Things to Do: 

Fishing - The Salmon River is one of the better known destinations for steelhead fishing on Vancouver Island, before it empties into Johnstone Strait at Kelsey Bay.

Hiking -  There is a maintained trail on the south side of the access road. Hikers can also spend the day on the trail up Mt H’Kusam, called Bill’s Trail by the locals. The 8-hour return trip to the summit (peak at 5,261 feet) will reward you with sweeping views of the area, including the village of Sayward, Kelsey Bay and the Salmon River estuary and wildlife reserve
