Scott Kenny Trail

Scott Kenny Trail is one of the newer additions to the Valley of Trails. It is a multi-use trail that will bring you into the Roger’s Creek ravine. The trail connects Central Alberni to North Alberni with a quality foot/bike bridge across Roger’s Creek. The hike begins with a quick descent down the beautiful shale walls on either side of the ravine.

The trail is named after the former City of Port Alberni Director of Parks, Recreation and Heritage - Scott Kenny. The trail was created in partnership with West Coast Aquatic who helped with salmon enhancement work, creating a channel habitat for the Coho, Chinook, Chum, Cutthroat, and Steelhead that live and/or breed in this creek. You will enjoy amazing views, especially in the spring and fall. It is also a great place to view spawning salmon. A hike along the Scott Kenny Trail can easily be joined with the Wallace Trail and Roger’s Creek Trail network to create a longer more challenging hike.

IMPORTANT – Any of the various trails described on this website might be accessed through, or pass over, privately owned land. It is solely your responsibility as a hiker to ensure that you have the appropriate permission from the landowner before travelling on any privately owned land. When travelling on privately owned land, please be respectful and responsible, to help ensure the landowners future cooperation with hikers.

Whenever you venture into the wilderness it is important that you make someone aware of your travel plans, in the event that an emergency situation occurs. Always make sure that you bring with you appropriate survival equipment when venturing into the wilderness for even the shortest hikes. Be mindful of the difficulty of individual trails, and do not attempt hikes that are beyond your physically abilities or training. The volunteers, and owners, of the Valley of Trails website provide information about trails and outdoor activities in the Alberni Valley, but in no way assume responsibility or liability whatsoever in regards to your safety when venturing into the wilderness. It is your responsibility to stay safe in the Valley of Trails.
