Wild Pacific Trail, Ucluelet
(4.9/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Mother Nature's unbounded beauty can be seen and felt at every turn along this trail. Lovingly cared for and easily accessible to all, the Wild Pacific Trail is a gift for all. 
  • Nice hike along the Westcoast of Vancouver Island and view the rugged coast line and the raging seas. Trails are clean and easy to follow and have lots of view points. Brian and Jan, Surrey B.C 
  • If there is one thing you should do, it's the WPT. The WPT lighthouse loop is incredible. We loved getting caught in the rain and exploring the coastline. Views were to die for and would recommend for...  more »

  • Great trail to do if you come all the way down here. You get the best of all worlds. Beautiful coastal views, the oldest cedars on the west coast and tons of access to beaches and private beaches too!
  • Don't even think about visiting Ucluelet without hiking the Wild Pacific. Such great views! Good job on building it and I can't wait to see the extensions.
  • One of our favourite hiking trails. Awesome for Winter storm watching and watching local bird life. It's also easy on the legs with plenty of places to take photographs and sit down. Look out for the local eagle who sits at the top of the tree on the small island in the inlet. Great place to go on Christmas Day and walk off Christmas lunch. Wave at the camera at the lighthouse too but be careful climbing the rocks, those waves are deceptive.
  • beautiful views and pretty easy walk. Suitable for the elderly and kids as well... we went with our 6 and 10 year old and also with my mom... they did fine
  • Fantastic hiking trail. Highly recommend. Take the time to do the Arists Loops, Ancient Cedars, and Bluffs. Can easily be done in 2.5 hours and is not overly strenuous. Beautiful views.
