The park’s enchanting temperate rainforest is a favourite for hikers, cyclists, and trail-blazers of all kind. Take a leisurely hike through giant red cedars, along bubbling streams and over footbridges on The Inspiration Woods trail, or enjoy some wild-flower gazing in the summer. We recommend the park’s hike to Eva Lake, a cool and crystal clear mountain lake that’s well worth the trek!
