About 3 km one way through the rainforest. Neat to see the whirlpools and feeding birds. But be prepared for the hike. There's a nice new museum near the trailhead - but it is often closed.

Be prepared for a good long hike. But it is more than worth it once you get there. Stop at the musem and check this out too. They might even have the schedule for the rapids there. This will give you the best viewing times....More

Skookumchuck means “strong or turbulent waters" and this is exactly what you'll find here. Check the local tide tables to plan your arrival when tidal flows are at their peak. Remember to factor in 45 minutes of walking from the parking lot.

not easy to get to, but if you are a white water kayaker it is a mecca, if you hit the tides right for the standing wave. inquire at vancouver or squamish kayak shops first if you are unsure when to go

I’m answering my own question since I just visited. We couldn’t find the answer beforehand anywhere online so I thought it might be helpful to have it in the Q & A. The first part of the trail is on a private gravel road... More

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
