Loved this trail. We climbed the stairs from the main road near the ferry dock and were at the trail in a few minutes. The boardwalk section of the trail was my favorite. Would be a good spot to sit and read or to sketch. Very peaceful area.

The boardwalk at the ecological park is a beautiful part. It looks surreal. I was told at the tourist information centre in Port McNeill that this is a good place for bird watching but that is not correct. The only birds around are the crows and ravens, like most of the island.

The rest of the trails especially the whale trail on the west coast of the island is a bit frustrating. It’s not being maintained and very overgrown so sometimes hard to find the right way to go.

But defined recommend the board walk.

This is a "must see" on the island. The trees are almost petrified and look ominous, but the scene is magnificent. The boardwalk is flat and easily accessible after a short walk through the forest. Well worth a visit!

Beautiful scenery and nice walking trails, also a nice boardwalk. Very unique area that is hard to imagine until you come upon it. You walk a little bit along a very densely wooded area, and then an open , sunny area appears with tall barren trees.

This is a fantastic place to go exploring even if, like me, you're kinda afraid of hiking alone. The trails are well signed and trail maps posted at key intersections so you can take a photo for navigating. I walked down to the beach (the Dozer Trail), explored the Main Trail and checked out the boardwalk. There isn't much Interpretive material but it's a lovely place to walk.

Lovely spot for a walk. The map had 2 loops but one we were not able to walk because of fallen trees etc. A bit disappointed. Needs work.

The bog and boardwalk at Alert Bay Ecological Park, and the surrounding forest were beautiful. It was however, difficult to find. Do not follow Google Maps instructions as there is no entrance where it sends you. There are a few small white signs on the Island that lead you there, through the campsite. It’s quite the uphill walk from the ferry, but it was a nice visit.

This is a lovely place to take a walk and see what people can accomplish when they don't mean to haha. This place wouldn't exist if someone hadn't decided to make a dam that consequently killed off all the trees within the flood area. It is very good walk to enjoy if you have some time.

Have never seen so much lichen growing from trees and shrups. So much that it looked like icicles hanging from the branches. The air must be so pure there!!!!

After walking the boardwalk through this magical lagoon, we hiked trails and really enjoyed the west coast forest and beach. Most trails are well marked and because the island is only 3 miles long, you can't really get lost.
