The trees along the Cameron River in Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island, British Columbia are a prime example of what type of greenery grows around a rainforest. Moss thrives in the wet forests in Cathedral Grove as it grows on fallen trees, branches and trunks of trees and stumps that have been in MacMillan Provincial Park for years.The Cameron River flows through MacMillan Provincial Park where huge trees hang over the banks of the river. Swimming in the river you can see rainbow, brown or cutthroat trout that make their way up the river and like to circle around the base of these magnificent trees.The trails that one can follow along the Cameron River are not near as busy as the ones throughout the main area of Cathedral Grove. Cathedral Grove is where most of the tourists come to see hundred year old Douglas Fir trees but near Cameron River and Cameron Lake you will find very old Western Red Cedar trees.These river trails are extremely peaceful and the moss covered trees are untouched by any human interference. When hiking along the Cameron River, keep your eyes open for any signs of wildlife such as deer, owls, woodpeckers, black bear, elk or cougars.Cameron River along the Riverside Trail in Cathedral Grove in MacMillan Provincial Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, North America.
