Nice easy hike to the beach. At low tide you can walk a bit of the beach. The best part of this park is the sitting lady falls. If you only have 30 minutes walk the 200m down the path to the falls.

Great park with great water access. Nice walks and takes you right out of the city . Need a car to get there or long trip by public transit.

Rushing water, moss covered trees, rugged beach and scenic views give a hint of this easily accessible place of beauty and charm. This place is a gem and a mecca for dog lovers and dogs.

If you plan to go to the beach-side of Witty's, expect an army of annoying kids to be there sharing the beach with you. There are better options for adults. With that said, the trail is magnificent, excellent views, cool ocean breeze, what more could...More

The trail is fairly steep in places and was a struggle for Grandma. The steps are covered with wire mesh that will prevent slipping when wet although the path was dry when we visited. The bridges across the ravine and creek as well as the...More

If it's a little zodiac, you wear a float suit. If it is a larger vessel, you do not need a lifejacket. My cousin and aunt from Manitoba highly recommend the zodiac tour for the best experience!
