Skookumchuk Provincial Park provides a wonderful place to see the power behind tide currents of the ocean, backdropped by more and more typical B.C. scenery - clear cut logging. The trail in is an easy grade and should promote some contemplation of the old-growth stumps with their spring board cut eyes staring out at the passing crowd.
