ONE OF THE WORLD’S LAST STANDS OF INLAND TEMPERATE RAINFOREST
Ancient Cedars/Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial Park protects one of the last stands of inland temperate rainforest in the world. Sitting on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, a wander through this ancient forest can make you feel small.
Explore boardwalks to see 2,000-year-old western red cedar trees dotting the pathways and trails that weave in and out of this forest. The 450-m (1,475-ft) universal access path makes this one of the most accessible areas in BC to see these giant wonders. Another 4.5-kilometres of trail leads to Big Tree, Tree Beard, Radies Tree, and a waterfall. Experienced and prepared hikers can tackle the 15.5-km looped trail on Driscoll Ridge for a longer adventure. Come winter, visitors can roam the snow-covered landscape on snowshoes for an otherworldly experience amongst these gentle giants.
This park is located along Highway 16, mid-way between Prince George and McBride. Visiting this park is an easy day trip from either location or a great place to stop and stretch the legs while on longer road trips through the area.
