    I really loved this walk. I remember coming here as a kid with my sister, my grandpa, and my uncle. I don't remember much but oh boy is was it ever beautiful. If you are in the area, its totally worth it. Very highly recommended, don't forget your park pass! Enjoy the sights and sounds...take lots of pictures!

    We did both trails and thought they were both beautiful! Super well developed & maintained - great job to all the people who have worked on these trails!! Great way to see so many beautiful, big trees and breath in all that forest air! 🌳 ❀️

    This is a beautiful and awe inspiring walk. We did the A loop as the B loop was closed. The trail we walked on was all laid out with a beautiful wooden boardwalk with steps up and down the hills. So there are no muddy trails and it is an easy walk. The old growth forest is incredibly lush and you could see the new growth sprouting from fallen, old trees that had decayed and allowed the forest cycle to continue. Breath taking scenery!

    It’s a must!!! I have a broken leg with rod in it and I am on the heavier side. I was able to do it. It took us 40 min to do the loop B and it was just amazing. Some wood panels were loose, so be careful. So many stairs, but manageable. I highly recommend it. It’s just so nice to experience this from the heart of it. Will definitely go back and take my friends.

    Definitely worth doing if you’re visiting Tofino. We took our time on both trails, which made the stairs not seem like a burden on our way back up. Trail A took us about 35 minutes and Trail B 40 minutes, again walking pretty slow, and just over 1km for each trail.

    An absolutely beautiful boardwalk trail. We walked on Trail B. I kept wondering how it was constructed, but very glad that it was. It’s so serene. There are other people on the trail, but spaced out enough that you have privacy. You feel like you’re in another world during parts of the trail. A word of caution for those not expecting wildlife on the trail: Towards the last third of the trail, I saw a bear on a platform ahead, about 20 feet away and up a few steps. It was far enough away so we turned around returned the way we came from.

    Two easy loops with a bit over 1km each. Almost completely on wooden paths. Impressive rainforest 😍 definitely worth stopping! Parking is 21$ for a day pass (shortest option) and two adults. Guess that's needed with all the tourists in summer?

    We did loop B today. We moved quickly, so it took us only around 20-25 minutes. Absolutely gorgeous walk and we loved the signage throughout which included descriptions and information. Would have loved to stay for loop A, but had a tight timeline. Definitely worth the stop!

    Beautiful trail. It is one of the busiest trails in the area, but early morning before 8am it is deserted. Lush and old landscape, entirely on a deck platform. It took me about 25 minutes to complete trail B loop. Very easy, some stairs but nothing crazy. Dog friendly on leash. One of the highlight is the bridge made out of a huge tree trunk. Theres also a huge tree where you can picture yourself next to it.

    This place is like a other world! Reminds me of New Zealand! So pretty, so fresh and peaceful! Be prepared for a lot of stairs. We'll maintain boardwalk throughout. We just hiked Trail B and it took about 45 minutes with stops.

    Fantastic walk for all ages! Great source of oxygen. I was taken back by the sizes of the trees, I can only imagine how old they are. Be aware the pathway is narrow and has a decent amount of steps. If your level of fitness isn't great and you visit on a busy day you may have to move aside for some people.

    Was lovely during a rainy day. The paths are boardwalks. Particularly enjoyed loop a, which you have to cross the road. Plenty of parking. Both loops are around 1km each.

    Breathtaking walk. There are two 1 KM Loops. Check out both. It is incredible to see how they’ve built such a sturdy and stable wooden boardwalk-like pathway throughout the rainforest. Photos can’t even capture the beauty of this trail.

  • 5/5 Dorian D. 11 months ago on Google
    Exceptional walk in the rain forest. You’ll have 2 trails available (one on each side of the road, A and B). Parking is on the B side, which you’ll have to pay for (21$ for a group or 10$ per person). The all walks goes on wooden paths and is relatively easy. Some of the trees are gigantic.

  • 5/5 Frank W. 1 year ago on Google
    This free and easy trail turns out the best spot in the reserve. The trees, bushes, ferns grow so dense together, with mosses on the tree trunk, whether is the tree is dead or alive: they all live on each other, peacefully at least and seemingly harmoniously as well. The park management did a terrific job maintaining the trail, with most parts in air like bridge. One huge cedar trunk (like 3 feet) lies across a small creek:, with top section chopped flat for a very easy crossing. I stopped there for a whole, trying to figure out how did they get the huge tree trunk there? Physically, there is no realistic way to move the trunk (unlike one uses a helicopter or something like that). The most likely answer is, they didn't get the trunk there: the trunk happened to just fall there. If that's true, that'd the truly amazing work of nature.

    Nice walk We did Loop B then Loop A. We liked Loop B better. Took us 45-60 min per loop with stops. Park pass can be purchased at parking lot by cards ($10.50 per person per day at Pacific Rim NP).

  • 5/5 Jakob B. 10 months ago on Google
    Great walk through a rain forest. You should definitely do both loops. Loop A is through an old untouched rain forest while loop B shows a recultivation after the forest has been cut down 60 years ago (in about 500 years it looks like loop A). The walk is very easy, you could do it with flipflops. It's a bit touristy if you prefer being alone in the woods

  • 5/5 Harry L. 2 years ago on Google
    love the both trails, it's amazing. caution, trail A is a little easier for kids, trail B north of the highway, it's a harder as there are more stairs.

  • 5/5 Mike M. 1 year ago on Google
    Go on this trail just to see the board walk. It's a work of engineering. The people who built it were superb. The trail was way more exciting than I thought. My wife made me go. Well worth it!

  • 5/5 Carlos U. 1 year ago on Google
    Fantastic coastal rainforest walk. A little steep in places so take care. Especially if a bit unsteady on your feet. Also worth noting that there are two trails. Trail A is located across the road from the car park. Trail B is located at the farthest end of the car park.

    So far my favourite trail on the entire island. I'm open to hear what tops this trail. Went early on a Sunday morning in May and only saw one other couple on the hike.

  • 5/5 Trevor R. 2 years ago on Google
    Love this trail, but if you hate stairs or have balance problems this might be a pass for some. Loop a and B are great boardwalks and stairs are the order of day. If you have little ones you will probably be holding onto them most of the time as it’s easy to fall if not paying attention.

😐 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.

πŸ‘πŸ‘ 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...
