We were looking forward to trying out this trail in February 2019 however it was closed for the week of our trip due to downed trees from a storm. Good reason to come back to Tofino!!

Stunning boardwalk trail with really nice old growth west coast forest, dripping in moss. Go at a low tide and walk along the beach to the right and around the point to access Schooner Cove, a very beautiful and less frequently visited beach.

Not strenuous, but an absolute stunner. Combination on old cedar forest, stream valleys and the finale at schooner cove beach. All in 2km roundtrip.

Walk through beautiful moss covered forest down to gorgeous beach. All along wooden boardwalks / steps.

A “must do” if visiting Tofino. Lots of stairs and a narrow wooden pathway. Not for anyone who struggles physically

This trail was AWESOME. I was skeptical about it being a little much for my wife hiking with our little one in a carrier but the trail was not sketchy at all. Boardwalk the entire way through the rainforest, to then opening up to a gorgeous stretch of pacific beach. I think we just lucked out with timing because the tide seemed low so we were able to hike out to one of the little islands you could tell is surrounded by water when the tide is in. But even if you were to hike this trail during high tide you are totally safe on the trail itself. Just don’t wander too far on to the beach at the end, that’s where you need to be considerate of tide danger.

It was a good trail through a forest with lots of shades of green then opens up to a great coast beach with good sized waves!

short but sweet hike takes you on a short excursion through stereotypical coastal rain forest and delivers you onto a classic west coast beach which stretch for kilometers. kid friendly. boardwalk and stairs.

Easy trail, all of which is structured by wood trail sections and stairs marked every 100 meters with an oval metal marker giving you the distance travelled from the parking lot. The beach is similar to other area beaches. When I arrived we could smell a fishy odour that we could not attribute to anything we could recognize. On the beach you walk along a First Nation community houses. On the beach we observed litterings of plastic bottle caps and other small items most likely left by visitors of the area. Shame! Please don't litter and take back what you brought along. The hike is pleasant and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
