Trails on either side of Highway 4 lead visitors through the mighty stands of this old-growth coastal forest. On the south side you will find the largest Douglas firs, one measuring more than 9 metres in circumference. On the northern side of the road you will find groves of ancient Western red cedar. Trails are well marked and maintained and some are accessible.
Loop trails lead through the old-growth forest and a raised viewing platform on the south side of the park offers a unique perspective of the surroundings.
Please obey posted signs and stay on designated trails to help reduce the impact of high visitor use.
This easily accessible park offers awe-inspiring views of old-growth ecosystems throughout. Many species of wildlife use the old-growth forest as their home including several types of woodpeckers, owls, insects, reptiles, amphibians, deer, elk, black bear and cougar. The Cameron River, which flows through the park, contains rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout.
Pets and all domestic animals must be on a leash and under control at all times. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Garbage cans are located at the parking lot. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
Cycling is permitted on roadways only, not on park trails. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.
Please note that this rule applies to electric assist motors (e-bikes) as well. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
