This is a wonderful walk for the below average photographer who needs a boost to his/her self esteem. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE A BAD PICTURE!! This is an easy, well signed path with beautiful vistas at every turn. It is a leisurely walk, not a rigorous hike. Takes between 45-90 minutes depending on the number of times you stop... More

Two loops on the trail. One shorter loop for those that have some difficulty getting around, with a short trail to the lighthouse and a longer loop. Both provide great views of shoreline and off shore islands.

The trail is very well travelled and so pretty flat, wider in areas. It snakes along the coast and most of the time you are looking at the ocean/rocks in its splendor. You can catch glimpses of eagles and otters. It could be foggy so got to check weather not to be disappointed. I took 100 photos of the scenery.... More

A short hike if you left your camera at home! A much longer hike with a camera- too many beautiful spots to take photos along the trail. Exactly what I though Uclulet/Tofino would be like. Easy trail- kids hiked in their flip-flops.

This is one of the easiest and extremely beautiful hikes anywhere. Walking from the parking lot down to the ocean view trail with lots of benches along the way which allows you to stop and take in those amazing views is a must see. Do not miss this opportunity. Well worth a hour or more of your time.

Very scenic walk along the coastline with views of the ocean, tress, small islands but you should wear sturdy boots and bring raingear.

beautiful trail alongside the Ocean and winding throughout the trees. It is well marked and cleared. Stop in at Black Rock resort at the end and enjoy a treat of Breaky or Lunch!

The Lighthouse Loop is an easy and spectacular route that takes you along a well maintained trail high above the rugged rocks and pounding waves of the ocean. There are many spots along the trail where you can sit on a bench, stare out into the ocean or just take in the beauty. It's hard to imagine what it would... More

An easy but thoroughly enjoyable walk, especially on a foggy afternoon. Stunning scenery! Definitely an area to be preserved and protected.
