Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park is well worth visiting. Although strictly speaking the trails in this park are not coastal trails, they do afford access to some of the most beautiful old-growth forests left on the west coast. Large Sitka spruce and hemlock as well as ancient western red cedars line the clear, rushing waters and deep aquamarine pools of Carmanah and Walbran creeks.

Unlike the coastal trails, which resound with the omnipresent sound of crashing surf, the trails in this park will impress you with their silence."

"Iconic old-growth giants in one of the best examples of temperate-zone rainforest on Vancouver Island. Many claim a “mystic” presence amongst the ancient trees in this isolated wilderness valley. Winding paths with boardwalks and viewing platforms next to a small river. Beyond Three Sisters, the trail is not maintained and a sign warns "Trail Closed Ahead." Going farther is not forbidden, though. So if you are feeling adventurous, you may wish to extend your walk."
