Description and Tips

This is a multi-day hike that may change you forever. It’s the stuff of bucket lists. Park your Leisure Travel Van at the Port Renfrew end of the trail. Grab a shuttle to Bamfield, and start there. The West Coast Trail is quintessential west coast hiking: beach, rocks, sand, mud, roots, old growth forest, ladders, boardwalk, bogs, cable cars, and river crossings. Every view is awe-inspiring. Post-hike in Port Renfrew, shower up in your LTV and head to Victoria, BC for some city pleasures!
