A lovely walk through the woods! The rain forest was just amazing! Beautiful huge trees with moss and ferns growing all over. A very nice walking trail. I'd say about a little under half was about level. The rest of the walk was at a slight grade with a bunch of short "not too steep" hills closer to the rapids.... More

Time it with the tides and you won't be disappointed. An incredible amount of moving water, and if you're lucky enough to catch a few friendly kayakers, it's an amazing site!

This is an easy hike/walk, takes about 50 minutes each way and that's with a husband who is waiting for a new hip! Quiet and peaceful.

Easy trek thru the woods and go for the North view - turn right at the end. We should have taken a picnic as it's about an hour walk.

We had a spare 1/2 day and decided to walk to the rapids from Egmont to kill time. We were so glad we made the effort as the rapids were really amazing, and we loved watching the crazy kayakers playing in the white water. The trail was further than we first thought and was quite hard work as there is... More

It's a wonderful walk to the rapids from Egmont through the rain forest. The best time to visit is when it's a very high tide as the rapids are fastest in the world I believe.

nice walk and great rapids, I would recommend one of the things to do when you are here, stop at the bakery on your way out or in, also check out the museum across the street. Ideal time to see is when the rapids are at max but slack water is also nice if you might get a chance to... More

I went in when the tide table showed extra large flood. I arrived an hour before the tide chart said and stayed to watch the rodeo kayakers challenge the rapids. I brought supper with me so I leisurely enjoyed supper while watching very energetic men and women kayak the flood waters. Amazing! The hike in and out is very doable,... More

We were told this was the 2nd fastest tidal race in the world and it does not disappoint! Choose the tides with care using the published tables available on the web so that you get the best currents and this is an awesome spectacle - kayaks riding the waves and a ferocious current hurtling through the narrows. A brilliant mile... More

With big tide changes many people watch kayakers and surfers challenging the rapids doing stunts. Quite amazing ! Check it out on line.
