Description
Waypoints (0)

Please note: This trail is right across the street from Combs Country Candy Store, although you can’t park there, so you have to find street side parking along the highway ie. pull outs to get there. Parking is very limited. This short and easy trail takes you to one of the hidden secrets in the Valley of Trails, Hole in the Wall. The hole was once a shortcut for the city's waterline and today is a picturesque waterfall on Vancouver Island. While the trail mostly consists of old roads, it is wise to not travel it during the winter months, as they are bound to get quite waterlogged and muddy. Taking a side trail will take you to a lovely waterfall. The area has been previously logged, but the forests are still lovely during the spring and summer months.

Beautiful, easy hike! Me and my dog loved it. I parked in a small parking lot roughly across the entrance, on the other side of the highway (close to the candy shop!)

Fun little walk down to the hole. Pretty waterfall, gorgeous Fall foliage and mushrooms. Nice little leg-stretcher on the way across the island.

WalkingGreat!Rocky

Come here after a rainy day to see heavier stream theough the hall. Short walk from the coomba candy store. There is water going through the path, make sure you wea waterproof shoes if you’re going during fall/winter time. There is no direction so the map at AllTrails really helpful.

Falls thru the hole we're cool. Rock statues we're also cool. Very busy. Wear good shoes, clay areas along trail we're wicked slippery.

Parked at parking area up hill from Coombs. A longer walk, more elevation, better exercise

Trail to it is ok at best, saw older folks really struggle, it was pretty busy today, water was coooolld! But it is definitely worth some time to visit. I’ll try and climb into the hole next year, wasn’t prepared for it this time.

Beautiful spot! Be very careful, multiple times large rock pieces fell from the top of the hole. Twice nearly hitting people who were in there for a photo opp. Large piece also fell from the massive wall.
