    Some fabulous trees
    Just off Highway 4 between Ucluelet and Tofino, there are two rainforest walks, one on either side of the road. At the time of our visit Walk B was closed. Walk A was mostly interesting. The walk way is a little narrow with no railings at the side, so you spend some time watching where you out your feet. Some fantastic trees to be seen. It is 1200m long but be warned it has quite a lot of steps.

    What a forest!
    Fantastic national park with awesome views and rainforests to walk through. The trees are enormous and it is an excellent example of this type of ecosystem. Would highly recommend the rainforest trail and seeing the different beaches. There are not too many hiking trails here compared to other national parks but I imagine this is to protect the forest. There is good hiking and activities in nearby Tofino and Ucluelet.

    Each area offers unique opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers.
    Long Beach is famous for its long stretches of sandy beaches, dramatic shoreline, and powerful surf. It's a popular spot for surfing, beachcombing, and taking in beautiful sunsets. Visitors can stroll along the sandy shores, watch the crashing waves, and enjoy the coastal scenery.

Stopped to use the washroom for 10 min had a 20$ ticket on my window .Told me I needed a park pass . It was late in the day and I had no intention of using the park. they sit and wait till you park just to ticket you. The greed here sucks. other cars beside us had 2 tickets already .lived a long time on the Island sad to see this.

The nature around the park is beautiful, but the way the park is running everything kind of takes away from the experience. So many park rangers just walking/driving around not really doing much. The spent about 30 minutes following us around to tell us to put our dog on a leash when we were the only ones on the beach, well away from everything. Tried to say it was because of shorebirds, but it's not the migration time and Im sure all your human actives have a great impact than a dog swimming.

This is well-worth visiting for nature lovers. The beaches are amazing, and the forests seem like something out of a movie! Most trails are smooth gravel or well-maintained boardwalks, so it's easy to walk around. There are lots of paved bicycle paths too!

Spent time here with the family in summer of 2022. This park is so large that at least it’s not crammed with people. A lot of very beautiful and wild country. Trails to hike, wandering beaches and bike paths, gives everyone lots of space. We dropped in at the grocery store and then took the short Combers Beach trail to the beach and wandered along till we found a totally secluded spot to have a picnic lunch. We walked miles and miles along the beach. Virtually alone. The beaches further north have more people. Also a beautiful drive to the west side of the island. I think at one place it shows a 17% grade on the road. Easily spend 5 days or even a week depending on interests.

Probably one of the most beautiful places in Canada. A friend called it spiritual, it definitely is awe inspiring. During a stormy day with high winds, the power of the ocean is memorizing. The day after the storm with the sun breaking through the clouds is even more so. Do all the beach walks. The two short rainforest trails are very beautiful. So glad we experienced this national park.
