Cathedral Grove in MacMillan Park on Hwy. No. 4 between Parksville and the Albernis is a living monument of giant Douglas Fir Trees and other native species.
The largest are 800 years old, but most sprouted when a fire opened the forest about 300 years ago.

To give it a little perspective: The oldest trees sprouted when Genghis Khan was alive - or about 300 years before Columbus found America!
