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.....

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

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 highly recommend this place for all visitors in Sunshine Coast. The hike was easy at first but the trail gets a little uneven towards the Roland view point. Despite that, the view is impressive and well worth it! Make sure you check the timing...More

Allow extra driving time and walking time! Google maps made it look like a shorter drive than it was. The walk from parking lot to Narrows again took longer, allow a solid hour unless you are power walking. Once there, relax and enjoy. Watch the...More

Check the tides timing (they are in every brochures in the area) and enjoy the one hour hike to the Narrows. Well worth it! the trail can be busy as everyone tries to catch the high tide time. Roland Point gets closer to the whirlpools....More

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
