Route description

Through the forest to the Pacific Ocean

The tour starts at the parking at the end of Marine Drive. Follow the signposts through the forest. Along the way you will hit some observation points where a great view across the ocean will emerge and you'll frequently glimpse waves hitting the shore. An incredible sight. 

First ascending then back into the forest

Keep following the path until you reach Forbes Street. This trail leads continuously alongside the shore. Next you'll have to hike uphill for a while until you get to a sports field next to a parking. Walk across the parking and keep following the signposts into the forest.

Back to the start

Hike further through the woods, cross a couple of streets and eventually you'll get back to where you started this tour.

 

Sturdy shoes necessary

Where to eat

Don't forget to take some food and drinks as the trail provides the proper backdrop for a picnic.

Highlights of the tour

Wild Pacific Trail offers a stunning view across the pacific ocean. Sight the waves hitting the shore with a massive speed and breath in the fresh sea air.
