Great place to go for a walk. The beautiful well kept trail meanders along the gully bottom amongst big trees and tall waterfalls. Lots of stairs, but they're worth it! Be sure to go at low tide too, you can go right up close to the ferries, which are very cool to see up close!

great walk... its a well hidden paradise in the middle of the city. It goes down to the ocean where you can sit on a rocky beach

just a few hours after we arrived, dazed, from our journey from east coast maritime canada, long and tedious by air and sea ferry, we discovered this AMAZING bit of pristine west coast rain forest, no wider than a hop and a skip, and (perhaps) one km or so downhill, steep descent to a grandiose finale, surprise surprise, the beach,...

I am still amazed about the little hidden gems Nanaimo has to offer. I just recently by accident discovered this one. This is the most magical little trail. A kudos to whoever is maintaining it!

I was excited when I saw that there was this trail near my house when I moved. Unfortunately, I was disappointed as there was a lot of garbage and debris along the trail. However, its worth a walk as the creek and waterfall are quite pretty.

What a wonderful surprise! The entrance to this ravine oasis is easy to miss, it's tucked at the end of a church parking lot across from Tim Hortons near the ferry. Each time I visit, I feel like I'm being transported to another world. I love the bridges, waterfall, stream and path. To top it all off, you end up... More

Great hilly workout with a treat at the bottom: a close-up view of the BC Ferries. Pathways are well groomed, beautiful creek flowing down beside the trail.

I have lived close to this park my whole life and never went to it. My family and I went a few weekends ago and we were amazed. The walk is for the able bodied as there are lots of stairs. The decent into the gully shows waterfalls, lots of greenery, and listen closely you can hear the birds singing.... More

Park and start your walk opposite the Brooks Landing parking lot and immerse yourself in a part of the city untouched by development and a fairyland of ferns and waterfalls. The sound of running water accompany you as you make your way down through the canyon to Departure Bay beach near the ferry dock. Return via the road from the... More
