Beautiful spot! Nothing quite like it in the Vancouver area with marshes, hidden coves, and First Nation interpretive history all accessible via the one 4 km trail. We only wished the hike was longer! Definitely wear solid footwear as there are some rocky areas especially...More

We've done this hike before and decided it was something easy and relaxing to do before we headed to the ferry terminal. The first thing to note is the parking lot is tiny with enough spaces for about 10 cars, so if you want a...More

The hike to smugglers cove is well paved and worth the trip. On your way you pass through some wetlands (look for the beaver builds and there are some snakes in the grass to be seen). Once you reach the cove do not go back...More

Smuggler cove is a beautiful spot on the Sunshine Coast. It’s a great place to take ur dog for a walk on a leash. The end of the trail brings u to the ocean. U see pristine water and the views are breathtaking!

What a beautiful provincial park this is! There is a small car park which might make it a bit difficult for travellers with those huge coach-sized camper vans but we were travelling by car so not a problem. The board walks across the ponds are...More

I love kayaking in here. Lots of interesting marine life, including fish, birds, otter, mink, starfish and more. The walk is great. We always bring out of town visitors here to share our piece of paradise.

Through the woods, on boardwalks over swamps, up rocky trails, up to scenic viewpoints. Lots to see on this hike. Can be a bit challenging with big steps, ups/downs in the less-groomed section, but still good for less-experienced hikers.
