Route Description for Toquenatch Trail
Hiking along the Toquenatch Trail is a great way to leave the outside world behind and focus on reconnecting with nature for a few hours. Although the trail doesn’t have any spectacular viewpoints, it does feature an amazing forest setting that you will find yourself fully immersed in. Setting out from the trailhead, the route immediately enters into the dense rainforest in a northwestern direction. After roughly 850 m, you will find yourself skirting along the edge of a more recently cleared stretch of forest before entering back into the thick brush on the way to the northernmost point of the trail. Along the route you will pass by an abundance of small plantlife and even a few mammoth trees as well. When the trail meets up with Plummer Creek Road, turn around and make your way back to the trailhead along the same route that you just hiked to gain an alternate perspective on the forest.
