Take a quick stroll through the beautiful BC forest to an idyllic beach with panoramic views of epic coastal mountain peaks.

The beach is accessed by an easy 1 km trail that follows along Williams Creek through and old growth forest. The trail has a number of boardwalks and nice views of the creek, which can provide sights of Salmon swimming at the right time of the year. The trail leads to a sandy swimming beach with good wildlife viewing opportunities. Enjoy some fun in the sun with the wonderful BC summer weather, or come watch the sun set behind the peaks of the Kitimat Range.
