Tofino & Ucluelet Travel Guide for the West-Coast of Vancouver Island BC, Canada

Wild Pacific Trail Society

Village: Ucluelet
The Wild Pacific Trail located in the District of Ucluelet is a seven phase trail system skirting the rugged cliffs and shoreline of the westcoast 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.

The trail is presently divided into 3 sections: Lighthouse loop, Big Beach and Brown's Beach.

Hikers get an up-close-and-personal look at the ocean's fury while viewing from the protection of the trail itself.

Carefully hewn by hand through old-growth thickets of twisted trunks, limbs and roots, the trail is a natural treasure-house of forest treats, including untouched examples of gigantic nurse-logs, raised root systems, mosses, fungi, lichens and ferns - offering the photographer unique opportunities to capture close-up images of nature imitating art.

At all times the views along the ever-changing outer coast afforded by this route are breathtaking - sunset and sunrise are a must see. Storm-watching is a natural on this trail with many breath-taking views 20-30m above surge channels and outer reefs constantly pounded by ocean swells. During the annual gray whale migration (late February to late May), whales can be spotted not more than 5 km offshore of this location as well as sea lions, seals, mink and otter playing in the nearby surf.
