Visit the Wetland Ancient Forest on Highway 16E ,115 km East of Prince George. Warning, this is a spiritual experience of the highest order! The majesty of nature and its incredible beauty is on display here in a way that must be experienced to be understood. It truly defies description.
There are many amazing one day trips from Prince George in the center of British Columbia. One of the most fascinating is the Ancient Cedar Forest. These stunning Cedars, dating up to 2000 years old, are some of the oldest and largest ever found. The stand was a surprise find by some Forestry Researchers from the University of Northern BC (unbc.ca). The Cedars are towering with amazing gnarled branches reminiscent of the “Lord of the Rings”. The ecosystem of the Ancient Forest is mysterious itself and supports many rare and fascinating plants, lichen and fungi, some waiting to be identified!
The trail takes about 2 hours return and is easy walking for the whole family. The BC Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers Guild has members in Prince George who would love to give you more information.
