Easy one-hour loop and a great introduction to the trail. Beautiful views of the ocean and rocks and there are always eagles to watch.

A fantastic short loop overlooking the rocky Pacific shoreline. Lots of well placed view points - don't forget your camera and binos. It's a perfect trail for a morning run/hike if you're staying at the Cabins!

This is one of the best attractions in the area. It's a great hike with lots of amazing vista lookout points. There's history, scenery, nature, and more. Be prepared for stormy weather and you can enjoy the trail any day of the year.

This is a must do for anyone coming to the West side of Vancouver Island. It is an easy hike that most can do, unless disabled. Even a wheelchair, however, can be accommodated to see a great view or two without going the whole route....More

A part of the Pacific Rim Park area that often gets overlooked. The polar opposite of long beach: rugged, undulating, long black fields or rock that like volcanic in nature. Careful getting too close to the edge though-tried some casting off the rocks and the...More

What a wonderful description you provided of the area! Thanks for your Coast Smart tip as we do not recommend venturing out on to the rocks as the waves are highly unpredictable. Please do visit us again soon.

We walked the lighthouse loop. This is supposed to take 45 mins. We just kept stopping to look at the views. Just remarkable. I think we were there for a little over 90 mins. We could have taken longer. Jaw dropping vistas. Crashing waves. And...More
