Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail, Revelstoke

4.6
#1 of 13 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.

    Very much enjoyed our scenic walk on our way through. Some of the best things in life are free! This was one of those things! Would recommend it as a nice roadside stop!  more »

    Of typical superb giant cedars of the Canadian forest. Very convenient access by the Trans-Canada Highway. A ballad without effort that puts you in the heart of the forest. Not to be missed.

    Short hike, wooden walkways set up for a walk out of time in a century-old forest. To do it without hesitation.

    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)

Where to stay in Revelstoke

Revelstoke's position on the Columbia River endows it with scenic vistas, and most of the accommodations in town take advantage of this by offering waterfront views. Stay at one of the many bed and breakfasts, inns, hotels, or lodges on the east side of the river to make the most of the scenery. If you visit Revelstoke to ski--between November and April--stay south of the town center, in a ski chalet at the foot of Revelstoke Mountain. There, you'll be perfectly placed to catch a gondola up the mountain and shred down its slopes.
