“Day Hikes and Nice Scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

The Park offers some very pretty, scenic views of ocean coastline, and coastal forests. The Long Beach Unit of the park only offers a few, short, easy day-hikes. While not strenuous, the number of steps and stairs along some of the trails can get the blood pumping, if you push yourself. Parks Canada put on a very informative presentation on Coastal Wolves, while we were there, but sadly... we were never in the right place at the right time, and didn't get to see any wolves...

“tempered rainforest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

tempered rainforest is a must see. You cannot go to Tofino and not enter the forest. Ok, you have to take a daypass at the parking lot, but the forest is just some place.

“Stunning views”

Simply gorgeous views. Quite an easy trail along the shore -- even for 65 year old legs.
