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

I am in pretty good shape, and the hike took 70 minutes in and 70 minutes out. On the way there were more than a few people that had found it too difficult. The rapids are just that, and unless you get there when the tide's ebb and flow are at the maximum, it's rather disappointing. Even at the right... More

One of the unusual spots on the planet, this should be on your to do list. It will take you about an hour to walk in and another hour to walk out, The difficulty is posted at level 2, what ever that means, but if you are in half decent shape you will enjoy the experience. Speaking of the walk,... More

I did this walk on a hot day in August and appreciated being in the woods the whole way. The path is clear and, although not crowded, was being enjoyed by all ages. I timed my walk for a change of tide, as recommended, and enjoyed both viewpoints at the end. I was hoping to get lunch at the bakery;... More

Great walk/hike with the family! The rapids are cool to watch especially when the kayakers are doing tricks & riding the waves at peak viewing times!

If you wish to go this 1 hour one way hike trail to see the rapids, I would suggest you'd better check the tide tables before your trip. Local information center or your hotel should be able to provide this table for you. Just to make sure when you are there, you are in the high tide window period. And... More

We saw the narrows at both high tide and low tide. Although both were impressive, the high tide was phenomenal! Hopefully you get a chance to see some kayakers in action. Well worth the short hike.

We ventured into the Skookumchuk Rapids with our 9 year old grand daughter this morning. It took us 50 minutes at a moderate pace to reach North Point to view the rapids. It was an X Large Ebb tide change. We arrived 30 minutes past the change but they were still very awesome to see, even 1 hour later. We... More

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
