We planned our trip based on the tides. A must do if you visit. Should have brought a Lunch and stayed longer. Watched sea lions and seal frolic! And an underwater garden of anemones and seastars in tide pools. Plus the rapids were amazing.

you need to visit these rapids when it is high tide , the waves are immense and watching some stunt kayakers in the waves was amazing entertainment, their skill was stunning. Its a beautiful easy walk on good paths to the falls.

Great hike and the tides are fascinating. Lots of roots and rocks, so wear good shoes/boots. Visited both viewpoints and got different views from each. Check tide times before you leave.

A very nice trail takes you to the Narrows. Well laid out and very scenic. Did this with a walking cast on (wouldn't recommend that but I did it anyways!). The Narrows themselves were neat - but after seeing the Bay of Fundy, well.....

Plan on an hour hike/walk each way, at least 30 min at Narrows, and time to drop in at Cafe on return. The trail starts out deceptively groomed but later features roots and rocks - could be slippery after rain and visitors in flip-flops were...More

We made a nice hike to the skookumchuck narrows. It was about 4 km each way. The view at the narrow was nice, the hike was maybe just as good.

This is a pretty doable hike for the average hiker with a bit of a challenge in one stretch. It is well worth checking out both view points at the end of the trail. It is important to watch your steps. At one point on...More

Having been to quite a number of the parks now I can say that this was not my favourite, only because it was a long, hot walk to the Narrows and I ended up tripping up over a couple of the larger tree roots +...More

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
