Walk in the footsteps of giants.
Long ago, before there were roads and towns on Vancouver Island...there were giants.
Did you know that The Sitka Spruce, Red Cedar and Douglas Fir grow to be some of the largest and tallest trees on the planet? And that right here in our own communities reside trees that were standing before countries were formed, before wars were fought and before our many of our ancestors arrived on the continent?
This summer, take the Tall Tree Route and visit them. The Ancient Forest Alliance has a fantastic Tall Tree Tour Map and Hiking Guide.
Stand in the shadow of their ancient branches and feel what it's like to travel back in time.
It will take your breath away.
