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

Had a great hike in to Skookumchuck Narrows to see the Flood Tide. We got there a little too early to see the true XL waves, but the hike was great - a little more difficult than a "walk" as many of the guide books/magazines said. Beautiful place!

The start of this 6-8 km. hike is a bit banal (about .5km of road through the woods) but gets better and better. More a hilly "walk" than a "hike" through beautiful rainforest ending at the ocean (Sechelt Inlet), with an optional twisty 1km to the second lookout (Roland Point). But I would not recommend a baby stroller (what are... More

This hike/walk was a fairly easy hike/walk and most people could be able to handle it. It was such a beautiful and majestic place with lush vibrant green forest. My little yorkie loved it. It was off season and fairly quiet but did pass a couple of groups. Once we reached skookumchuck narrows we sat and wait for the tide.... More

Okay my title may be a little over the top, but bare with me. My fiance and I are both from Downtown Vancouver and decided to go to the Sunshine Coast for a relaxing getaway from the city. We heard Skookumchuck was a great walk through the forest, so we headed out to Egmont to check it out (about 1... More

Great rainforest hike through old moss covered trees. Trail is very well kept. One hour in and the treat at the end was the fierce rapids (tide timed right) and enjoyable time watching kayakers battle the rapids. Lots of purple starfish clinging to the rocks to enjoy. After the trail walk, went out on a zodiac boat ride to see... More
