Ancient Forest

Intrigued by the name, we pulled into the "Ancient Forest". It turned out to be a recently constructed boardwalk trail through a stand of old Western Redcedars, possibly as much as 2000 years old. (They're hard to date because the center of the old trees is normally rotten or hollow.) If you're driving by and you have the time it's well worth the stop. (Assuming you like big trees.) It's about 36 km west of McBride. (where there's a good coffee shop and gallery in the train station at the end of main street)
