See Community Map

Port Clements is located at the base of Masset Inlet.

The Village of Port Clements is a gateway to exploring Haida Gwaii's rugged west coast via logging roads which eventually connect with the Village of Queen Charlotte.

Things to see or do in Port Clements include:

The Port Clements Museum is operated by the Port Clements Historical Society. Located near the centre of town along Bayview Drive. The museum houses some wonderful examples of the settlement period of the Islands. The yard around the museum is full of well used examples of the machinery of the logging industry, the mainstay of the community’s economy. Admission is $3.

Hike the Golden Spruce Trail. Located 5km south of town towards the log sort of Juskatla, the Golden Spruce grew on the west bank of the Yakoun River. The tree, a Sitka Spruce, had golden needles, the result of a genetic variation. In 1997 the tree was cut down in an act of protest and the story made international news. The trail to the Golden Spruce is still a worthwhile hike and has recently been signed. There is a large sign beside the road with a wide pull out area. The roadway is suitable for smaller 2 wheel vehicles, although caution should always be taken when using these roads.

The Haida Canoe, an abandoned project from possibly 120 years ago is 8km south of the Golden Spruce Trail and is one of the many traces of the Haida’s use of the cedar forests of the Yakoun River Valley. The route to the canoe is well marked and there is a nice trail into the canoe site.

Port Clements hosts the Islands Canada Day (July 1) celebrations which include many activities in the municipal park capped off by a mud bog. Visitors are always welcome to attend all Island events.
