This a nice local hike on a well maintained trail that can be used in all weather. Very safe and you only need minimal essentials.

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.

We missed the rapids - wrong time in the tidal cycle. But its a very nice 5k nature walk, well worth taking anyway.

Great trail only a few minutes from Prince Rupert. Views were great and if you time your hike right you can watch the rapids switch directions.

The trail is gravel along with the little hills, so being around wheelchairs I wouldn't want to take a wheelchair along the trails. Hope this is of help.
