Things To Do in Beaver Creek
Beaufort Range and Log Train Trail
Beaver Creek runs along the base of the breathtaking Beaufort Range. The highest peak of the Range is Mount Joan, standing a dominating 5105ft above sea level. Meandering through Beaver Creek is the historic 22km long Log Train Trail. The Log Train Trail began as part of the Bainbridge Mill rail logging operation, being abandoned when the mill closed in 1927. The Port Alberni Equine Society have been pivotal in the Trail’s revitalization and maintenance. The Trail is a multiuse pathway that is utilized by Alberni Valley hikers, horse riders, fur & human parents and cyclists alike.
McLean Mill Historic Park is a world famous destination that has recently opened a multiuse campground, provides a stunning wedding venue, has daily tours and is a throw back to a bygone era at the turn of the 20th century. There are original buildings still standing that have been frozen in time with authentic décor to send your imagination soaring. Creating a genuinely unique experience at certain times of the year, you can board the steam train from the historic train station in the heart of Port Alberni, over some towering and historic train trussells, all the way to the Mill. If you are lucky, or perhaps unlucky, you may even be held up by the notorious horse mounted thieves, the Beaufort Gang, so don’t travel any precious gems unless you want them stolen by the infamous train robbers.
