Radar Hill, Tofino

2.8
#11 of 19 in Parks in Tofino
Used in both World War 2 and the Cold War, Radar Hill represents both a historical and outdoor activity site. Take a half-hour hike down Radar beach to reach the hill, remembering to wear adequate shoes and clothes, as the trail can get slippery and muddy at times. At sunset, you can enjoy the view over the peninsula in peace, so bring your camera to snap some great photos. Finish your hike by inspecting the crashed bomber plane from World War 2.

  • Great views
  • Lot of hype but leaves you not impressed
  • This was awesome 20 years ago but surrounding trees have blocked much of the view. Great place for hiking thou.
  • Nice views but nothing special.
  • A great place to enjoy the views around Tofino. There is two view points from the top of the hill. It is a steep drive up the hill.
