Marvel at towering trees and lush foliage at Cathedral Grove, a living remnant of the island's ancient forests. Pay a visit to this section of MacMillan Provincial Park to see colossal Douglas-fir trees, the largest of which stand at a height of more than 75 m (250 ft) and feature a circumference of 9 m (29 ft). Wander along the network of walking trails that crisscross the area and admire these old-growth evergreens, some of which are nearly eight centuries old. Keep an eye out for falling branches and animals, such as bears, elk, cougar, and owls.
