Located just outside the town of Campbell River, this picturesque trail series meanders along the Campbell and Quinsam Rivers through popular fly-fishing areas. Waterfalls, beaver ponds, salmon enhancement spawning channels, and various viewpoints along the Campbell and Quinsam Rivers are just some of the highlights of this gentle nature walk. While the bulk of these trails are located within Elk Falls Provincial Park, access via the John Hart Generating Station provides another alternative to extend your walk. Be prepared for the sights and sounds of hydroelectric activity.

No problems with this trail, but I only walked the short path to the falls viewing area (from the parking lot).
