If you are renting a car, don't take your chances driving up there (You'll see why). We had to get a ride. There are people on the island who apparently get paid to tattle on tourists who are seen driving on the logging roads. That...More

I have done alot of hiking in the Rocky Mountains but never in a rainforest setting. The scenery is lovely and also experiencing the site of huge trees and undulating carpets of moss while hiking made for a unique and interesting departure from traditional hiking.

Obvious time and effort put in to create a somewhat safe trail to the peak area. Once up there in the open high ground you get a fine view down on Skidegate inlet and Queen Charlotte all the way out to Sandspit and beyond into...More

this is a very demanding 2h+ trail consisting in steep wet slopes in a dark forest. quite vertical, slippery, often tricky. however it can be done by an average person with lots of ambition. descending is almost as difficult as the climbing. the views at...More

This is a must do hike for all visitors on a sunny day. Not for the feint of heart or sedentary folk. Climb is very vertical, with some tricky spots. But my child climbed in sandals at age four, so the average person can do...More
