Takes you to the water and back up through the rain forest. You need proper foot wear and be careful as the trail was very icy. (to be expected in the winter)

An easy hike of about 5 km with some up and down, the trail winds through seond and old growth forests and along Fern Passage. It's within 10 minutes of Prince Rupert so easy to access. The Rapids were in between tide changes but the view was beautiful. The trail is well maintained and many parts have boardwalks to protect... More

We did the walk in the pouring rain and while we couldn't take as many pictures as we would have, it was still a wonderful hike in a west coast rainforest. The rapids themselves were hard to really see well but the hike along the lower water areas were beautiful. The walk itself had many different terrains from the rainforest... More

This is a great little enjoyable rainforest walk with some excellent views. The rapids can only been seen during tide changes which were weren't fortunate to catch but we would still do the walk again rapids or not.

Great walk through temperate rainforest. Have to pick your time for the rapids to see the change in direction.

Well groomed trail that forms a loop and is very scenic. It's a bit noisy at first as it follows along the highway, but then descends into the rainforest and goes along the water. When we walked it it was very busy, and we could see why as it is an easy walk of about 5 Kilometers.

Hard packed gravel - excellent walking conditions - need to be in reasonable condition and used to walking up hill. However you can take your time and enjoy the trees and under growth. You may want binoculars to see the rapids more clearly.(or telephoto lens)

This was a lovely walk through cool forests on a boiling hot day. Very well kept trail path, easy to follow. Big car park if you drive there but also on the bus route. You can catch the bus outside Tourist Info/Museum in Prince Rupert (take the timetable as a rough guide rather than exact times of buses so be... More
