Enjoyed this hike, 3 hours fairly steady to go out and back, moderate difficulty but fine for most people. Some interesting forest segments, marred a little by a couple coastline vistas along the way that are rather industrial looking, but that is also reality. Be sure and read the plaque at the trailhead about the Seymour Narrows engineering work in the 1950’s, it makes your final end-of trail view much more meaningful.

Two things to know
1-there is a trail fork right at the end, the left side goes up a big staircase. You may be tired and want to skip it, DON’T, the view is way better than than the trail forking right. In 10 minutes, you can see both anyway.
2-this hike is nice, but Elk Falls waterfall and suspension bridge was shorter and more impressive if you are only going to have time for a single hike in Campbell River.

Moderate difficult trail with numerous ups and downs. There are some steep sections and lost of rocks and roots. The views at the end are nice and a great place to sun yourself and enjoy a lunch before the 2.78 mile hike back. We averaged about 30 minute miles in both directions.

This is an intermediate level hike with lots of ups and downs. Well worth the effort with beautiful views of the water and mountains. There is also a nice little beach to visit when the tide is out.

Nice hike. Very hot when we did this but much of trail is shaded:)
And the view was truly beautiful. Would recommend it for sure. Took us 1 hour and 10 minutes each way at a reasonable pace. But give yourself 3 hours return to stay at the top and enjoy the view a while

Well kept and very nice location on a remote bay just outside Campbell River. If your lucky you can see the Orca's swim by!

The hike is abit challenging but well worth the time and effort. The trail is well marked . Looking at how narrow it is you wonder how the cruise ships get through

We spend a couple of hours here in the morning. Didn't actually complete the entire trail as we needed to be back in time for another trip in the afternoon, but even so we enjoyed the walk among the trees with lovely fews over the water from different points. It was very different from the walking trails we had been on in Tofino and Ucluelet as negotiating the path took a little more effort! I suppose it was much more "natural" with just the odd area benefitting from bridges and manmade paths etc. Really added to the enjoyment however and it was one of my favourite activities on our holiday. Would definitely recommend it and suggest that anyone visiting make sure to wear good footwear! No flip flops here! ;-)

This is an excellent trail with a big pay off. Wear the right gear, bring water and don't rush and all will be well.

As tourists we are not quite sure how to act with the wildlife in Canada and what to expect if we were hiking, so we searched for a guided hiking tour. We were very happy to find out that Campbell River Whale Whatching Tours also offered a guided hinke to Ripple Rock as from July 1st. My husband and I are proud to say that we were the first customers who experienced this hike. Steve (Stephen Gabrysh) was a perfect guide who told us a lot about the trees and wildlife and Tamya as the second guide was also very helpful. The hike took us five hours including a delightful lunch on the top. We were very happy that Steve took some time to draw our attention to special trees and animals, so we could get our breath, since we did not trained for it and come from a very flat country ;-)
However we made it and the views we had were very beautiful. Although I am afraid of hights, it was not scary at all. We really enjoyed this hike and can recommend it to you. If you are unexperienced hikers or from another country than Canada, ask Campbell River Whale Whatching for the Ripple Rock Guided Hikes.

My husband, myself & our 6 year old twins completed this hike last week. The trail is well maintained and even after a rainy day, wasn't too slippery. We hiked at the twins' pace, stopping often to look at slugs, snails, frogs, snakes, etc... taking us 1.5 hours each way. I was hesitant to do this hike with young kids based on other reviews, but am posting this to provide info for other families. While my boys were the youngest on the trail that day, they weren't the only kids and had no issues completing this hike. Definitely worth it - beautiful rain-forest, views, and of course that ultimate view of the Seymour Narrows.
