Beautiful trail BUT. It’s NOT EASY!

Because of the flooding this trail could be easy if you bring the right shoes. I was false under the impression that this is “easy” so I wore my tennis shoes. I broke my leg in 3 places(shattered ankle) on the way back and had to be carried out by fire department to finally have surgery and a leg full of metal.

This app says La Parouse bay is moderate ... I do that in flip flops. ... if they are rating it compared to exertion of energy then yes, this is easy. There are rocks to climb, slippery streams to cross, loose dirt and boulders on a trail nest to a 5+ foot drop.

I would definitely do this trail again .... after I heal ... but DEFINITELY in the right shoes next time.
