Stepped in Haida lore, Tow Hill is a magnificent volcanic plug formed from eruptions of molten lava some 2 million years ago. It is, unquestionably, the most distinguishing geographic feature of North Beach and Naikoon Provincial Park. Besides its awe-inspiring natural beauty, Tow Hill and...More

Even if it's misty, it's still worth the uphill walk to the top of Tow Hill. Not technical at all - entire route is laden with boardwalks so you can wear your fancy shoes if you like. It is definitely uphill though so bring a...More

Well worth the drive to north beach. The trail to both the blowhole and lookout are great. Moderate walk to both in just over 2 hours with time taken to explore the beach. If you drive across the river and you're not in a rental...More

This is the third year leading a group to visit Tow Hill. From the entrance with two Haida poles, the trail is level to the start of the shingle-clad board walk to the top. Part way up you reach an overlook that sweeps north to...More
