    The hike up to the Easter Bluff Viewpoint follows a 1.8 km out-and-back route that leads you uphill for some amazing views overlooking Cortes Bay. From the viewpoint, you can watch boats come in and out of the cove, while you sit and enjoy a nice picnic lunch along the Sunshine Coast. While the trail is fairly short and easy, there are some steep sections with rocks that will make travel difficult for families with strollers and there are also some drop offs at the top, so be sure to keep an eye on children when up near the viewing area.

    Route Description for Easter Bluffs

    While it may be short on distance and difficulty, the Easter Bluffs trail is big on views. The trail sets out from the side of the road and immediately enters into the forest to the east. From here, it climbs uphill through the dense tree cover on a quick route up to the viewpoint. After making your way up the 101m of elevation gain that is crammed into the short hike, you will be greeted with an amazing view that looks out over the calm waters of Cortes Bay below and stretches out across the blue expanse of the Georgia Strait. After taking in the amazing views, head back down the same route to return to the trailhead.

    Getting to the Easter Bluffs Trailhead
