Kitsuksis Dyke Walkway

The Kitsuksis Creek dyke system was constructed following the 1964 Alaska earthquake and the subsequent tsunami that hit Port Alberni.  The dyke serves to protect the nearby residential homes and businesses.  The paved pathway along the creek is flat and very gentle for walkers and cyclists offering both open vistas and forested sections. The total distance is about 3 km with nThe Kitsuksis Dyke path is one of Port Alberni’s most popular urban walkways. Developed along both sides of Kitsuksis Creek, the paved path intersects both Blair Park and Spencer Park with many amenities including washrooms, playgrounds, play fields, and picnic areas.  At the north end of the trail a dirt path continues upstream to a small waterfall below the trestle over Kitsuksis Creek.  Towards the south end, trail-goers can access Victoria Quay by crossing Highway #4 near the confluence with the Somass River. This area is very popular with dog walkers who can also make use of the off-leash dog park located in the former baseball field adjacent to Beaver Creek Road. Numerous entrance and exit points from both sides of the creek.
