The West Coast Trail is a world-famous coastal backpacking trip in Pacific Rim National Park. Our objectives will be experiencing an incredible adventure and learning about backpacking in a coastal environment.
Experienced hikers only.
The West Coast Trail is an iconic backcountry, multi-day backpacking trail that is a bucket list challenge for many hikers. It is an experience that can bring even the most experienced hikers to their knees. Those who are well prepared physically, mentally, and equipment-wise, come away with tales of grit.
Hikers climb more than 100 ladders with a heavy pack, trudge through deep mud, wade through mountain-fed rivers in fast-flowing hip-deep waters, and push through whatever weather the wild West Coast delivers — often driving wind and rain.
