This is a lovely short hike. You can do the first part easily; it's flat and has access to a pebble beach. To get out into the rocky headlands, which are covered in Garry Oak, big firs and other tree species, you'll need to either...More

This is such a nice little walk. It's a nice flat walk along the spit to what used to be an island. The lagoon on one side and the ocean on the other. If you are so inclined and want to explore a little more...More
