Let's call it a trail... lol!
Seriously, I wouldn't call it a trail but it's awesome nevertheless.
I did the part from Trail 1 to 7. Bring hiking shoes even if you attend to be only "optional" clothed. On the other hand you won't find such a diverse hike in few miles radius. Rocks (from tiny to big), old logs, a bit of sand, mud, small bridges, solid dirt ways... literaly everything except grass or concrete.
You have an awesome view. Vancouver downtown, some small island, big ships, water-based log stores, really long jetties and some high cliffs. The two former military towers a now a paradise for grafitti. If you're in luck you will be joined by a heron. And prepare for a lot of jokes regarding the optional-clothed thing (Like a sign warning of the high cliffs which says "keep off". Someone wrote the word "pants" between this two words. Prankster...)
Definetly not your everyday hike but worth every step.
PS: English isn't my mother tongue, so please kindly ignore my mistakes. Cheers!

    It was my first time trail experience in Vancouver. I could see beautiful beach scenery. There are lots of rocks. It makes me difficult to walk a little bit. That was only problem.

      It's really not kidding when it says over half the beach is rocks. You can get away with walking on logs for many sections but it gets old fast. I wouldn't recommend it if it's raining, as the rocks are VERY slippery when wet. Other than that, it's a nice trail with a great view. We did it backwards, starting at Trail 7 (which is kinda sorta transit accessible) and walking around, then up the hill back to campus.

        I did this "trail" a month ago and I loved it. Very enjoyable stroll along the beach with some trail sections along the tree line. On map the trail continues along the beach after trail 7, but I followed it and I'm almost certain they closed that section down. What trail there was at this point was overgrown with many downed trees and at the end where it leads to a small parking area there is a fence blocking the way which you have to hop. I'd advise stopping at trail 7 like this route shows.

        I would also say if the nude beach part throws you off like it did to me at first, the number of clothed to unclothed people was at least 5 to 1 when i went. You don't have to feel awkward going through wreck beach with clothes on.
