Story Trail in the Ancient Forest

Welcome to the Ancient Forest Story Trail

Story Trails are about British Columbians and Indigenous peoples telling our unique stories to our children and the world by transferring knowledge between generations. 

This narrative story trail tells the history of the Ancient Forest/ Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial park, from the perspective of an old western red cedar tree. This tree, who has been living on the land for over 1000 years, has seen the evolution of its home, one of the only known inland rainforest in the world. As you walk this trail, scan the QR codes to hear the old cedar share the story of this unique ecosystem, the significance of the of the forest to the Lheidli T’enneh, and how the Ancient Forest/ Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial Park came to be. 

Following Lheidli T’enneh protocols is important when exploring this magical forest and walking among the ancient cedars. Please keep the following in mind:

  • Walk lightly, leaving no trace behind;
  • Stay on walking trails if you can so you do not trample plants which could be edible or medicinal; and
  • Always carry respect for all life, which includes every animal, plant, rock; They have souls and feelings – they hurt and cry when defaced.

We hope you enjoy this story trail experience!
