Great trail to see the beautiful trees and foliage that make up the forest surrounding Prince Rupert. Very challenging trail and it is a great work out. On low tide the rapids are nice to see.

Only a few mlles out side of Prince Rupert, this temperate rainforest park is lush and green.The hiking trails and tidal rapids are truly beautiful. The trail has varied topography which includes dense temperate rainforest uplands, and boardwalks over lovely bogs, Some sections of the trail were more challenging than others and it was evident that many of the hikers...

It is a very long walk but worth it. There are couple of points that you need to reach to see the rapids. Since it a very long walk of around 5 Kms recommend that you carry some water and some snacks specially with kids. It is a very relaxing walk and exciting too. Please do not miss it.

this is a great way to spend a supper sunny afternoon. there are interpretative sighs that explain the vegetation and various habitats. i enjoyed just hanging out at the beach for lunch and watching all the wildlife.

I usually enjoy running Butze, the hills provide a good challenge for the calves. It is also a great trail for those who would like to walk and enjoy a leisurely scenic route with an option of having a pinic near the shore with picnic tables. Pet friendly is a big plus!

This is a lovely natural environment, full of photo ops. It has a lot of steep uphill and downhill aspects to the trails. My 20 something daughter loved it; I as a fit senior was rather winded by it. It took us about an hour and 15 minutes of brisk walking. We had an engagement right after, so there was... More

such a beautiful walk through a rain forest. The trails are in excellent condition; views amazing. Two different trails to choose from, or walk both.

On a bright sunny day we started down the gravel trail. Then without warning entered a world of moss and rain forest. We did not see the ebb tide, but did have lunch at the far end of the trail. It was a pleasure to see so many runners out for their daily exercise. We will be back.

If you want a nice walk this is great. Not too hard of a walk but also not too easy. Lots of different plants and trees to see. Also slugs!
