The Carriere Trail is a well maintained path that connects Central Alberni to South Alberni through the Dry Creek ravine. The trail follows Dry Creek on the north bank for most of its length, before descending to a dramatic high-level crossing of the creek, and making its way up the south bank. Most of this beautiful trail is built among the stunning Vancouver Island coniferous and deciduous second growth forest. There are views of the Alberni Valley along the way. Keep an eye out for the various off shoots of this trail, which connect to different neighbourhoods. If you’re looking for a more extended hike, there are many opportunities to connect the Carrier Trail with some of the valley most iconic hiking trails.
