The trees and forest floor are lush and incredibly beautiful - centuries-old moss-covered trees, healthy ferns. The paths were full of mud and puddles that needed a bit of clamoring around. Hopefully they will be adding some mulch or sawdust to the pathways soon.

You have to stop and visit this place, only complaint it's very challenging to push the wheelchair in which my 75 yrs old mother was in, the park could put more gravel in the water puddles

Walking among these giant moss cloaked trees is one of the most humbling and spiritual experiences we have had. Words cannot express. Well worth the visit.

Trees that are nearly 1000 years old and someone had the foresight to preserve them for future generations. The walks are spectacular

My college age daughters and I were driving to Tofino from Nanaimo and stopped to take a nature walk. Phenomenal experience to be among trees that have survived centuries. Visitors of all ages can enjoy the rarified air,
