The Enchanted Forest
Trans-Canada Highway
British Columbia
August 6, 2015

map showing location of The Enchanted Forest

The Enchanted Forest has various hours depending on the date, so call '1.866.944.9744 before you go.

The Enchanted Forest is a unique attraction situated in one of BC’s beautiful old growth forests in Canada’s Monashee mountains, located midway between Revelstoke and Sicamous on the Trans Canada Highway. Skytrek Adventure Park is at the same location but the two RV Gypsies did not visit it because Karen wanted to go to the Hot Springs.

When entering The Enchanted Forest, the first area is the adventure area for children. There were over 350 handcrafted figurines in amongst 800 year old cedars. Karen only took a few pictures in this area.

Then it was on to the Nature Walk Area

The self-guided Wildland Interpretive Nature Walk is a wonderful 2 kilometer walk through a lush BC forest, with a variety of trees including Fir, Cedar, Hemlock, White Spruce and Cottonwood Trees and a giant 800 year old cedar grove!

Along the boardwalk there were many natural displays of plants, herbs and roots. Devil's Club often reach a height of 11 to 12 feet. Giant woodland ferns grow in abundance similar to those of a rain forest.

Lee didn't take any photos, so Karen took a selfie - but she used a real camera with a lens much bigger than on a cell phone, so Karen could not see what she was getting in the photo.
