Calling all hikers, adventurers, nature enthusiasts and photographers-set your sights and cameras on the unspoiled beauty of Mt. Oldfield. Tucked in the Great Bear Rainforest, it offers a challenging hike but the rewards are worth it. After meeting your expert guides at the pier, you'll board a shuttle and head for the trailhead where you'll be equipped with trekking poles and water bottles. Once outfitted, you'll begin your climb with gradually increasing inclines over loose rock that is generally wet. Along the way, enjoy a brief pause at each viewpoint to catch your breath and to take photos. After reaching an elevation of approximately 1,000 feet, the trail levels off with boarwalks nd marshy areas open to the sky. Here, you'll be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the North Pacific Ocean, Morse Basin nd he Coast Mountains in the distance. Relax with a sandwich, soak in the sights and appreciate the natural scenery before hiking back down.
