The Ripple Rock Trail leads to the Seymour Narrows lookout where one of the most notorious marine hazards in North America used to 'gobble up' ships. These two pinnacle stone masses were successfully removed in 1958 with the largest man-made, non nuclear explosion in history!

Good view at the end. Good trail terrain is pretty easy. Can see Campbell River.

Great view at the top! Nice easy trail, took my pup and we were both ready for a nap afterwards!
Be careful about parking your car with any valuables, there have been known break ins around that parking lot/area!

Great variety of sights, flora and fauna, plus some good climbs to get your heart rate up! One of my favourites for zippy training hikes.

Beautiful area, lovely short hike away from high traffic areas with a beautiful view to reward yourself with. Saw a cougar last time when we did this trail for sunrise, but sketched by that but we were out during their hunting time.
