It was definately a good workout. Very muddy for first half of trail. On way to the river the last half hour was decline which is incline when heading back. Wear good hiking boots or gum boots.

HikingGreat!

At least it has an objective, day hikes in PG are either walks through the forest or walks through the forest by a lake. 1.5 hours each way easily. Be sure to go all the way to the end, most people stop as soon as they get to the river but the trail goes another 1/4 mile downriver to a much nicer resting point.

The trail was VERY muddy and slightly overgrown which got me quite wet when it started raining. The canyon was nice It was actually only 9.46 km from trailhead to river and back, not 13.2 as the description on this site says

The last 3.5 kms to of the drive to the trail head is not suitable for a sedan. I did it in a civic but I wouldn't do it again. The trail itself is not well maintained. Ridiculous amount of mosquitoes and bugs. I bet there are better option available in the PG area. The view in the end is pretty good. We had fun sitting by the river but I am not sure if it was worth the 5 km hike to that spot and back (10 km in total).

Real muddy, and the river was pretty high, was a decent workout but anticlimactic.

View is nothing spectacular and the trail itself is currently over ran with mosquitoes and quite muddy. Not worth the walk and the bites in my opinion. Noticed some bear and animal tracks along the way, please be sure to bring bear spray if you are headed out.

Worth noting that the first km of the mapped trail in this app is a road that you can drive down when there is no snow. With that said the entire hike is about or just under 10km. Overall a great hike, not a ton of views until you reach the canyon however the entire trail is enjoyable. Slowly declines towards the water so the way back is largely uphill though never steep for any significant length of time really.

The trail is in good spring condition. One swampy area that you have to bush wack through, and a bit of snow on some parts of the trail. Nice time to hike it as I only saw 2 mosquito's. 1.5 hours in and 1.5 hours out. Pack a lunch worth eating it down by the river.

Really fun hike to do. I've done this hike a few times now and the best time to do it is in early to late fall when the river is at its lowest point. When the water is high there is not much to do at the river, but when the water is low many of the islands become connected to shore making for an awesome time. Hike was ok with a couple steeper sections. Would recommend hiking this from September till snow flies as that seems to be the best times.

The trail is slightly overgrown / muddy in areas. Lots of bugs and can be boring as there’s only 1-2 places along the way with actual decent views in my opinion. The canyon itself is nice, neat looking rocks / sand and a couple lil areas to explore. Definitely nothing super exciting but for a day outing or a lil relax down by the river this is good! Trail is also pretty easy so it is suitable for many.

Overall a great trail. The trail is dry and easily navigable by foot. Some parts are a little overgrown, but nothing too outrageous. The trail to get to water level is sandy and a little unstable. Good footwear is a must. Right now the river is running fast and high, leaving little beach available to relax on. The mosquitos are hungry- bring bug spray! The road in and out is in great shape.

First to Review

It is an easy hike in but slight incline on the way out. It took us about 1.5 hours each way. We went in the spring so I'd imagine it will be a lot nicer and greener later in the summer! there was still a bit of snow on the trail.
