  • This is a lovely trail that follows the ocean. Kids enjoyed it, some moderate hills back up from the ocean, but nothing too challenging. Dogs welcome on leash.  more »
  • Nice forest walks and a beach to relax on too. Love walking here. You can take a short walk or wind through the trails a bit more for a longer walk  more »
  • First we did coupland loop to the beach, hike down to beach steep and moderately strenous. I don't think it was the Don apps trail. Saw some seals at beach. Second we took the swamp loop to Meldas Mar...  more »

  • Very nice, quiet and large open spaces. Nice washroom facilities. All in all a great place to stay.
  • A nature park close to everything Seal Bay has a wild beauty. Some of the trails down to the ocean are steep and I wouldn't suggest doing if you have balance issues unless you have a walking partner. However there are other trails through the forest that go over stream and gorges via bridges that are smooth and easy walking. Although they advertise one path as wheelchair accessible, it is a gravel pathway that would make for a bumpy ride and not an easy push for the companion. Seals and eagles are a common sight from the beach.
  • Great trail we took our 1 and 2 year olds on the 10km loop. Nice trail for kids.
  • Great place for hikes! So many different levels of difficulty. From flat to steep, great for an afternoon walk to the beach or up into the forest. There is out houses along the beach side of the park.
  • Easy to navigate around first time visit, easy walk. Beautiful views.
