This walk is great, especially on a hot day since it's well covered by the canopy of trees. This lush nature walk takes you straight down to sea level as you wander beside a waterfall all the way down. Once you're at the bottom there's a great view of the ferry terminal and each time we've gone we've seen fish... More

Such a beautiful hike through the woods that ends up close to the ferry terminal. At low tide the sea life is abundant and it was interesting to be so close to the ferry as it sounded the horn and set sail!

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.
