Mount Waddington Regional Parks on Vancouver Island.


The Regional District of Mount Waddington encompasses the northern third of Vancouver Island and a large area of the adjacent mainland. The Mount Waddington region comprises 8 spectacular parks….

North Island Beaches

Vancouver Island North is lined with beaches – some easily accessible, others remote – and dotted with lovely green wilderness parkland.

Cape Scott Provincial Park combines both in one supremely natural package; walk 45-minutes on a flat, wheelchair accessible route to San Josef Bay or spend a full day hiking through old-growth forest out to the more remote tidal flats.

You’ll find green spaces just about everywhere in this wilderness landscape. Some of the more popular are in the Nimpkish Valley near the hamlet of Woss – among them Schoen Lake Provincial Park and Mount Cain. Marble River Recreation Park on the road to Port Alice is a favourite getaway for local residents and visitors alike.

If you’d like to capture what it’s like to be in an episode of “Lost”, hike through the rainforest to the deserted sand beach at Raft Cove Provincial Park near Winter Harbour. Modern-day Robinson Crusoe also enjoy the golden curve of sand that is just a short walk in on the Holberg-area Grant Bay Trail.
