The Maquinna Trail is nice and easy stroll through beautiful Vancouver Island second growth forest. Located within the neighbourhood of South Alberni in the City of Port Alberni, it is popular with dog walkers, joggers and cyclists. Don’t let the first two sentences of this description fool you – it is a beautiful and well maintained trail. It also connects to the more challenging Ship Creek and Alberni Inlet Trails to the South and the Log Train and Roger Creek Trails to the North, so it can be a starting point for any length of adventure. There are also a number of lesser trails along the way that are perfect for mountain biking. The Maquinna Trail itself is wide, flat and dirt surfaced. There are a number of well-maintained walking bridges along the trail that help cross some of the smaller creeks.
