Beautiful, even on a damp day. Easy walk, awesome waves. The only bathroom access is at the beginning of the trail, so make sure you use it😊

A great fairly easy hike to 3 beaches/coves. A new extension goes to Middle beach. Interesting trees and vegetation and view points along the way.

Nice walk through the woods. Was a few steep stairs for those not very mobile but quite easy for most. Was signs of bear activity. Brings you to a nice little beach. Always joyous to look at the beauty of nature contrasted against the stupidity...More

Beautiful network of well maintained trails. Note - if you want to beach trail, from the Community Centre parking lot, stay high and right. The wide, steeply sloping path that starts to the left is NOT it! Great for a couple hours in the woods,...More

Great area--just up the street from the Common Loaf Bakery. Just a few kilometers but covers diversified terrain from forest to rugged beach with caves. Do the full loop--wind up sauntering through town--just in time to hit the Shelter for a cold beer or tea...More
