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.

We enjoyed the hike and the views along the way and it was fun to watch the kayakers navigate the rapids at the end. A very fun day in the forest and by the sea!

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
