Butze Rapids Park and Trail, Prince Rupert

(4.6/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Experience Butze Rapids Park and Trail for an easy-going route with the reward of seeing the impressive reversing tidal rapids endemic to the area. The 5 km (3.1 mi) looping trail should take no longer than 2 hours to walk, and the low level of challenging concourse makes it ideal for beginner walkers or those with minimum fitness experience. Trek through a variety of terrains and environments including old-growth forest, swamps, and wetlands. Wear appropriate footwear, as some of the trails' boardwalks can be slippery. Many hikers stop to overlook the rapids from the viewing platform on the main trail.
