This trail is on the outskirts of Prince Rupert and is well laid out with a good track underfoot. It winds through typical BC forests and makes its way towards the river where you will eventually find a lovely viewing platform to see the rapids....More

A pleasant 5 km walk through a rain coast forest that touches down to the beach. It has very smooth trails which are well maintained & there are several places for both resting & picnicking. Some lovely views but you should check tidal charts in...More

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and to dress for the weather! You want to plan to walk this trail when the tide is changing so that you get to view the rapids. If the tide is already slack...you'll still be in for a treat!...More

This is a very scenic walk/hike, and I'd highly recommend it. One very interesting aspect is the reversing falls - we watched kayakers trying to go up the falls, with some success. Enjoy!

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.

It is not a hard walk at all. It is beautiful through the forest. I agree with the above comment about parking on the highway and walking down the path.
