Last week I set out to document some of the giant cedars of Stanley Park. This place is Vancouver's signature park and a wonderful urban oasis. To it's western side are awesome, cliff-side views of the cityís Inner and Outer Harbors, and, of course, the largest remnant of old-growth forest in the metropolitan area.
Iíve found that the largest and old trees are primarily situated on the southwestern section of the park, west of Highway 99 (Stanley Park Causeway). All three of the photos pictured here, are taken by exploring the dozens of informal side trails that branch off of the paved trails.
Some of the most ancient cedars and Douglas firs in the park are located south of the east-west Meadow Trail & Lake Trail, and north of Lees Trail. The best section to focus on is around the Lovers Walk/Tatlow Walk and explore north and south of there. Some of the cedars right off of these Walks are amazing but itís always best to push into the forest for a more authentic experience.
