Wild Pacific Trail, Ucluelet

4.9
#1 of 164 in Trails in British Columbia
Hike along Wild Pacific Trail, which weaves through wind-sculpted trees, moss, and ferns as you witness shipwrecks, whales, and unspoiled scenery. A good way to see the rugged coast without it being especially challenging, the trail is set up in two main sections. Take time to stop for views from strategically placed seating and watch for eagles and other wildlife. The full extent of the trail is about 10 km (6.2 miles), but it's broken into four smaller loops for less strenuous excursions.

  • Some exceptionally beautiful spots. I found "Little Beach" to be colorful and beautiful at low tide under flat, overcast light. The entire Wild Pacific Trail was a pleasure for its subtle rainforest landscapes, moonscape rock formations, and angry Pacific sea vistas. Time well spent.
  • Spectacular hike. Very worth the 30 minute drive from Tofino. Even on a hazy August day the views were still memorable. Nice addition of a few more kilometres at the end too. We did it in 2 hours. Good elevation changes make for a good workoit.
  • A beautiful scene everytime you looked out. I want to return and try storm watching. Easy, walking path.
  • A favourite of the locals and tourists alike. Stunning views and an gorgeous trail to get an easy (to forget you are hiking) 10km in Ucluelet, BC.
  • Cant miss this trail. Extremely well maintained. Constant breath taking views. Very flat and easy to walk for all ages
