    Directions to Trailhead

    The Kingfisher and McFall Creek Loop is a 2.3 km lollipop hiking route that loops through an amazingly scenic West Coast temperate rainforest environment. Along the trail, you will be surrounded by an abundance of plant and animal life, as you cross over wooden bridges and bubbling forest streams that dissect the thick underbrush around you. While this is a fairly accessible hike, there are a few steps and uneven areas that might make travel difficult for less-mobile hikers.

    Route Description for Kingfisher and McFall Creek Loop Hike

    Hiking the Kingfisher and McFall Creek Loop is a spectacular rainforest excursion that will allow you to fully appreciate the natural beauty of this type of landscape. The trail sets out from the side of the road and heads south to be immediately met with a junction. Follow the path to the left to enter the tree cover and begin the loop through the atmospheric rainforest. If you are able to time this hike for right after a good rainwall, the moss-covered trees and abundant plant life will be dripping with moisture, and the steam rising up from the forest floor will make the setting feel almost magical. As you work your way through the forest, you will cross over small streams and stretches of boardwalk that span the forest floor. Reaching the most southern point of the trail near Willingdon Beach, the trail will turn back to the north on the return loop that will bring you back to the trailhead where you began your hike.
