This forest is truly representative of the heart & soul of British Columbia. The trees, the sounds, and the calm tranquility within the forest are simply breathtaking.

Heritage Forest in Qualicum Woods is a wonderful place to wander on a hot day through old growth trees. It is a historical place with a mansion at the end where movie stars used to visit in the 1930's.

We visit Qualicum Beach twice a year, and always make time to walk in Heritage Forest. It is always peaceful and quiet. We never see many others walking there. We will continue to visit.
