[FONT="]There are two sections of a long trail that the Canada Parks acknowledges.
I need to point out that Parks Canada (or "Canada Parks" as you spell it here) has absolutely nothing
to do with Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park. The governing body responsible for the park is the British Columbia Ministry of the Environment, and the people who maintain the park are K2 Cowichan Park Services Ltd. Once again, Carmanah Walbran is a Provincial Park, not park of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada.
As you are sharing your photos here and elsewhere, please ensure that the information you share with them is accurate and well researched as these areas are very susceptible to damage and Parks Canada and BC Parks follow very
different rules and maintenance regimes (I've worked with both).
I also need to point out that as of a couple of years ago with a washout on the southernmost accessible meander of the river, Randy Stoltmann Commemorative grove is closed to the public.
Several of your photos also include shots of people standing at the base of trees. BC Parks specifically
asks for all users of the lower valley trails to remain on trail at all times due to the sensitivity of this habitat. Again, with the responsibility of protecting the things you are photographing, please respect these rules.
Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park is currently closed to the public in its entirety.
A landslide occurred at the end of January cutting off the road to the park. It's questionable when or if this road will be repaired any time in the near future as there is no active logging anywhere close to the park entrance.
