A few FACTS
Strathcona Park is the oldest park in British Columbia and biggest park on Vancouver Island and was BC's first Provincial park founded back in 1911 on March 11 of that year.
The park is 245,807 hectares in area and has the highest mountain on the island, Golden Hinde (2205m) along with several others lofty peaks also, within the park's boundaries we have Della Falls(440m) the highest falls in Canada.

only one road (Westmin Rd.)into the heart of the park and that's it to that eyesore of a mine, Myra Mine(the old Westmin mine). a few logging roads get get into the park when parts were illegally removed
