West Coast Trail, Canada


Originally uploaded by Guidodjones.

Guy Jones posted a terrific set of photos from their group trek of the West Coast Trail. “The Best Hike in the World” we often call it.

It was an early season adventure — May 2006 — but they lucked out and got some blue skies. The “ship wreck coast” of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada is infamous.

The photo is stunning Tsussiat Falls. Just one of dozens of highlights on the WCT.

It’s a coastal route of 75km (47mi), at C$140/person plus C$25 reservation fee, by far the most expensive hike in Canada. On the other hand, you won’t find many hikers complaining if they manage to snag one of the precious quota spots for July and August. Only 52 “Trail Use Permits” are available starting each day.
