Very easy. The full trail is a board-walk, and it is absolutely stunning. Could be slippery after rainfall.

A must do when you are in Pacific Rim NP. Most beautiful boardwalks we’ve ever done!

Super easy, really popular trail. Everything is beautiful! Pretty much all board walkways - can be pretty slippery when wet.

Gorgeous!! Trail B was quiet and majestic. Trail A you could hear a bit of highway traffic but a lot of birds singing and we saw baby Coho salmon in the stream. Each loop takes around 20 minutes.

Great informative trail set. Lots of up and down on the north trail, but both trail routes were great to take you through the valley and to all the different parts of the environment. The south route hat lots of streams while the north had lots of birds and trees.

Beautiful boardwalk stroll. Easygoing walk for all ages. The North track was closed due to some downed trees from a storm in Feb 2019. South tract still open, easy stroll. Some areas were slippery with frost since it was only about 2 degrees in the morning we were there.

Beautiful board walk trail. Had some ice build up so be careful. Trail A that is north of highway is closed due to storm damage.

Beautiful figure eight loop. Both trails are open. Trail A has some road noise, Trail B is tranquil and quiet. Amazing spider webs on the trees when the sun hits them just right.

Wonderful rainforest, only drawback is the traffic noise pollution along some parts of the trail, due to the proximity to Highway 4.

We did both loops with our kids, stopping along the way to read the signs and learn more about the rainforest. Such a beautiful environment. The boardwalks are fantastic...many steps but very doable for active families.

Its really hard to remember your in BC when walking through this rainforest. It takes you to a place that you envision being so far away! Easy walk and kids absolutely love it (moss on everything is a huge deal apparently :) Can't wait to go back

Awesome boardwalk through the rainforest. We saw salmon in the stream. Mushrooms and other fungi everywhere! There were a lot more stairs than I expected, but it's only 1.1km on the north side. Good signage, family enjoyed it.
