Rainforest Trail, Tofino

(550+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail Nature / Park
Stroll through a dense tropical rainforest on a wooden boardwalk at Rainforest Trail. You may even forget about the small, unobtrusive path as you take in the lush surroundings. Sunlight peers through the trees, revealing the moss-covered forest floor. Keep an eye out for local wildlife and a wide variety of mushrooms along the way. Don't forget to watch your step: the path is elevated at some parts, and moss on the planks can get quite slippery. Using our international travel planner, Tofino attractions like Rainforest Trail can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The most amazing place ever. To see these tall trees hundreds of years old. The new walk ways are perfect . Not stroller suitable.
  • Walk into the heart of the forest. Plankways lead you onto a magical communion with nature. I hope it will inspire many on our relationship with our essential world.
  • If you think bringing your 4 month old in a stroller on this walk in a February rain storm is a good idea, then you (like me) definitely didn't bother reading the other reviews or looking at any the pictures. Long story short; she's fine, but yikes my wife is never going to let that one go... baby carriers are strongly recommended (required). I can only assume the forest is gorgeous and the trees are huge, but all I can confirm is that the well built boardwalk will fit your average stroller with about 2 inches of clearance on each side and that you can get about 25 feet down the boardwalk before a series of steps begin and your wife tells you to turn back for fear that your baby will die. If your ego commands you to persist, there are some nice places to stop and read the various information signs and to wring out your soaking wet jacket. The path makes a nice loop and there is plenty of parking. Solid, but very short, nature walk. Highly recommend for summer and when it isn't raining. And don't be a noob and bring your stroller.
  • Great walk through the Rainforest. Love the creepy looking trees with all the hanging moss.
  • Wow. An easy and beautiful and informative trail!! A Must!!
