The beaches are amazing and beautiful. As it was recommended by several people, it is worth getting a pass for the park. If not, consider how often you go to the Park and try to make the most of your visit(s).

Just beautiful.............no other words can describe this park. In the past we went to this park with our children year after year, while living in Calgary. This was our Summer treat. It is a great experience for families with small children. There is always something new to see and experience at the Pacific Rim National Park.

We spent two days walking the trails in the Pacific Rim. If you only have time for one trail then walk one of the rainforest loop trails. Simply amazing.

The information we found online was not very accurate saying trails were easy but with stroller and mobility issues with stair they were... More

Enjoyed many varying trails in Pacific Rim National Park where the ocean meets beautiful old growth forest. There are trails of every skill level. Maps can be picked up at the visitor's centre.

Great views of old growth in well maintained boardwalk. Unfortunately, we chose the one part which wasn't easy to use. Other sections were fine, and could take a doddering old person.

There are several small/short hikes in the park - we did them all and I can recommend doing them all. Lots to see and do. Walking through a silent forest is nourishing for the soul. Stepping out of the forest onto the beach - well thats just a small piece of heaven on earth right there!

We arrived at Pacific rim national park late at night, a sheet was left at the office to fill out and put on our camp site. The next morning we went into Tofino to check out the surf shops. When we got back to the park we where stopped very rudely at the office. This was my first encounter with... More

I found this park stunning and unspoiled, this is what heaven looks like! We had great walks on the well manicured trails. I could stay here forever and never get bored with the views.

Beautiful scenery, wonderful hiking trails, active ocean waves for excellent surfing (of course the area is known for it) and many delicious places to eat at the end of an activity filled day!
