Easy to follow trail through the west coast rain forest. Went to both look outs which had beautiful views. Bring water with you and plan 2 1/2 - 3hrs a least. Would bring a picnic next time.

Excellent hike, even on a showery April day. The colours and the shadows and shapes of the rain forest are very attractive. The trail is well maintained and signed. The opportunities for great photos are unlimited. The amazing feature of the tide coming in and...More

Hiked to the Narrows three times over three years. Once during a super high tide and all three were spectacular experiences.

Bring your hiking shoes. It is quite the trek to the falls. We went when it was super hot and I wasn't expecting it to be such a long trek. I guess that is because I didn't convert my kilometers to miles accurately so that's...More

It was a lovely day in December when we hiked to the narrows. A nice walk through the woods on a well defined path with very little incline. It took about an hour each way. We loved the views upon arrival. It had snowed recently...More

It was a wet windy weekend but the walk through the enchanted west coast forest was worth it. And the arriving a the rapids made it even better. For "old folks" like us an hour in and an hour out. Plan accordingly.

Definitely worth the stop off the beaten path. If you are traveling the sunshine coast, the 6km detour off the highway and 45 minute (4km) hike to the narrows is amazing. An easy hike, with little to no, elevation gain. Suitable for children and seniors...More

I was there about 2 hours before max high tide and the standing wave had already formed at the right hand view point and people were surfing it in kayaks, so it's definitely good to watch any time from -2 to +2 hours of high... More

No benches but lots of big rocks,logs and soft moss to sit on. We had a small backpack with us and took a piece of foam to sit on. We brought our lunch and ate it at the rapids which gave us a good rest before heading back... More
