Skookumchuck falls are a great phenomena to see, but I suggets finding the right tides to go, Medium is nice, but the XL tides are much more interesting. The walk there is easy.

We recently went for the hike here into the Skookumchuck rapids with some friends from off the Coast. It is a lovely walk, without any steep climbs or hard parts on it. As you begin the hike there is a bakery where they serve wonderful...More

This is a easy hike but a bit long for younger kids. Takes about 45 minutes on way. To see the greatest rapid, make sure you check the tides time before coming here!

Good clearly marked trails lead to the narrows. Two end points. One has a nice viewpoint to see the overall. The other is right by the narrows by the rushing waters

A beautiful, relatively easy hike of 8 Km ( return) on a trail through the West coast rain forest. Wonderful views of moss covered, old growth trees, & vegetation. The trail opens up to the spectacular view of Skookumchuuck narrows & one cannot fail to...More

It’s a choice of what you want to see. The ebb tide provides huge whirlpools as the water rushes to escape Sechelt Inlet through the narrows. The flood tide brings out Kayaks, Surfers and one would question their sanity trying to wrestle the incoming waters....More

The rapids were flowing at over 13 knots. This made for a spectacular show with massive whirlpools and tidal falls.

Easy walk through the woods, takes about 40-50 minutes. Time your walk to match the tidal change for the best views. We were fortunate to have surfers demonstrating their "stuff" so we had an enjoyable show as well. Great place for picture taking.

Easy to follow trail through the west coast rain forest. Went to both look outs which had beautiful views. Bring water with you and plan 2 1/2 - 3hrs a least. Would bring a picnic next time.

I was there about 2 hours before max high tide and the standing wave had already formed at the right hand view point and people were surfing it in kayaks, so it's definitely good to watch any time from -2 to +2 hours of high... More

No benches but lots of big rocks,logs and soft moss to sit on. We had a small backpack with us and took a piece of foam to sit on. We brought our lunch and ate it at the rapids which gave us a good rest before heading back... More

There is no camping there but Egmont is close by as is Klein Lake where my husband and daughter usually camp.
