Cathedral Grove/MacMillan Provincial Park

Alberni Highway 4, Vancouver Island,
For visitors who don’t get to see much old-growth forest, Cathedral Grove offers a rare opportunity to see a magnificent, ancient Douglas fir ecosystem, one of the last remaining and easily accessible forests in British Columbia. The trees in this park are massive, some of them 800 years old with circumferences of 30 feet. Even teens will appreciate the trails and boardwalk through the quiet forest, and younger kids will turn it into a scamper. Roadside parking is on the highway shoulder, and it can get quite congested in summer so keep an eye on little ones as you’re crossing the road.

Best For:  Tots (0-2)   Kids (3-6)   Kids (7-9)   Tweens (10-12)   Teens (13+)
