Storm Season

Stay on the trail, waves are more powerful than any human

Fall 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. READ MORE>

One way traffic at the lighthouse loop is strongly advised during the pandemic, read more below for how to walk with respect to social distancing.

Covid-19 Best Practices

Together we can all do our part to have fun and stay safe!

Please walk the lighthouse loop counter-clockwise. Encouraging one way trail use will decrease cross traffic. Please PASS by stepping into VIEWPOINTS, do not block traffic flow. Alert users with kindness from a distance to agree where passing is safe (2 metres apart). Also avoid stepping on sensitive plants, find a gravel pullout. Keep dogs close to you on their leash. Joggers please jog in place until it is safe to pass. If the parking lot is full, come back later. Please keep 2 metres apart (the wing span of a bald eagle). If someone else is invading this space turn you back.

Nature is an incredible healer, so for our mental and physical health please respect our guidelines. Enjoy a virtual visit with our video series, our most recent episode is below.
