We missed the rapids - wrong time in the tidal cycle. But its a very nice 5k nature walk, well worth taking anyway.

Great trail only a few minutes from Prince Rupert. Views were great and if you time your hike right you can watch the rapids switch directions.

Recommended to us via our local B&B. Easy access via car or public transport. Allow upto a couple of hours and take a small picnic.

Had some time so decided to try the Butze Rapids trail. A nice hike of about 5.5 km. Good signage and well maintained trail.

The trail is gravel along with the little hills, so being around wheelchairs I wouldn't want to take a wheelchair along the trails. Hope this is of help.
