  • An easy mostly flat walk through the forest with exceptional views along the way. Good for all levels of ability and easy access with a small parking area at the trail head.  more »
  • Beautiful place to smell the salt air and take a stroll along the Pacific Ocean. Really enjoyed the scenery.  more »
  • Was a beautiful walk through the marsh to the coast. Lots of great photo opportunities along the way. Can get down to the water if your willing to climb some rocks. We completed this trip with our 3 1...  more »
  • My dog and I had tons of fun climbing around the cove. Gorgeous views. You can take a long time exploring or do a quick loop.
  • A gorgeous place to visit. Well trended and accessible hiking trials lead you to pristine BC postcard perfect views. Informative placards dot the trails giving you informative tidbits on the local area and history of the cove.
  • Lovely little walk over boardwalks and through the woods up to the cove, with beautiful little moss-covered stone islands with a bit of shrubbery.
  • The cove is peaceful and calm. One will have to walk through the wetlands (which I find a little creepy) in order to get to the cove. But the effort is so worth it. Ideal to laze around for an afternoon.
  • A beautiful park with amazing views and easy trails. Main trail is very well groomed and easy to walk (possible to even push a more rugged stroller/buggy/wheelchair on it). Beyond the main trail (where you need to go for the really good views) the trail transitions to a more moderate walk on an established trail. Can be muddy and rocks/roots can be slippery in the rain. Walked every inch of trail in the park (with lots of stops to enjoy the scenery/relax as well a explore some of the rocky islands) and was back to my car in about 1.5 - 2 hours - very easy to explore in a short amount of time while traveling through. Definitely worth a visit if you are on the Sunshine Coast. One of my new favourite places..
