A moderately difficult, short loop to see the unique 'pillar' of Pillar Provincial Park. Though not a lengthy hike (0.3 km one way), the trails can be slick when wet and a few trees have blown down across them, hence the 'moderate' tag. Some hikers have created routes around these obstacles. If it's wet out, I would recommend shoes with grips, especially if you want to climb a little past the pillar to get a better picture. The trail does extend above the pillar for added mileage.
