Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail, Revelstoke

4.6
#1 of 25 in Trails in Kootenay Rockies
Walk along Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail, a .5 km (.3 mi) boardwalk that takes you through the heart of the Mount Revelstoke forest. This wooden elevated path leads you through the dense forest vegetation as giant cedar trees more than 500 years old surrounded you. Rest on the benches that line the trail to relax and take in the atmosphere. At the head of the trail sits the Giant Cedar's Picnic area, a good stop to nibble on a snack. Bring bug repellent, as mosquitos can be present on the trail, and keep an eye out for black bears.

  • These trees are gigantic. The trail leads over planks and a few steps. It is worth! The trail takes about 15 min and is an experience. You no longer comes out of amazement.

  • Make this stop. Only takes about 30 minutes to so the whole boardwalk, but it's peaceful and relaxing.
  • This is a cool boardwalk built in the forest. The trees are huge! Well worth a 20 minute walk along the trail loop.
  • Absolutely stop here. Stretch your legs and smell the fresh air. I love this place so much. Just avoid the tour buses.
  • Amazing! The forest was so beautiful. It felt like we were in a different world. Tall pine trees, beautifully maintained boardtrail, great for people of all ages. Can't bring stroller or wheelchairs because there were lots of stair. It could get a little chilly in a summer morning, bring jacket for your little ones.
  • We decided to take a short break on our 8 hour drive back home to check out the Giant Cedars. Since it was unplanned, I had no expectations, but it was amazing! I felt like I was walking though an enchanted forest! Definitely check it out if you're driving by.
