Took our Golden Retriever on a little hike. She loved the pathway through the forest and to the ocean. It is 1/2 mile in. She loved exploring on the rocks and in the area.

Took our 18 month old golden retriever with us on the hike. It is .5 miles into the ocean. Our pooch loved the walk through the trees. Path is great albeit a little stumpy/rooty. Ocean is peaceful..some nice rock formations and logs.

I grew up near this park, and spend hundreds of hours here. The trail is gorgeous, mostly downhill one way, then uphill the other way, of course! The trail takes one to the sea. The view is heavenly. The beach is naturally carved sandstone, which...More

Roberts Memorial Provincial Park is an easy and short walk through dense and beautiful forest. The walk takes you to an opening to the ocean. There were several people there crabbing, with success. The beach is sandstone and littered in areas with driftwood. Very pleasant...More

You couldn't spend a whole morning here, but if driving in the area it is worth a stop. Arriving at the sea there are interesting rock formations, and great views across the bay. On our visit we think there were some locals fishing illegally for...More

This walk can easily be done in an hour, but you will enjoy your hour fully. The scenery is amazing, and the view of the ocean is nice at the end. The hike is not very challenging, but you have to pay attention to your...More

Nice walk through the forest will lead you to a rocky beach and the open ocean. Small parking lot with washrooms. Benches at the beach. Great escape overall.

Goatboy45 - Roberts Memorial Park is pedestrian access only. It is not suitable for boat launching. The trail goes through a nice forest for half a km or so. It is an easy walk on a well defined path. Beware of the many... More
