Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail, Revelstoke

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • When we got out of the car we didn't think it was that impressive, a few big trees we thought. Boy were we wrong! Once out of the car and looking around the trees we thought were big were actually hug...  more »
  • Unfortunately you can hear he highway a bit throughout your walk. But it's still a pleasant, accessible wander through rainforests. You would think that you are on Vancouver Island, it's so lush. 
  • This trail starts immediately at the parking lot (about 30km East of Revelstoke) and is on a boardwalk with some steps through an ancient forest with giant trees. Very peacefull and impressive.

  • 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.
  • Nice little 15 minute walk through the woods but be warned, you need a park pass to walk it. That will cost you $20 and if you aren't planning on visiting other parks then that's a pretty expensive 15 minutes! Plus it was busy so there wasn't much time to stand around and enjoy the scenery as we had to keep moving so as not to hold up or hog the space.
  • 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)
  • Easy scenic hike. We were prepared for more of a trek, but the entire walk only takes 15-30 min, and is boardwalked right from the parking lot. Lots of tourists, but definitely worth the trip from Revelstoke.
  • Nice boardwalk my family enjoyed it. Many tall trees. It's a nice break for driving between Calgary and Vancouver.
