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

The first few hundred metres are quite noisy from the industrial plant and the ferry but once you get past that stretch, this is an easy walk along the water overlooking Nanaimo. There are a couple of staircases, once in particular might be challenging if...More

A great walk along the water. The walk is varying terrain and there are lots of sea life to look along the water.

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.

This was a surprisingly wonderful walk....especially if you love the ocean. It wasn't too long...between 5 and 6km....but the trail winds through a hardy forest and opens to some wonderful views of Nanaimo and the ocean as well as the Duke Point Ferry terminal....we saw...More

The only negative is that as tourists we found it extremely confusing to find out way to this wonderful "park". HINT: Take Cedar Road exit East off of 1 under the overpass. And make sure you really go over your maps if your data is...More

This is one of my favourite hikes in and around Nanaimo. It's not too busy, and you usually only run into a handful of people even on a shiny day. You also get a nice view of Nanaimo and have the opportunity to get some...More

This short walk park is great! It feels like Monterey California with large rocks and windswept beaches. However it is also safe for accompanied kids.

Jack Point Park is a spectacular 5 km hiking look. Well worth the drive. The trail is well used by hikers and on-leash dog walkers. Most of it is easy, however, there are three sets of stairs (30-60 steps). There are multiple access points to...More
