The Wild Pacific Trail is located in Ucluelet and is a seven phase trail system skirting the rugged cliffs and shoreline of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Overlooking Barkley Sound and the Broken Group Islands to the east and the open Pacific Ocean to the south and west, it offers spectacular shoreline panoramas and seaward vistas through ancient cedar and spruce-framed viewing platforms constructed on the best headlands along the route.

We had an awesome afternoon walking along the coast, I would definitely recommend it. It is worth wearing comfortable shoes.

An easy trail perfectly signaled and very well kept. It's not too long and offers a multitude of scenic view points with benches to rest.

Hiking this trail was an amazing experience. There are many lookout points overlooking the ocean each displaying a different angle of beauty.

These Majestic trees were awesome. The loop is a short 15 minute walk but plan for about 30. Its a part of the Pacific Trail. There is parking off of the road just before you get to Ucluelet. Best to walk in an anti-clockwise direction....More

The trails around Ucluelet were absolutely beautiful. For the most part, they are all fairly easy trails. The loop around the lighthouse was a great hour-long walk with benches and lookouts every few minutes. There are also a few paths down to the beaches that...More

From a short 1km circuit to a 8.2 km hike. The trails are beautifully maintained and signposted. A wonderful traipse through old cedars and mature forest.

If you are staying in the Tofino / U luelet area you must do these walks! The lighthouse route is shorter and a circular trip, the longer walk further west involves retracing your steps or trying to get a lift back to your car. Both...More

Easy trail to hike, the views are fantastic, with lots of stopping points to take photos or just marvel at the ocean, the wildlife and the beaches. If the main car park is full, drive on down to the Lighthouse. There is a car park...More

You bet! We have been there in the winter where we jut pop out on the trail to watch the pounding surf for 10 minutes. Other times we do longer loops. Enjoy!

If you are short on time, the Lighthouse Loop is wonderful as it encapsulates a little bit of everything that the Trail has to offer in terms of scenery. The Artist Loops, on a different section of the Trail, provides... More
