Rainforest Trail has two routes, A & B, both of which fully engulf you in the temperate rainforest full of gigantic western red cedars and western hemlocks. Sparking a sensation of zen, you will be overcome with the nostalgia of your childhood memories, ready to make more. Scan the upper canopy for birds, listen to the trickle of water and smell the life of this highly productive forest. Trail A is located on the opposite side of the highway from the parking lot. Trail B starts from the parking lot.

A great interpretive trail between Tofino and Uclulet. You walk along an elevated path to ensure the environment is left intact. Highly recommend stopping here, even over Cathedral Grove, if you are on the island!

Not to be missed, two trails, if you want to see and feel a real west coast rainforest this is the place to visit, Two trails 1km each. The trails are up and down some places with a lot of stairs up and down.

It's a short drive from Tofino, towards Uqleut. If you go to the visitors centre you can pick up a free map and all locals should be aware of it.
