Nice to walk through a forest on a boardwalk rather than uneven ground and know you're causing damage to the environment. Gives a good perspective of the size of the trees and the whole ecosystem including the under story. There are steps involved so not accessible to wheelchairs or prams. Otherwise fairly easy walk, not too long so any able... More

This is an amazing place for a short walk around some giants Cedars trees. There is a short trial that is taking no more than 20-30 minutes. Well worth to stop and walk. Great photo opportunities. Free parking

Clean parking lot with picnic tables, also clean washrooms available. The walk is short but nice. Feels like being in the rain forest a bit.

This is a quick 1 kilomter board walk through some giant cedars. Now, these cedars are definitely not giant cedars like you find in the California Red Wood forest, but none the less, they are big. Truthfully though, I think you will find some bigger at Enchanted Forest and Three Valley gap, mind you, the one at Enchanted is over... More

This was a beautiful walk & a great stop for a picnic. The area is well maintained green and lush. Really enjoyed the boardwalk. Worth the stop.

We stopped here on our way from Kamloops to Banff and it was one of our best stops in Canada. The giant cedars are unique to this area. There is a boardwalk trail with some stairs but not taxing in any way. There are signs all along the trail, giving information and explaining what you are looking at. The only... More

So cute, managed to fit this in just before dusk while travelling to Revelstoke and if you have time go, we luckily had the place to ourselves, but the trees are gorgeous and well worth a quick stop.

To see the intererior rainforest and giant red cedars that are hundreds of years old and easily 6 - 8 feet in diameter. It's just amazing and beautiful. Short trail but lots of stairs, about 1.2 km in total. Worth the time to stop and enjoy nature's beauty.

If you've got a Parks Pass, pop into this ~20 minute stop about 35 km east of Revelstoke. The boardwalk is well maintained and easy for families. Not stroller friendly, though! Once in the woods, you can smell the Cedar trees! My son loved it, as did I! Great signage along the trail to learn more, or just enjoy the... More
