dayhiking Pacific Rim National Park

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.

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.
