Tall Trees Trail

On sunny mornings it gives shocking perspectives on Prince Rupert harbour, furthermore, the encompassing mountains.

Roughly 4.5 km one way. The beginning of this as of late refreshed path is only a few hundred meters past the Butze Rapids parking area, on the inverse roadside. This climb will take you 450 meters up the side of Mount Oldfield.

The principal segment is broad and generally level yet rapidly gets steep, making this a decently troublesome climb.
