Wow .. beautiful trails and fantastic kayakers on the skookumchuck rapids. I have never seen anything like it. Breathtaking and definitely worth the 4 km trek in to view it. Take water to drink as there is nothing along the trail ...

Great hike, scenic views. Suggest you get in early before the crowds arrive. We were heading back out just at peak flow times.

The walk in is part of the attraction - a lovely mossy forest on the way in - we didn't time it exactly but it was a hot day when we went so we were walking only at a moderate pace and I guess it took about 45 mins or so. If you want to see the high tide waves, go the the path on your right (there will be a sign post about 30 mins into the walk)

Wear something sturdy on your feet - we had hiking boots on, and whilst these are not necessary for the hike or even really for once you get to the rocks - they did provide great grip, as the rocks were wet and slippery, we saw people slip and slide and one poor lady broke her leg after slipping on the rocks.
Anyway on a more positive note, at the high tide there were loads of guys on the little kayaks - it was a lot of fun watching them - they certainly have some skill and like their adrenaline.
There is a public toilet at the entrance at the carpark and one about 10 mins from the high tide viewing spot.

Long hike for older people. Was about 3 miles in and 3 miles out. Over somewhat difficult terrain. I loved it and trail ran the 3 miles in, and met my wife at the rapids and we walked back.
