Ruckle is one of the most beautiful parks in BC, overlooking the Southern Gulf Islands and Salish Sea. Located within the oldest working farm in BC, amongst a west coast Rainforest, it features magnificent old growth trees, beautiful ocean views, eagles, herons, seals and many other nature beings. Visit the many farm stands and artisans on your way to the park!

It is abundant in hiking trails with beautiful old growth Cedars, Douglas Fir and Garry Oaks, rocky shorelines with magnificent ocean views, and open grasslands abundant in native Rosehip and Hawthorn trees.

For those individuals who are interested in a walk but are in need of financial assistance please contact me. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions that you may have! Or subscribe to newsletter to keep up to date on our current offerings and registration links.
For all Forest Therapy walks, please dress for the weather. In the summer months a hat and sunscreen is recommended, as well as a light jacket as the forested areas can still be cool even in warm weather. Please also wear appropriate foot wear, as the trails where we are walking my be uneven in some areas. In the colder months gloves, hats, scarves, rain wear and warm footwear, and dressing in layers, are all highly recommended for your comfort. You may also want a water bottle and a small mat or towel to sit on.
