You can reach Carmanah via logging road out of Lake Cowichan or via Port Alberni. If renting a vehicle, it must be a 4x4 or it will have no insurance for gravel roads. There are signs at key intersections.

This panorama of 10 stitched images was taken near Carmanah-Walbran Provincial Park, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, June 29 2017. This is temperate coastal rainforest but summer 2017 was hot and dry. On this evening, at a logging road campsite, I set up a tripod and 300mm telephoto to take photos of the sun setting through a light west coast mist.
