Overview
More
Rainforest Trail has two routes, A & B, both of which fully engulf you in the temperate rainforest full of gigantic western red cedars and western hemlocks. Sparking a sensation of zen, you will be overcome with the nostalgia of your childhood memories, ready to make more. Scan the upper canopy for birds, listen to the trickle of water and smell the life of this highly productive forest. Trail A is located on the opposite side of the highway from the parking lot. Trail B starts from the parking lot.

this was an eyeopener with ancient trees, moss through hills and valleys. It is a short hike about 1.2 km but all along a narrow boardwalk of cedar. the boardwalk is as impressive as the scenery.

This trail is a great little stop, especially if you are camping in Green Point. We walked over and explored the trail. Lots of neat old growth trees and nature to explore!

Great walk with interpretive signs. Found it very interesting and educational. Make sure you wear good shoes especially if it has rained.

The trail is perfectly maintained and a "medium challenge" for hikers (lots and lots of steps and narrow planks). My friend and I absolutely loved this magical trail, but met a few people that were terrified of falling through stairs, afraid of heights, etc. The...More

The boardwalk in the rainforest was amazing. It wasn't very busy, which made the experience even more magical. There are trail updates going on, but everything is always open. There is also information signs which really help to understand just how cool the area really...More

It's a short drive from Tofino, towards Uqleut. If you go to the visitors centre you can pick up a free map and all locals should be aware of it.
