This is a beautiful walk through wonderful forests and along magnificent cliff edges overlooking the crashing waves. Yoi can just pick part of the trail too if the whole thing is too much. A must see if you visit Vancouver Island.

Absolutely breathtaking. Amazing views. Trail is very well maintained with numerous hike options. Multiple areas to leave the trail and sit on rocks with waves crashing around you. One of the highlights of our trip to the island!

The trail was very well maintained and there are lots of spots to stop and take in the beauty and snap photos. We stopped at the lighthouse and could see whales in the distance. There are different hike options for all ages/fitness levels.

Great views but cool wet weather. Dress warm and rain gear would be good. Bring camera and snacks. Dress in layers during cool season
