Blow Hole Boardwalk





This Trail leads the hiker to the base of Tow Hill. From there you can wander on the rocks and observe the feature known as the "Blowhole". A cavity fills up as a wave is pushing water in, and the pressure creates a "geyser" of seawater. This phenomenon is best observed at certain moments of the tide. You can enquire locally as to when the best time to observe it would be. 

This hike is listed on the brochure "Guide to Recreation sites and Trails of Haida Gwaii". 

The trailhead is the same as for the Tow Hill Hike.

The Blowhole boardwalk is wheelchair accessible. It is a non strenuous hike, on flat ground. Return is via the same route.
