Travel: Ucluelet Wild Pacific Trail
Ucluelet Wild Pacific Trail – just about 25 km south of Tofino, this trail is diverse, full of breathtaking views, and has some of the largest cedar trees on the island. Okay – let’s checkout the trail and our hike!
Ucluelet Wild Pacific Trail
First, checkout the map – it’s detailed, full of many paths, and has some great lookout points. One trail we wanted to do, yet picked another activity instead (well worth it – and I’ll share later) was the lighthouse loop, looks like a fun little hike. Okay, onto the photos.
We hiked about 5-6 km and started at the sports field, walking on the connection point until we hit the trail around marker 6. Then walked west all the way to meet the bike trail on Peninsula Road, walking back to the car.
This is us, ready to hike, picnic packed on my back, and rain coats ready! It didn’t rain one drop, though. Better safe than sorry, right?
Okay – time for some photos of the trail and the coast.
The gorges (are these big enough to be called gorges?) are some of my favourite features. The washed up trees, aka driftwood, is another favourite. Yet the one thing that’s remarkable is the air. The fresh sea salt air. It’s unmistakably west coast.
Look at those crashing waves! The sound is so calming and relaxing – it’s hard to capture all of those senses or the idea of those senses in photos. So, with that said – hopefully you get to visit one day.
Well, there you have it – a few photos of the Ucluelet Wild Pacific Trail! The trail is wide enough for two to walk side-by-side, which we love. Also, there are handfuls of lookouts along the trail. So, take your time, bring a snack, and enjoy an hour or two on the path.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend! See you again soon.
