Close to the highway 1, this short boardwalk gives visitors a quick look at an up close look at an old growth forest.

Nice and refreshing walk in the rainforest. Sounds of flowing water from multiple streams make it a really nice experience. Highly recommended.

This short boardwalk trail was a nice place to stretch your legs. About 5 minutes around the boardwalk showcasing large trees and shade. A break away from the road even if it was just a short jaunt.

Probably one of the easiest hikes in the park. Well shaded and overall a very good interpretive trail.

There is probably room for a 40 ft. RV in the small parking lot. You can buy a pass at the park entrance which is right on the Trans-Canada Highway.
