The West Coast Trail is a 75 km trail Between Bamfield and Port Renfrew on British Columbia’s, Vancouver Island, Canada. The trail can be hiked North or South, and takes approximately 5-7 days to complete. The trail follows a challenging mixture of ladders, bridges, bogs and rivers through the forest and on the beach.
The trail was originally built in 1907 to facilitate the rescue of shipwrecked survivors along the coast, known as the Graveyard of the Pacific. It is now part of the Pacific Rim National Park and is often rated by hiking guides as one of the world’s top hiking trails.
The West Coast Trail is open from May 1 until September 30. It is accessible to hikers outside this period, but Parks Canada does not guarantee the accessibility of services (such as search and rescue) in the offseason.
You can find more information about the trail on the Wikipedia page here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Coast_Trail
If you are interested in reserving your spot for the upcoming season, registration generally opens around January, and you can reserve your spot here: http://www.pc.gc.ca/en/voyage-travel/reserve.aspx
I recommend booking as early as possible, as spots fill up very fast. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
