About the Park

There are over 5 kilometres of trails in the park. The trails pass through a variety of unique and scenic ecosystems from a lush Douglas fir, Cedar and Alder forest that give way to a sprawling meadow and marshland, then transitions to an oceanside walkway. Many visitors also enjoy strolling along the massive white sand flats of Rathtrevor Beach.
