Ultimate Abyss Professional Review and Guide
"This trail is within the city of Nanaimo. The Ultimate Abyss takes its name from a huge fissure in the volcanic rock making up the ridge on which the trail travels. High above the Harewood Plains, the trail repeatedly crosses over this 10-20 cm (8-11 inches) opening. Mixing a high level of technical challenge with some exquisite views, this 4.72 km (2.83 miles) one-way ride offers equal potential as a quiet hike. The trail rolls along the western edge of an escarpment high above the Harewood Plains. It takes you through colorful stands of arbutus and offers views to distant mountains and the ocean. Few trails can mix high technical challenge with equally tremendous views."
