This walk takes you to the end of the peninsula where there is a small loop before you return back to the parking spot for cars. It took about 2 hours and was low difficulty if you don’t have mobility issues. Lumpy roots in places on the path and also a few stairs. Only muddy in one spot. We went on the stat holiday and there were lots of walkers and numerous dogs. Ended up walking over 5 km. The Fitbit hit 10,000 steps! Nice views. Didn’t see many critters other than dogs but a beautiful walk .
If you are looking for a nice way to spend an afternoon then Colliery Dam Park may be what you are looking for. The walking paths are wide and Jack Point/Biggs Park is a great place to go to catch those last rays of afternoon sun on a sunny day, any time of the year. Mt Benson casts its shadow over the trails at Westwood and Ammonite, so if you’re hoping for a walk in the sun and gorgeous views of the city, get yourself out to Biggs Park! It IS a bit of a drive (about 18-20 minutes from downtown Nanaimo), but so worth it, and you could combine your walk with a lunch or dinner at The Crow and Gate Old English Pub in Cedar.
This park is a hidden gem. It has a beautiful coastline to explore and is a great place for a dog walk, family outing or for a run. The park is of cultural significance to the local Snuneymuxw people and contains beautiful wood and rock carvings. Highly recommend to anyone who loves nature and ocean views.
Taking the road that winds around through the forest and open spaces, there are some spots to pull off and enjoy nature. We found this park on the recommendation of a local who said it should not be missed. Boy was she right.
