Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail, Revelstoke

4.6
#1 of 13 in Trails in Kootenay Rockies
Hiking Trail Nature / Park
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.

  • Lots of stairs, but easy to do. Lovely quiet area, with trees dappled with mid morning sunshine. About 20 mins, or walk around twice, as we did. Tree bathing!  more »
  • Loved stopping by and walking this Boardwalk with our puppy. The trees are magestic. I suggest wearing bug spray as there were many Mosquitos in the area.  more »
  • We had always gone by this site while enroute to our kids and we decided instead of talking about it, we'd do it. So we spent time at all the boardwalks along that area, Giant Cedars being one. What a...  more »

  • Great easy hike with a lot of rest points - this would be a great hike for those who find longer/steeper hikes to be a bit challenging. The boardwalk is well maintained and the forest was lush and gorgeous.
  • Beautiful! Stop during the shoulder season and you may be fortunate enough to walk it entirely alone.
  • A must see spot. Great way to rest and stretch your legs. It's not a long walk. Plenty of benches to rest on the way. You won't be disappointed.
  • Light hike for the whole family (~30min total). Beautiful trail surrounded by giant cedars. The boardwalk is very well maintained. Enjoyed the fresh cedar scent, especially after some rain. Definitely worth a visit when passing by.
  • Very quick walk through the forest on a boardwalk. If you've done any of the boardwalk hikes on Vancouver Island or on the coast this will be nothing new to you. A good excuse to stretch your legs though. Note you will need a park pass (available at a booth in the parking lot)
