Dubbed the “Cathedral Grove of Port Renfrew,” Avatar Grove is a unique clutch of old growth in the Gordon River Valley. The focus of efforts to preserve its arboreal riches, it’s home to giant red cedar and rare Douglas fir. If you go, keep an eye out for “Canada’s Gnarliest Tree” — a whimsical knot of twisted cedar. A magical place to peace out and leave your real-world avatar behind.
