Explore Cathedral Grove in MacMillan Provincial Park

1.6 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by Kaila Walton

Walk among old growth Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar trees in a beautiful Vancouver Island coastal forest.

This park is a great stop right on the side of highway 4 heading to or from the Tofino area. If you are heading to Tofino on Vancouver Island, this park is hard to miss. There are signs for it and easy parking on the side of the highway. There are two loop trails on either side of the highway, and they are quite easy with self guided information about whats in the park, along the trails.

Smoking is prohibited in the park and if its really windy, it isn't recommended to walk in the park due to the possibility of big trees and branches falling down.

There are beautiful old growth Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir trees in the park, make sure to walk all of the trails to see the trees, and the biggest Douglas Fir in the park that is over 800 years old.
