A coastline hike along the southern tip of the Ucluelet B.C. Many benches and viewpoints along the way, including a lighthouse. 

Drive south west on Coast Guard drive to the parking lot for the wild coast trail to your left (where the pin is). Park in the parking lot, and head to the trailhead where the big sign board is. We completed the lower loop in approximately one hour, but you can continue up the coast all the way in to Ucluelet if you are so adventurous. 

This is a prime spot for winter storm watching as it is very accessible, not very exposed, and has lots of options to return to the car. 

On a nice day, bring a snack and stop at one of the many benches and viewpoints along the way. A great spot to take in ocean views!

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Quick & Easy

Nothing too adventurous on this trail, but LOTS of lookouts and stunning views. Trail is well taken care of. Shouldn't take you longer than a couple hours even if you stop at every marked vista.
