Things To Do
Port McNeill rejoices in unspoiled wilderness. It enjoys an ancient First Nations culture, spectacular coastal setting, lush rainforest and the Broughton Archipelago, its islands and wildlife.
Pack the days with hiking, walking, bird-watching, caving, whale-watching, sea kayaking, fishing, diving and Aboriginal culture. Pack the camera.
When to visit? Spring, summer and fall are the favored seasons for Port McNeill.
Hiking and Walking
Port McNeill proves a natural hub for north island hiking. A popular and accessible trail for newbie hikers is the relatively short, 3.7km/2.3mi Marble River Trail in Marble Creek Recreation Park. Seasoned hikers may prefer the challenge of the 48km/30mi-roundtrip Cape Scott Trail in Cape Scott Provincial Park. It's second only to the West Coast Trail in BC hiking fame.
