You might want to chalk this review up to a 48 year old with a bad knee but this walk was really hard on my knee and after killing my knee going up and down elevation the narrows are not that picturesque or cool at all. I guess for a good hike it is worth it and since it is... More

The hike to the rapids is great 40m to 60m each way and 20m-30m of visiting the tides. Easy hike but don't wear flip flops.On the way in stop at the Bakeshop, very good baking and from what I could tell great sandwiches.

It was worth the long walk to see the kayaks shooting the rapids. Wonderful little tea shop within a hundred yards of entering the rain forest. Hot/cold drinks and lovely bread and pastries

Nature at its most spectacular. It is a hike to get in and you should go when the tide is moving,so you can watch the kayakers do battle with the current of Roland Point.

The narrows were raging when we arrived. We checked out both views and liked them both equally, though the left branch (the north view) is closer and was busier.

Here is what we discovered over several hikes to the Skookumchuck Rapids: The hike is so awesome that it would be worth it even if the rapids were not at the other end. It is a good one-hour hike from the parking lot to the rapids. The trail is wide and relatively flat as it winds through the forest, which... More

For the first few minutes you're walking along a gravel road past a few scattered residences and the amazing Green Rosette Bakery. The trailhead is well marked, it is a relatively easy hour hike to the viewing point for the Skookumchuck Narrows. The trail is very easy to follow, there are a few hilly sections, but the scenery is worth... More

If you're looking for a bit of exercise to see a spectacular sight, this is it. Well worth the exercise.

Don't waste time hiking to the Skookumchuck rapids unless it is at MAXIMUM tide level or you will see only a slowly rising body of water, nothing interesting

Not the greatest explanation at the very start of the hike but once we got moving it became obvious where we were to go. The hike was not challenging due to how well kept the trail is. Once we were at the actual narrows we enjoyed the amazing site of the tide rolling through the narrows and into the inlet.... More
