Nice and easy hike with a few up hills on the way back and a lovely green scenery. Can get muddy in some areas. It's fun trying to spot all the dinosaurs.

Amazing views. Easy walk, wouldn't consider a hike. Definitely pass the green bridge at the end that goes into Joan Point Park. It leads to another trail with spectacular sites for the eyes.

Great trail for families with kids. Have your kids watch for dinosaurs hidden on tree stumps and branches ( small plastic replicas ) keeps them entertained.
Map doesn't show all the trail ... Once you reach the end at the ocean, take a right and follow trail to Dodds Narrows, lots of water wild life at tidal ebbs and flows.

a great easy hike for a beautiful view of cable bay and if you are lucky and hike to the further down narrows you can catch the orcas rideing the current. watch out don't fall in the currents are very strong

Just an amazing easy trail for a great view and walk along cable bay!! and if you are lucky and go at the right time you may get the chance to see the whales riding the current of the narrows a while down the trail.
