick incline. We are in our 50’s and 60’s so that affects my review.

Great trail. Climbs a fair bit at the start and then steep into the cove at the end. Nice walk, good trail run.

A beautiful west coast trail that ends at a secluded beach looking left across to Deep Cove, and right up the Indian Arm. What more could you ask for in a short, easy hike. This is a well maintained trail for the most part. Some areas will require some finesse due to rocks and tree roots. There is an outhouse at the beach. Very clean trail. Remember to pack out what you pack in. :)

Great family hike. Nice wide trails. Perfect addition to some time at beach kayaking or crabbing or fishing. Can also add Admiralty Point (6km) to make it longer

Nice hike with a good spot to stop and have a snack / lunch if you brought it. Very busy trail the day we went and finding parking can be a challenge.

Great hike through forest and ferns. The last third of the beach trail is gorgeous but steep; however there are lots of stairs and boulders to help you along the way. Sidenote: there is a side trail towards Bedwell Bay about 300 m from the trailhead that I would recommend. I saw sea lions there and hundreds of tiny crabs.
