Beautiful nature hike. So lush and well maintained. If you stop here on a cruise make sure to find a way to get there.

What a great walking/jogging path. Some areas are in need of upkeep/grooming but overall a great area. Too bad the signage has been damaged by vandals.

This is about an 1 1/2 hrs. walk with some slightly steep sections if you are not in good shape. We found it fairly easy ourselves. It is close to town and worth taking in.

Yes, there are taxis that will take you there. I think it was about $15 Canadian from the ship dock to the trail. You will have a lovely walk to the Rapids,,if I remember right it was about 30 min one way into the Rapids... More

The trail is gravel along with the little hills, so being around wheelchairs I wouldn't want to take a wheelchair along the trails. Hope this is of help.
