The trees are really big, a few signs giving some information on the area. But its really just a walkway through a forest! I wouldn't go out of your way to visit. Unless you really really like trees.

This was a good opportunity to get out of the car and stretch our legs. The path (boardwalk) is in good order, we were lucky with the weather, all in all worth stopping.

Although outside Revelstoke, this is worthy of a visit. It isn’t a huge walk but stunning in terms of a winding boardwalk through the forest.

A lovely small trail in the forest....just great! It doesn't take long to follow the boardwalk - there's steps up and down, so not accessible, but it's worth a trip if that's not an issue.

It's a short and easy walk and worth working if you are in the area. Otherwise, it is a bit of a drive from town.

Obviously these aren't the red oaks of California but were were amazed at the stately height of these trees. We found it fascinating and the walk very easy to do and easy to find.

Alongside Trans-Canada 1 this is like an oasis of peace and quiet. The walk is not long but has quite a few steps to climb. Well worth the stop.

A kilometer, boardwalk, saunter through some rare, old growth forest right on the highway. Big trees. At times you could hear the trickle of the babbling brook. Don't drive by!

I think Parks Canada has specific hours that they may enforce but if you have the daily visitor pass for the National Parks and you parked at the entrance, it's a very short walk to the trail. The trail takes about 20... More

Keep in mind this attraction is probably closed until late spring due to snow. You are supposed to have a national park pass or you pay the day fee which is about $20 if the park staff are manning the station. If they are... More
