    Great hike 10 mins from Tofino. We took the Tofino Water taxi over and back. As someone who does not do well on boats it was a quick ride over with only 1 or 2 bumps along the way. The cedar planks are awesome but very uneven. So make sure to wear good shoes! We took our time and tried to take in all the awesomeness around us. Took less than an hour on the boardwalk trail. Definitely a great hike! Next time we will make sure to do the entire hike!

    We loved the walk here. We Kayaked over and had the place to ourselves. The trees are huge and it feels like a very special place. Hats off to those who demonstrated so hard in the β€˜90s to stop it being logged. They have left a wonderful legacy for the rest of us to enjoy.

    Like stepping into a time capsule. So quite and a great place for chill appreciation of nature. Very lush and the giant trees are a real delight. Be careful as the boardwalk is made of organic wood planks with all their natural, original curves and some parts haven't been maintained as well as others.

    If you're fine on uneven ground its a fantastic little walk only 25 mins one way. Dog friendly just keep a close eye on them if you decide to let them off leash.

    Great trail. It’s a loop that includes boardwalk and trails. The second half can be muddy so be prepared, although it wasn’t too bad for us in second week of September. Do the loop, you won’t be disappointed. Elevation gains are minimal. You will need to climb over/through/under trees. Ferry service is quick, friendly and efficient. Nice way to get on the water for a quick trip to/from the trail.

    Nice easy hike. Virtually any fitness level could easily make it around the short trail which would take you to the tree of life. Not a lot of uphill or downhill. Boardwalk trail is a little uneven and a bit slick but otherwise good. Absolutely gorgeous! A must see for sure.

    IF your going to visit. STICK TO THE BOARDWALK and dont wonder off and damage the ecosystem with your trampling shoes. Everything is interconnected in that forest. Seeing an upclose living giant is nothing short of amazing. 1200+ years old! THE TREE OF LIFE! PROTECT OLD GROWTH FOREST. make sure you sign the petition

    BRING BOOTS! No one warned us, so this is my PSA to youse guys. This is not your leisure walk on a packed trail through the trees. This is a mildly arduous 2 hour journey through the BC rainforest. It is not unlike the Fire Swamp with the 3 terrors: lightning sand, the flame spurts, & ROUSs. Okay, maybe just the first exists here, and it's not lightning sand, it's thick brown mud and it's everywhere! And I'll just say the mosquitoes attacking my wife might as well have been rodents of unusual sizes The amazingly friendly water taxi driver told us someone walked this trail in flip flops the day before. As amazingly friendly as he was, I think he was also a pathological liar. My point is: this trail entails climbing over & under tree logs, carefully stepping & balancing on roots, stones and fallen wood to avoid plunging your feet into the gelatinous, moistened earth---for nearly the entire 2+ hours!! Don't do this in sneakers like we did! It was still lovely and fun as heck.

    Not suitable for dogs because the Boardwalk is rough cut (not milled) and full of spaces and holes for your dog's feet to get caught in. This also makes hiking the Boardwalk for humans more difficult as well, but doable...

πŸ‘πŸ‘ Awesome beach, very fine sand and not too crazy with the crowds for the last week of August. Outdoor wash areas you get the sand off before getting back into your car. Remember to buy your national park pass.

😐 This facility once had a very good exhibition. Restaurant with beach and sunset views used to be top class, high rated. Unfortunately, since management transferred to First Nations, essentially abandoned.
