50 mile Vancouver Island West Coast Trail Hike

7 days


50 mile hike along Vancouver Island's west coast, following the rugged coastline.


The trail is open from May 1 to September 30, and you need a permit to hike the West Coast Trail. The reservation system opens in early January, and the spaces fill almost immediately. If you want to have a serious chance of securing a spot, set up an account in advance of the first day reservations open and try to book the morning the system opens.
