The Rainforest Trail in Pacific Rim National Park, Canada

Al was quizzing the tourist office on this “really cool trail full of boardwalks that was supposed to be in Ucluelet”.

The only place they could think of that had boardwalks was the Rainforest Trail in the Pacific Rim Park, about halfway between Ucluelet and Tofino.

It was sunny the day we were there, but this would have provided a ‘sun’ on days when the ‘rain’ forest lived up to its name.
