Rainforest Trail has two routes, A & B, both of which fully engulf you in the temperate rainforest full of gigantic western red cedars and western hemlocks. Sparking a sensation of zen, you will be overcome with the nostalgia of your childhood memories, ready to make more. Scan the upper canopy for birds, listen to the trickle of water and smell the life of this highly productive forest. Trail A is located on the opposite side of the highway from the parking lot. Trail B starts from the parking lot.

Just of the road between Tofino and Ucluelet and place which makes you feel as if you are in another world. Quite 'spooky' really. Boardwalks all through. Definitely a place to take the kids and see their reaction - even the adults can sense the strangeness of it all.

We enjoyed this and we have seen several rainforests in the Pacific Northwest. Parents should be aware that there are no railings for little ones and it is not suitable for wheel chairs due to the stairs. Signage was not clear on the railing/wheelchair issue.

We went to the Rain forest trail B loop. The beginning of the trail was a relatively young resorted forest and about 1/4 into the forest it gradually merged into the old forest. The narrow Boardwalk was quite neat, elevated from the forest floor and had many interpreter signage do along. The walk was about 15 minutes in the forest,... More

This rainforest is beautiful and well worth the hour or so it takes to make the tour. There are lots of huge trees and interesting plants. The pink adirondack chairs at the monarch tree were very interesting. We had a great hike. I expected trolls to pop out from behind trees at any moment!

The trails are well maintained and labeled. Thanks to this planning, the forest is not destroyed by folks walking in areas other than the paths.

Sizes of the trees were amazing to consider how old they were. Nice to hike on the boardwalk, makes the trek easier. Terrain would be treacherous if not. Found it to be very peaceful and serene.

A nice easy walk through the rainforest of the Pacific Rim National Park. We only walked the one trail (it was pouring) but it was a great walk along the boardwalk the entire way. Highly recommended

On a rainy day there's nothing better to do than go on a rainforest trail. It's fun to walk on the boardwalks and see how the mosses & lichens have covered everything. Beautiful ferns too. There are 2 short loops with interpretive signs.
