Ferry Island Trail (Enchanted Forest) in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada is an extensive network of walking and hiking trails meandering through forests along the shores of the Skeena River located on the southern portion of Ferry Island.

The island, at one time, got its name because it was a major hub for two riverboat ferries during the early 1900`s. A ferryman lived on the island, a First Nation riverboat captain, who operated the ferries. In 1936, the island was 8 feet underwater because of the great Skeena River Flood which took out the bridge built in 1925 and was the last time someone lived on the island.

Today, the trail system follows a circle route for 2.8 kilometres and is used by joggers, dog walkers (dogs must be leashed on the trail), fly fisherman and, even, cross country skiers in the winter. On the south end of the island is an off leash area for our four-legged friends and some, from what we hear, some good fly fishing holes.

One of the major highlights, besides being active, is the carvings found along the Ferry Island Trail carved into the bark of the trees. There is said to be over 55 carvings hidden in the forest. All were carved by a local artist, Rick Goyette.

The trail system is a gem, with 2 picnic shelters, 2 picnic table areas and a campground nearby with an onsite caretaker. The amenities, the trail and the Skeena River attract many every day to Ferry Island.
