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.

Neat to see the big trees in this area. It is a quick walk around the boardwalk. Take your time, have a seat on one of the benches and relax in the cool shade of the canopy.

Very good information, not too long, a nice walk and we learned a lot. In fact it is almost a must if you want to know more about how the forest here used to be before man arrived.

This short boardwalk is a gem just off the Trans Canada Highway. We stopped in the early morning and had the place to ourselves. Peaceful walk through the majestic Cedars. The air was so sweet that you took extra breaths with every step.

A short and easy trail in Mt. Revelstoke National Park. It's on a boardwalk, which was a nice change from the rocky trails we'd done earlier in the day. Beautiful trees here of good size.

We stopped at the trail during the August long weekend. It was a stop on our way to Revelstoke and a good opportunity to stretch our legs. There are washrooms as well. When you enter the boardwalk it looks like something out of a fairy tale. It's extremely green, the leaves near the ground are huge and the trees reach... More

We took the opportunity to stop on the way to Salmon Arm - wanted to hug a tree! The trees were too big to hug, and boy were they impressive. The walk was a very ease boarded trail through a unique cedar forrest, with trees over 500 years old. Excellent! But best to have insect repellent to hand as the... More
