The Big Tree Trail at Wanachus-Hilthuuis (Meares Island) Tribal Park is under the stewardship of the Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks Guardians. Tribal Parks are a modern approach to park management based on Traditional Teachings.
Originally built in 1984, the trail was constructed by Tofino ornithologist Adrian Dorst and his friends, as the Tla-o-qui-aht, together with environmental organizations, were successful in protesting MacMillan Bloedel’s intent to log Meares Island.
This trail is a mix of rainforest floor and cedar plank boardwalk. For more information visit Tofino Trails, or email us at email@example.com.
