Pass of melfort story

Storm watching season!

Seasonal storms have been putting on a show, so bring a rain slicker or visit on a calm day after the storm to experience the frothy roar of massive waves.

Rocks are scoured clean by waves more powerful and fast than any human, so stay on the trail at all times.

Inspiring through Nature

Stay safe on the trail, waves are powerful

Click to learn moreFall and winter is a special time to enjoy this rugged coastline during powerful Pacific storms. Waves are very unpredictable, so do not walk off the trail even if the weather seems calm. The path is built as close as possible to the surf and viewpoints can bring you into the spray of larger waves. If the wind is gale force some trails and beaches may be closed. READ MORE>

Nature's voice is strong in this place if we listen. Whether you walk here every day or for the first time, observe the cascade of ecosystems as the trail showcases coastal forests, bogs, mudflats and the creatures that thrive here if we give them space. Please leave no trace of your visit and stay on the trail to protect the forest. Trails extend 8 kilometres along the coast plus side loops. Give yourself time to sit on a bench to watch birds and wildlife.
