Enjoyed our walk alongside the ocean with good walking trail at Jack Point near Duke Point across from downtown Nanaimo. Smell of the salt in the air looking after tidal changes, heron fishing and eagles above. Good walking shoes required and mobility to go up...More

With the Nanaimo River Estuary on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other side, nothing equals the experience. The water washed sandstone rocks with pools of water house much marine life. At certain times of the year, you can see the local Aboriginals...More

Great trail. Perfect view of Nanaimo and surrounding area. Check the ferry schedule if you plan on making the curve to the other side. The fuel exhaust could cause a headache if you are sensitive, like me.

Yes, there are handrails. If you are worried about stability, be aware that if you do the loop at the end, the 'return' section is over slightly uneven rocks that can be slippery if it's wet.
