Hiking Trails in Uclulet / Tofino

Hiking

Originated through the vision of Ucluelet’s “Oyster Jim” Martin, and
developed by funds donated to the Wild Pacific Trail Society, the Wild
Pacific Trail skirts the rugged West Coast of Vancouver Island, where the
ancient rain forest meets the headlands and pristine beaches of the Pacific Ocean.
Featuring panoramic views of Barkley Sound and the Broken Islands of Pacific
Rim National Park, the Trail meanders beneath the forest canopy and along a
spectacular coastline abundant with seabirds and whales.
