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.

The first day we walked from the Black Rock Resort, the 3.5 k mark, to the end, 8 k. point. The trail is exceptionally well-maintained, with chip trails most of the way. The artist's loop is especially nice, with frequent scenic viewpoints and spots for artists to set up their easels. At the end, I went down to a surge... More

The whole loop of this trail breaks into amazing coastal views. Protected coves, raging waves, lighthouses and crazy tourists risking their lives on the surf beaten rocks. The trail is well maintained and allows for numerous protected viewpoints......many with areas to sit and wonder.

This was our very first time in Ucluelet and we are not disappointed. I had planned this trip for us with one main reason, to propose to the love of my life. I decided that it would be awesome to hike the Wild Pacific Trail and pick out a perfect spot to accomplish this. Of course the trail did not... More

I walked the 2.6km loop near the Amphitrite Lighthouse. It was a fantastic walk. The trail is well done, but does have alot of up and down small hills. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon when I did the walk by myself. This trail gives you many viewing points and I noticed quite a few benches. For those wanting to... More

Beautiful and easy walk with lots of pullouts to take the scenic pictures. This is a must if it's rain or sunshine. The views are spectacular. Expect to be there for a few hours to fully enjoy it all.

Get a. Real feeling of the Wild West Coast. This is the open Pacific and less travelled than the beach walk of the Pacific Rim Parks. Good walking shoes or boots useful depending on weather but pretty easy walk. Bring some snacks and have a picnic. Nice stop is to go into the lovely resort ,Black Rock. Wonderful location. Dress...
