This was a fun hike but I wouldn’t call it easy. You should bring water, snacks, and comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots. The hike is 10 miles, and park rangers from Canada and USA lead the hike at a walking pace discussing prominent natural...More

This day hike is led by Canadian and U.S. park rangers 2x a week during the summer, and is very informative. You have to purchase the one way ferry ticket in advance. Passports are required.
