The astonishing variety of terrain in and around the Comox Valley constitutes a hikers' Valhalla. The wildlife is a bonus.
Stathcona Provincial Park
Strathcona Provincial Park, created in 1911, is the oldest and largest provincial park on Vancouver Island. Today it offers a trekker's feast of at least 40 hiking trails. They range from day hikes to backpacking trips deep into the forests for weeks at a time. All lead to stunning beauty and adventure in an unspoiled, untrammelled wilderness.
Comox Glacier Trail
The great-great-great granddaddy of all hikes comes recommended only for seasoned hikers: the Comox Glacier Trail. The K'omox First Nation knew the glacier as Queneesh, the great white whale. It looms, flat-topped, over the Comox Valley like a headless giant. Hikers and mountaineers have been meeting its challenge since the first ascent of the Glacier in 1922.
