Overview

The Wild Pacific Trail is located in Ucluelet and is a seven phase trail system skirting the rugged cliffs and shoreline of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Overlooking Barkley Sound and the Broken Group Islands to the east and the open Pacific Ocean to the south and west, it offers spectacular shoreline panoramas and seaward vistas through ancient cedar and spruce-framed viewing platforms constructed on the best headlands along the route.

It's not very often you get a chance to experience beautiful west coast forest, the ancient trees and the whipping wind off the open Pacific in such an easy and accessible location. The trail is essentially flat and very well maintained and marked, and only...More

we walked an 8 kilometre stretch through a perfectly marked trail and around every bend there was a different perspective to the scenery. Trail was reasonably flat so easy to follow way-markers

We had a lovely stroll down to the lighthouse and back round. Great views and interesting facts as we went. Didn’t see any bears, wolves or cougars mind you

I would go and park by the lighthouse, and do the loop there. It takes about 45 minutes, but you could easily take 90 minutes! Lots of wonderful benches to sit on, and enjoy the view. And take binoculars too. You may see... More

No reservations are needed for this trail. You may be confusing it with the "West Coast Trail", which takes up to a week to hike and does require reservations. The "Wild Pacific Trail" is a day use hiking trail and does not... More
