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.
Nice walk. Good for taking kids.
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.
located in pacific rim park it is a short 2 km round trip but well worth it. it has amazing forest scenary and takes you over low lying creeks. watch out it yas a faur amount of stairs but its easy. when you get to the beach the view and cove is amazing and a popular beach spot
