Telegraph Cove rejoices in unspoiled wilderness.
With its benevolent climate and natural terrain of rainforest, islands and mountains, it's a natural hub for hiking on northern Vancouver Island and has some of the most adventurous and varied hiking in BC.
Hiking near Telegraph Cove encompasses terrain from the Nimpkish Valley to Cape Scott Provincial Park in Port Hardy (home to the famous Cape Scott Trail), and includes literal peak experiences from mountain climbing to heli-hiking; hiking tours are available. For easier or moderate trails, take a short boat ride to scenic Malcolm Island, which offers routes with bird watching sites and views of the bay.
Ideal for novice hikers is the most popular, accessible, 3.7km/2.3mi Marble River Trail leading through rich, verdant rainforest in Marble Creek Recreation Park.
In Cape Scott Provincial Park, those balking at the challenging Cape Scott Trail will feel vastly more comfortable with the 1.5 hour hike to San Josef Bay and back. The trail even accommodates strollers.
