The Greenheart Tree Walk follows a suspended route up into the trees of the UBC rain forest. Take the free guided tour as you'll miss tons of neat sights and info if you go by yourself.

I cannot stress how cool this place is. Seriously. I would also highly recommend the Greenhart TreeWalk! It's a little extra, but it's definitely worth it! It was so much fun and exhilarating! It should be its own attraction on TripAdvisor.

Is April and/or May a good time to visit for many blooms this year (2017)? If not, would later be better for this area? Was curious when most flowers might be in bloom for this year or generally in this climate/region. Thank you for your time and expertise! Excited to visit for the first time.
