We really enjoyed hiking out to see the rapids. Make sure you hit when the tides are running. The trail is well maintained, and there are picnic spots.

This is an excellent trail, well marked and full of interesting terrain. The path is really well maintained and the loop takes you through a variety of interesting vegetation, ultimately taking you down to the rapids

Many towns have a local hike popular with locals and visitors, this is Prince Ruperts. A pleasant, flat, easy 5km hike just out of town, pleasant woodland and river. We missed the bus so it was a $12 cab ride and about an hour downhill stroll back to town. A nice thing to do if you gave time to kill... More

This was a lovely little hike that doesn't take too long (1h-1h30 depending on how often you stop to take pictures) , is gorgeous all the way through and has stunning vistas of the islands when the trees open up towards the bottom of the hike. There are signs for bear & wolf warnings and I was alone but sang... More

Nice views. A few good hills and a bit of a hike but worth it on a nice day. Where your runners and bring water.

Well maintained path, great view of the rapids. Close to town. We were able to push a stroller all the way no problem, couple of spots were a bit of a slog. Worth it though.
