Butze Rapids Park and Trail, Prince Rupert

4.6
#1 of 7 in Parks in Prince Rupert
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.

    We went in June 2017 this trail and could very enjoy this hike. There were even people on the road who have cut the roads free and cleaned!

    A lovely walk on a damp day through the forest with stunning views of the river and rapids. Would definitely go again.  more »

    We missed the rapids - wrong time in the tidal cycle. But its a very nice 5k nature walk, well worth taking anyway.  more »
