Roberts Memorial Provincial Park features a lovely 1km trail through mature Vancouver Island forest to the beach overlooking the scenic Stewart Channel.

Amazing Relics of the Region's Past

Prehistoric Petroglyphs

The Petroglyph Provincial Park allows visitors to travel back in time, over 1,000 years ago, with traditional prehistoric First Nations carvings. An interpretive area with information boards helps visitors decipher the petroglyphs, as many of them were made for meaningful purposes before the people had written language. Children and history buffs enjoy making ‘rubbings’ of the petroglyphs, by gently placing paper or cloth over the carving and lightly rubbing a crayon or wax to form a reverse impression.
