We went there on Jul 14. Egmont is a small town with 300 people. There is no garbage pick up service. If your garbage can not be recycled, you have to bring them outside of Egmont. Before you head out, you need to check the tide table for proper timing to view -XL or +XL. At -XL time, there will... More

The trail to the rapids is an easy 45 minute walk, there even is a coffee shop at the trail head. Make sure you time your visit correctly to experience the rapids, otherwise it may be a bit disappointing. Still a great view from the viewpoint.

First check for the biggest tide change while you are here - and then plan your arrival accordingly. Drive to Egmont and park at the "lot" (space for a few cars) and begin your journey down a residential gravel road. There is actually a bakery a short distance down this road - on the right It is a very charming... More

It took us about an hour to walk on the trail to the river. Mostly it was easy walking on a gravel road, then a gravel trail. The last third was a narrow parh with many roots and loose rocks. We'd checked the tide charts and arrived at a Flood time. Many kayakers were challenging the strong tidal waters. It... More

A wonderful light hike to a beautiful location. The hike is well sign posted and the trail is well maintained. The scenery is amazing.

Make sure you get to the end of the trail at the peak times. There is a board near the start of the hike that highlights the times of the peaks Allow 50 minutes for the hike For low tide go to the furthest point that the trail reaches. Hike is a little harder inbound than return but not bad... More

Easy walk (but not strollers suitable - final part is full of roots). Do not forget to stop for great smoothie and on the place home baked pastry. Cinamon rolls are delicious as well as banana bread and other.

First thing you want to do is check the tide charts for the Skookumchuck narrows. Watch for an XL or XXL. Plan to get there ahead of the peak tide to watch it build. The parking area is on the side of the road as you are entering the small community of Egmont. After you have parked your car and... More

There isn't a visitor's center, or much even a large parking lot here. There is only one marked trail at this park, and it leads from just outside the town of Egmont, to the Narrows. The Narrows is where the ocean gets funneled through a narrow inlet, causing the "ocean" to speed up and become somewhat turbulent. The most spectacular... More
