Tough wilderness routes, moderate riverside strolls and easy pathways into Cape Scott Provincial Park are all great hiking options in the Port Hardy area.
In town, join residents and their dogs while walking the lovely seawall beginning in Carrot Park.
Cape Scott and North Coast Trail
Cape Scott's magnificent beaches are pounded to golden sand by the Pacific. Various trails offer all levels of daytrip ease and/or multi-day challenge. Hikers can get here by shuttle bus or through privately arranged water taxis based in Port Hardy.
The trailhead to the Cape Scott Trail is in the San Josef Bay parking lot (reached via the unpaved Holberg Road, 60km/37mi west of town). Those seeking an easy 45-minute leg stretch can follow the wheelchair-accessible trail (note: some grades are steeper than the optimal grades for special needs access) out to San Josef's spectacular beach.
