Overview

Cape Fife Trail is a trail located inside the Naikoon Provincial Park. It is a fairly long 10km hike on relatively flat ground. It can be very muddy and the boardwalk sections should be replaced in the next few years. Hikers should plan this as a day trip, as the state of the the trail can slow down your pace noticeably. It should take between 5 and 8 hours return. 

This trail is listed on the brochure "Guide to Recreation and Trails on Haida Gwaii".

The trailhead is accessible at North Beach at the end of Tow Hill Road. It is just across the bridge from where the popular Tow Hill hiking trails are located.

The trail is an old settlers' road within Naikoon Provincial Park and leads to East Beach.

At the end of the trail is a campsite and a cabin on the beach. The cabin was built by BC Parks and the Council of the Haida Nation, to provide shelter for hikers It has a woodstove, table and bunkbeds.

It is possible to join this hike with a walk along the East Beach, north to Rose Spit and back on North Beach. This would typically take a minimum of 12 hours of hiking time and is usually done as an overnight trip. This can also be your exit or entry trail if you plan to do the "East Beach Trail". 

For more information and pictures, we also have a blog entry on this trail that you may wish to look at.
