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.

  • Lovely trail through dense forest with fantastic views on the go. Took a lunch break on grassy bay, the day couldn't get any better.  more »
  • 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!
