This short loop explores light coastal forest in Queen Charlotte Sound. The forest is quite different from the taller, darker forest of the nearby James Vogel Track. 

Mistletoe Bay is a campground situated in Queen Charlotte Sound. There is road access, and parking for day visitors. Find the track by heading down to the foreshore and following the sign to the right. The track starts at the forest edge.

The track climbs onto the hillside above the sound and leads around a small cove before stretching out onto the peninsula and branching to make a loop. Follow either path out along the peninsula to a lookout rock with broad views across the bay.
