Located 15.5 km's from Campbell River the ripple rock trail was a perfect way to spend a sunny day. This 4km (1 1/2- 2 hours each way) hike will take you down to a beautiful beach before you start the climb up in to the forest for views that will stop you in your tracks time and time again. As you scale your way up and into the tree line you would never know Ripple Rock is the home of the largest non nuclear blast. Once in to the tree line you pass thu old growth forest and there are 2 great lookouts which we found perfect for some lunch. The last part of the trail was a little bit of a grind but was well worth it once you come out to the stunning view of Seymour Narrows and Quadra Island. I would recommend this hike to anyone in the area for even a day.
