Mora Beckons

While winter still clings to the park's mountainous interior, the coastal and lowland areas offer many options for springtime walks and exploration.

At Mora, the half-mile long James Pond Trail winds through the coastal forest to the edge of James Pond. Early spring wildflowers including trillium and salmonberry are blooming, making this a perfect place to explore and experience the warming days and longer evenings.
