Island and Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve. Both Graham and
Moresby Island parks and trailheads are accessed by vehicle while
Gwaii Haanas is accessed by boat or floatplane only.
Graham Island has many parks and trails to select
from. Most are located in around the main villages of Masset,
Tlell, Port Clements, Skidegate and Queen Charlotte City. The
northeast and eastern coastline of Graham Island falls within Naikoon Provincial Park.
The Naikoon encompasses some beautiful view trails like the East
Beach, Tow Hill and Cape Fife Trails.
The smaller island, Moresby, has some viewpoints
of its own and trails to discover. The Sandspit Loop Drive will
lead most to all the main trails and parks on this island. Some

The Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve is a sacred
park rich in Haida culture and history. The park is the home to
many ancient Haida villages and Totem Poles. So special is this
place that land access is only permitted when accompanied by a
Haida guide or with proper authorization by the Haida people.
Please respect this.

the Gwaii Haanas as the #1 park destination in North America.
