This hike took place on a stretch of land that is the unceded, ancestral territories of the Snaw-naw-as (Nanoose FN) and Qualicum First Nation. Both community reserves are in opposite directions from this park, but they likely share territory rights to the coast line and water in and around their reserve lands. This land is currently managed as part of the Regional District of Nanaimo. Here’s their website with information about this park: http://www.rdn.bc.ca/cms.asp?wpID=2581. Here’s a link someone’s blog about the park: http://vancouverislandbeyondvictoria.com/?p=2131
Great way to spend an hour poking in tide pools, looking at seals and climbing over rocks. Totally wish I brought my bathing suit for a quick dip in the bay. Not really a hike, but a steep grade up to the parking lot on the return. Has a garbage bin and an outhouse at the parking lot.
