Canada is known for its unparalleled nature from stunning beaches and coastal views to lush rainforests and mountaintops. There's a reason so many international visitors flock to Canada every year to experience its beauty in person. Our great country is the perfect destination for hiking and outdoor exploration!
If you want to experience a hiking trail like no other, head out to British Columbia and walk down a short and sweet 0.5 km trail that takes you through an ancient forest filled with giant cedar trees!
The Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail is located in the heart of Mount Revelstoke National Park which is a 4.5-hour drive from Calgary, Alberta and just under a 6-hour drive from Vancouver, British Columbia. The Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail is short, only 0.5 km in length which will take visitors about 15-30 minutes to finish, depending on how much you want to stop and read the signs and take photos along the way.
The giant cedar trees are clearly the feature of this stunning boardwalk trail. Some of the trees within this forest are over 500 years old! It's a seriously impressive forest which all Canadians and tourists should experience at least once in their lives.
The trail will take you up and down wooden staircases that weave through the ancient forest. Since the boardwalk trail is so short, barely any effort is involved to walk up the steps. There are also wooden benches placed along the trail where you can take a break and enjoy the views for a few minutes.
You can experience this stunning forest loop that will lead you through the world's only temperate inland rainforest! The boardwalk will open again for the season in June and will remain open until the end of September. You will have to buy park passes to enter the trail which cost $7.80 for adults and kids under 17 get in free!
