We walked 3 different sections of the trail the last few days and the people who designed it and maintain it have done a fantastic job. The section of the trail in town with benches and washroom facilities was kept spotless. The new section to the north is absolutely beautiful, no ugly man made barricades or fences but are made...

Well maintained and easy walking trail. Multi use for walkers, strollers and many benches along the way to take a break and enjoy the view!

Be ready to be taken away by the beauty of the Wild Pacific Trail. There are a number of benches at scenic spots along the way so you can sit and just take it all in.

We had the chance to hike two of the Wild Pacific Trail hikes. The view points on the lighthouse trail were incredible and provided lots of photo ops!

We loved this hike! This is a well maintained trail, through ancient forests and along the very edge of the ocean, an easy hike. You can get some great pictures of the ocean and bluffs. Stunning. You can hike the whole trail, or parts of it. When we finished we enjoyed lunch at Fetch. We defiantly were hungry when we... More

This trail exceeded our expectations. It follows the coastline around Ucluelet & has amazing views & picture taking opportunities. The Amphitrite lighthouse portion was our favourite especially as it was pouring rain & the winds were very strong. Not living near an ocean this was a rare occasion for us to see nature at its best.

This is a beautifully designed and maintained trail, through ancient forests and along the very edge of the ocean, an easy hike -- "a walk in the park" in a relatively remote area. You can hike the whole trail, or parts of it.

Make sure to check out the Rainforest Loop A trail! Stairs a bit slippery so make sure you have shoes with a good tread on them! Don't forget your camera the trees and views on the trail are amazing!

Walking trails are a must for me, and this one is not only fairly extensive, but a work in progress with more to come. To me it is a great part of what makes Ucluelet a good place to be.
