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

Absolutely worth making the effort to see. We stopped there on a recommendation from someone else and were not disappointed at all, it was just amazing. An easy Boardwalk up into the forest of these enormous cedar trees. The smell was amazing and the size of the trees are also amazing!

Take the time to stop and walk amongst these majestic huge trees. It only takes 15 minutes or as long as you want but it is worth every second. The boardwalk is well maintained as well although there are a few steps throughout the walk.

This lovely walk is located 30 km east of the Town of Revelstoke on the Trans Canada Highway. I try to always make this a stop when I am driving through. Walking the wide wooden boardwalk through the forest and ferns is such a beautiful, calming experience. There is a magical atmosphere that descents on you from the first moment... More

This was a great little spot to get out of the car and walk through. Doesn't take more than 20 min and that is taking your time enjoying the rich cedar aroma.

This is a really great trail within gorgeous cedar and hemlock forest. The path is very well maintained and was a great stop to get it and stretch the legs. The walk itself is maybe only 20 mins, but well worth the time.

An opportunity to walk through mature woodland and get some sense of how this part of Canada might have been in the past.

This is an impressive stand of giant cedars and hemlocks the likes of which you won't see again until you get to the coast, most spectacularly at Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island. It's a short half-kilometer walk all on a raised boardwalk with some elevation variation but not overtaxing. Worth taking a break to remind you of your place in... More

A nice stop on your way through the park, with a short walk under the giant trees and some explanation about the forest. Especially very refreshing on a hot summer's day.

The actual walk is only 0,5km through the Cedar forest, which is hardly a hike. The forest is beautiful though and there is a very 'fresh' atmosphere below the huge trees. Great place to be on a hot day.
