There is some outstanding hiking in the mountains around Revelstoke, with trails for every skill level, starting with very easy.
Go with a guide, go with a helicopter or go it alone – well, with at least one other person, please.
The Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail
Pull off the TransCanada Highway into the parking lot, and stroll through a stand of trees that have been growing there for a very long time – some were seedlings when Christopher Columbus arrived on the continent. The always shady, 0.5-km/0.3-mi trail is well marked and mostly level. The trees are kind of humbling. Look for highway signage 30km/19mi east of Revelstoke.
This moderately difficult hike begins near the summit of Mount Revelstoke. Park at the Balsam Lake parking area and either walk or take a short ride on the shuttle bus to the Jade Lakes Trailhead.
