Nature trips

Easy access but go early to get good parking. Short uphills lovely big walk and coastal shores. At low tide lots of additional shore line to explore and tidal pools. Can get very busy on the weekends especially during the summer.

Vancouverite. Short hike with the parents. Sweet view of Smugglers cove from a bench perfectly placed on top of a rocky hill. Didn’t get the chance to walk around the loop due to time but overall an enjoyable trail.

Rugged Arbutus tree-lined coastline views. Pretty easy, short uphills and a roots but nothing technical. Not wheelchair accessible.

Great well marked trail. Nice and lush within this trees then it opens up to a breathtaking cove. I highly recommend just stopping and witnessing the silence in different areas. Also saw some seals off the coast near the turn around point. Good for all ages & dogs :)

Fun little hike with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Rocky/rooty in parts but easy enough.

Great trail to see some even better sights! Fairly easy enough a few little rocky/rooty sections but nothing too crazy. Was pretty busy but went around noon on a Sunday. Good for all ages.

Beautiful hike that’s quite easy. No hiking boots required. Lots of resting points with beautiful hidden coves. At sunset this hike would be spectacular! Took us just over an hour

Beautiful easier hike for anyone. Not, oh it's super easy if you are in top shape but easy for anyone who wants to see great views and is ok with a a few stairs. I took my husband on this one after we had hiked 12KM earlier that day, we're still married and he's still talking to me so, that easy.

It is an easy hike with beautiful view. We came on a week day and it was very peaceful and quiet. It's a good trail for birdswatching. We saw different kinds of woodpeckers and also came across a snake (nonpoisonous type) along the way. https://youtu.be/SVcgXMq6AeU

Muddy, slushy and wet in a few places due to recent (unusual) snowfall, but nothing too treacherous. Lots of interesting signs along the way about flora and fauna. Easy but rewarding. Beautiful views.
