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.

My husband and I are in our mid 60s and although we were tired by the time we trekked in and back out it was one of our favourite things we did on our trip. The rapids were not at their highest but were considered large+. It was fun to rest and observe the kayaker, but it was the hike... More

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.

Excellent hike, even on a showery April day. The colours and the shadows and shapes of the rain forest are very attractive. The trail is well maintained and signed. The opportunities for great photos are unlimited. The amazing feature of the tide coming in and out of Georgia Strait and the Jervis Inlet, through the narrows, is inspiring.

Hiked to the Narrows three times over three years. Once during a super high tide and all three were spectacular experiences.

I have been coming here my whole life. Time is a factor in seeing such an amazing phenomenon. This is something you HAVE to see while visiting the coast on British Columbia. This Is the true meaning of our provincial slogan "Super Natural British Columbia". The hike is for most people, there are some hills, and a pit toilet where... More

Bring your hiking shoes. It is quite the trek to the falls. We went when it was super hot and I wasn't expecting it to be such a long trek. I guess that is because I didn't convert my kilometers to miles accurately so that's on me :) Would totally do it again.

It was a lovely day in December when we hiked to the narrows. A nice walk through the woods on a well defined path with very little incline. It took about an hour each way. We loved the views upon arrival. It had snowed recently and the mountains were beautiful. We planned our hike according to the tide tables hoping... More

It was a wet windy weekend but the walk through the enchanted west coast forest was worth it. And the arriving a the rapids made it even better. For "old folks" like us an hour in and an hour out. Plan accordingly.
