The level, easy trail follows an old logging rail line through the forest parallel to the water. Along the way there are a variety of old logging machines.There are lots of interesting signs about both the plants and also the old equipment.

Beautiful scenery, old logging equipment, other trail walkers and very peaceful. You can see Vancouver Island and Texas a Island as well as Harwood Island. Wonderful sights for the whole family including Willingdon Beach . THERE is a water park there as well as playground.

Enjoyed a nice stroll along the trail looking at all the historical logging equipment and the unusual tree formations. The beach can also be accessed at several locations.

I found this route across town to be a wonderful experience... many "stations" to sit or read about forestry, and artifacts for viewing placed along the trail. Wide smooth trail, groomed and clean, and Sitka Spruce! Everyone friendly on this safe trail.

The trail at Willingdon Beach is pretty flat, but it's a beauty for running. The surface is even and springy and, of course, you have the forest and the ocean for company. It's a great way to start or end your day.

A beautiful trail in the forest beside the water in Powell River. Amazing trees, green mosses, interesting old machinery along the way. We biked it but intend to walk the trail.

This great trail is located within the city limits and adjacent to a campground. The trail is fairly level and is wheelchair accessible. You are walking right along the ocean shore in a fully treed environment. A great place for stroll with friends or family....More

30 minutes if you stroll along. You can add if you cross the road at the north end.
