JUAN DE FUCA TRAIL: BOTANICAL BEACH

ESPAÑOL

3.25 km tour whose last part connects with the beginning, or end of the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. Wikiloc link of our route:

Compared to the rest of the path, Botanical Beach is not big deal. It is a very short section, although quite representative of the entire Trail, near Port Renfrew. The circular route from the car park is just 2.5 km, we walk some longer because we wandered along the beach.

You can see areas of cliff with conifers and twisted trees as a result of the usual strong wind, which impedes their proper growth. On a good day it is a popular area for families, as apart from tables and chairs, skeletons of giant trees have been prepared on the beach as shelters. There is an infinity of great size mussels, although it is not allowed to take them, a real pity…

A short distance northeast of Port Renfrew, there is a small lake with a campground, which certainly lives up to its name, the Fairy Lake.
