A great way to spend a few hours walking through the park. Sadly though too many pet dogs and irresponsible dog owners who allow their dog to be off leash and not pick up the waste. You will never see wildlife here while they allow it.

Most of the people on this trail are locals. Joggers and lots of dog walkers. Pretty trail that will give you a good feel for the rain forest. Very well maintained and in excellent condition.

Not far from town and clearly waymarked a quiet trail with lovely views and nearby bald eagles to see. The tidal falls are a remarkable natural phenomenon.

This is an excellent trail, great views and smells wonderful. But this with limitations on walking there are parts that are a challenge. My only recommendation for this trail is more benches for taking a break along the way.

I came for a hike with my wife and my 12 year old daughter. We were not disappointed. There are wonderful big trees, and we timed if perfectly to see the rapids at there highest. It was uncrowded and we sat at the water's edge on boulders or logs a number of times to just relax. What a nice, relaxing... More

Let's just say as a history enthusiast this offers NO history NO interesting areas other than the rapids and NO detail about anything that it used to be

This hike was about 5 km and took me about 1 1/2 hours. It goes through forest and open areas with good views of the Butze rapids. All along the trail there are signs explaining the flora and fauna of the area. A nice and easy hike.

This part of the west coast is a temperate rain forest. Nothing shows this better than a hike in Butze Park. It is beautiful and just a little arduous. Well worth the effort. It will impress you. Also, if you're looking for a nice run, make the loop.

I did this hike on a beautiful, warm, sunny morning between 9:30 a.m. and noon. I caught the #60 bus going to Port Edwards right in front of the Museum of Northern British Columbia @ 9:05 a.m. I believe this is the first bus of the day. It took about 15 minutes to get there a only cost around $2.... More

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.
