Forest Trail

Hike or ride in almost any direction from Powell River and you will be enveloped by the forest.  We live in a coastal rainforest environment where trees grow tall and the undergrowth is lush.

Large second growth trees cover most of the hills and mountains.  You see, we are logging country.   They've been reaching for the sky for almost a hundred years now. Down below it stays cool and moist thanks to an almost complete sky covering, with just enough sun peaking through to make everything grow green and lush.

It's always beautiful whether you look down or up. -- Margy

  5. Wonderful! I love standing under these tall, tall trees and looking upward! You caught the feeling perfectly. By the way, I think I can smell that strawberry jam cooking . . . Heavenly!
