easy and relaxing walk along large Trees and very nice meadows.At the ocean you can watch the incredible power of the ocean when the tide changes and how fast it goes from still water to roaring river water.

Beautiful walk through sitka spruce forest Fine vistas of the falls, which change directions with the tide. Sample of stunted wetland pines and firs. All in all, well worth the time. Wolf and bear warnings for pets.

NIce 2-3 hour hike. Lots of different things too see. We really liked the rain forest and turning over rocks on the beach too find crabs everywhere.

Beautifully built and maintained, offering a 2-hour circuit through a range of spectacular ecosystems. It is worth the time to enjoy both the rapids and the grassy bay. Great way to start or end a long day in the car.

A popular trail to get a 2.5 hour walk in, that went through a dried bog, mossy rainforest, to view reversible tidal rapids, and a grassy bay. Mostly easy with just enough ups and downs to feel exercised. Great for a family.

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
