Hiking THE CRACK in Killarney Provincial Park | Cross Canada Van Life Road Trip | Vanlife Canada
In this vlog we bring you along on our first hiking adventure on our Cross Canada Van Life Road Trip. We spent the night in Killarney Provincial Park and woke up bright and early to pack up the van and head out to hike The Crack. We have wanted to do this hike for a long time and were super excited to finally get the chance. The hike starts off fairly easy with just a dirt/gravel trail. But about a kilometer in it starts to climb through lush forest. Next you reach a point where you get to start climbing some small rock scrambles, and then eventually you get to 'The Crack' where you are literally using all fours to climb a giant rock scramble in a crack in the mountain. The views once you get the top are just stunning and totally worth it. Read on for some of the trail details! 1️⃣ The crack is a 7-9km out and back hike. I say 7-9 because online says 7 but our Garmin watches said 9 (we did walk back and forth a little) 😂 2️⃣ The hike is rated as highly difficult. However, the first half of it is relatively easy. The second half is where you start to climb. You'll be faced with some small rock scrambles to start, and they will progressively get bigger. 3️⃣ The crack portion of the hike is really awesome. It's literally a giant rock scramble. Using all four limbs, you will need to climb your way over massive rock fall. This was by far our favourite part of the hike. You will also need to climb this back down, so make sure you are comfortable with that. We got caught in some rain on our way down, and the rocks became VERY slippery. So just be aware of your comfort level and your limits. 4️⃣ The views from the top are just amazing and totally worth the climb. We definitely recommend stopping here to enjoy a snack and some water before you make your way back down. 5️⃣ Overall, the hike took 4 hours to complete including our lunch break at the top. #vanlife #roadtripcanada #thecrack #killarneyprovincialpark ---------- SUPPORT US!
