Heritage Forest in Qualicum Woods is a wonderful place to wander on a hot day through old growth trees. It is a historical place with a mansion at the end where movie stars used to visit in the 1930's.

We visit Qualicum Beach twice a year, and always make time to walk in Heritage Forest. It is always peaceful and quiet. We never see many others walking there. We will continue to visit.

This gem of a forest is a gorgeous little walk in the middle of town. Right across from the Memorial Golf Course and a stones throw from the beach. Only a short walk to town.

Went for a nice hike in the forest with my mom's walking club. There are trees over 800 years old mixed in everywhere. A beautiful place to spend a few hours.

A quiet, unassuming set of trails that take you through an old stand of very tall trees. The trails meander by Beach Creek which a few short blocks away empties into the ocean. There are a few benches where you can rest and enjoy the...More
