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.

This walk takes about 15/20 mins each way along a man build board walk but really beautiful. And the beach at the end was amazing and so picturesque. Would love to go there on a hot summers day. Again nowhere to buy a coffee or snack so bring your own.

This hike is really a walk in the woods, on boardwalks and up and down stairs. It is really beautiful, and not very exerting. There are two 1km loops, one on each side of the highway.

It was a nice walk along a prepared path (boardwalk) through the rain forrest of the area. It was call Rainforrest Trail. I recommend you not miss it. We saw an incredible and diverse life system throughout.

The sheer green abundance of this very three dimensional trail is almost overwhelming. with more biomass than anywhere else on earth the west Coast old growth rain forest is an inspiring place. the trees-some more than 800 years old tower over you as you look at life at every level.

We stopped at the rainforest trail (I believe it was trail B - the one near the parking lot). It's in the park so you'll need a park pass or you can pay at one of the little pay stations. The walk is slippery when it's wet - so be cautious. There's railing in spots but it's only on one... More

A great stroll through the rainforest, always a good experience, this is not a strenuous walk and is ok for anyone who is not in a wheelchair I guess, some beautiful trees an plant life and gives a great opportunity to marvel at the sheer size of some the tree's and the way the fauna and flora blend together in...

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.
