Beautiful hike

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.

A not too difficult trail, Butze rapids is great for the varying terrain. It turns from lush forest to little Dr Suess Bonsai trees as you go along - if you venture off the trail down into the tidal zones, you can see everything from starfish to sea cucumbers - just make sure you go when the tide is low...

This 5 km trail makes for a gorgeous hike through coastal forest, swamp, and even beach. There are numerous interpretive signs for those wishing to learn more about the local flora and lots of benches, picnic tables, and lookouts for those wishing to take in the scenery.

This was a beautiful hike! As photographers, we spent a few hours taking pics when the trail really shouldn't have taken that long at all. The trail was quite busy, but everyone was very friendly. Glad we stumbled across it!

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.
