While this can hardly be considered a 'hike', the short walk to beautiful Tonquin Beach is worthwhile.

Park at the trailhead, and follow the wooded trail for a short ways. You'll wind through the temperate rainforest, and across wooden walkways before reaching the beach itself. Scramble around on the rocks, or just chill out on the sand and enjoy!
