The Kitsuksis Dyke walking path is one of the most popular spots in the Alberni Valley to go for a casual stroll. It’s also one of the most convenient. The Kitsusksis Dyke path is a paved walkway following both sides of Kitsuksis Creek from it confluence with the Somass River. The northern most section of the trail consists of a dirt path that passes through a mature grand fir forrest, to a waterfall at the railway trestle that spans Kitsuksis Creek. There are two walking bridges along this loop trail.
Along the Kitsuksis Dyke walking path you will find picnic areas, a playground, and a water park. The walking trail is popular with young families, dog walkers (there is a dedicated dog park adjacent to the walking path), inline skaters, and cyclists. For a trail located in the middle of the City there are relatively good opportunities to watch nature. Bird watching is good year round, black bears can be watched in the fall, and coho salmon can be watched jumping up the waterfalls after the first good rain of the fall.
