I got a chance to hike on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island on May 14th.
6 hikes / trail runs.
Parks Canada handed me this map. And recommended a number of hikes.
4+5 South Beach Trail + Nuu-chah-nulth Trail (out and back)
7 Rainforest Trail A
7 Rainforest Trail B
8 Combers Beach Trail
Wild Pacific Trail (Ucluelet) – Lighthouse Loop section
Trails in Canada are as well maintained as any in the world. There is a ton of boardwalk in these temperate rainforest hikes.
Instead of watching your boots, you’ll be looking up at the huge old-growth trees.
When Captain Cook first arrived, the old growth forests looked endless. Only 1 in 10 of those ancient trees still stands today.

HIGHLY recommended. 🙂
