Hike the Wild Pacific Trail

Rate this Adventure Canada Wild Pacific Trail

Added by John Entwistle

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!

Pack List

  • Clothing for the weather - (ie. Rain gear if it is raining)
  • Good walking shoes/ Waterproof boots
  • Camera
  • Snack for one of the many rest points

This is a well-traveled hike, so if you stay on the path, you'll likely need only a good pair of boots.

Snowshoe Mount Tyrwhitt

Canada / Mount Tyrwhitt Parking

Describing snowshoeing trails is always a bit difficult, but luckily the way up Mount Tyrwhitt gets used heavily by people going to Pocaterra Cirque - first thing to remember is to take the first for.
