Walk along beautiful alpine meadows, creeks, and ponds on this 2 km trail. The trail is wheelchair and stroller accessible. 

Strathcona is the oldest provincial park in British Columbia and on their centennial year to celebrate, they built a 2km "every-body" accessible loop trail. It is wheelchair and stroller friendly, with boardwalks and large gravelled trails. 

If you are looking for a quick hike with a taste of the alpine or a family that wants to get outside then this little hike is a perfect place to start. Please make sure to stay on the trails.

Google Map directions from Courtenay BC can be found here.  

To get to the trailhead you need to get to the Nordic Lodge at Mount Washington.

I grew up on Denman Island BC, Canada and now I am currently based in Prince George. I love hiking, photography and road trips. I'm also a huge waterfall junkie.
