Alder Trail, Campbell River, Vancouver Island
There is a short but decent trail that can be found right at the Alder Medical Center, it is accessed from the upper parking lot, at the back end. When i take one of our family members to see the doctor, i usually head out to walk this trail while i wait for them to finish up at the docs.
For being in such an urban location, i am always amazed at the amount of bird life that can be seen here. I have seen many songbirds but there are also squirrels and the occasional raccoons that can be found here in this hidden urban oasis.
During the spring, you can see a wide variety of wildflowers blooming trail-side. This is a very pleasant trail to just spent a few minutes walking along. I have seen lots of folks that will take their lunch and spent a bit of time outdoors to eat. Its good for your well being to get a bit of nature daily. This trail makes it easy to do just that.
