great little hike close to the heart of Tofino, if you continue on down the shore you can eventually reach Chesterman beach with the help of some other trail networks. many amazing views and beach access points. really enjoyed this one and a well maintained path.

Very wooded. Enchanting but darkish on a gray wet day.

Super easy hike, I'd say more of a walk. You can go down to all of the beaches along the way, as well as getting some beautiful views from above!

Decent trail - busy and all the beaches kind of look the same. Old growth is nice though, and awesome place to bring the dog. Accessible if you want an easy walk through rainforest and dont mind the busyness.

While there are some decent ascents, I wouldn’t characterize this hike as “moderate”. We biked and hiked both the Tonquin Trail and Connector. Great vistas and well worth it. I also recommend going past 3rd beach to check out Middle Beach.

Well marked trail. Easy hike. There are several spots for you to look out at the ocean. We walked it around sunset and it was gorgeous. Go all the way to Middle Beach. In the evening it was so private. Some spots in the lower sections of the trail were mucky as it had rained earlier, but it wasn't too bad or even unexpected.

Easy hike through beautiful forest to amazing beaches. Brought our dog and got completely rained out part way through but was still enjoyable (although muddy). Phone also died halfway so it took about an hour round trip not including time enjoying the beaches. Definitely an easy hike so I suggest bringing a picnic and enjoying the beaches!
