I wanted to visit this as we know parts of the TCH very well and had not been before. As others say, a little underwhelming, but then after all it is just a sign. I would not make a special trip, but if you are...More

Mile Zero is significant because of what it is (the far end of the Trans-Canada Highway). More importantly, it is inspiring because of its connection to Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope. It's in a grassy park, so there's plenty of room. I went...More

A beautiful park literally yards from the Pacific Ocean. Depending which direction you are travelling it is either the beginning of the trans-Canada highway or the end. Parking on the street right next to the park. Note also the tribute to Terry Fox just a...More
