“Just past the lighthouse on the Wild Pacific Trail, watch the sunset.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Dianne at our hotel recommended that by the lighthouse would be a great place to watch the sunset and she was right. We grabbed our backpack, a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses and went in search of the sunset. We ended up a little ways down the trail from the light house right before the trail takes a turn to the right. It was great viewing of the waves and optimum viewing of the sunset. It was a lovely way to spend Valentine's Day.

“Explore the rocky shore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

The lighthouse itself is more utilitarian than picturesque, but clambering around on the rocks in front (against posted advice, I'll admit, but with ample opportunity for sound footing) was a wonderful exploration. Fog horn sounds in low visibility - not an ear-blasting noise, but ever-present when the weather's socked in.

“Hike it at night.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Have made several trips around this scenic, 2.5 kilometre trail over the years and the vistas never get boring. The trail itself is well maintained and well marked.
To shake things up, hike the trail at night with only a headlamp on. The twisted, weather stunted trees become very eerie and "Sleepy Hollow" like under the wash of your light against a pitch black background. Bring you camera for some amazing pictures. Who knows, when you review your pictures back at your lodgings, there may be some eyes in the darkness glowing back at you.
