Beautiful scenes of the raw ocean. Trails are very close the the rocks for great views. No serious slopes to navigate.

This is a beautiful rugged loop trail. We loved it! The trail takes you along the rugged and beautiful coastline and then also through some old growth forests

Lovely walks with ocean views throughout. We visited whilst the sun was shining, however I can imagine it's just as pretty when it's wet and windy. Lots of seating areas and look out points to stop at throughout and just enjoy the views.

Beautiful wild and remote, loved it all. Looks and feels different in all weathers so don,t be put off rain or shine. Fantastic part of Vancouver Island and well worth the effort to get there after first exploring the North around Telegraph Cove which is also superb for those wanting to explore the wildlife

The view changes so much within very short distances. Plenty of viewpoints with benches to sit and behold the stunning scenery. Put this on your bucket list. West of the lighthouse was one of my favorite areas of the trail.

Absolutely stunning scenery. I went on a very nice day and it was excellent but I bet when the waves get going that would be a great sight too! This is a stunning walk.

No matter how often I do any part of this trail, I am always in awe of the beauty nature affords us here. Come rain or shine, Summer or Winter the trail skirts the rocky shoreline amongst the rainforest with breathtaking vistas and mesmerizing closeups of moss and lichen draped trees that have been part of the landscape since ancient...

A walk on the Wild Pacific Trail, the Lighthouse Loop, takes you through beautiful Rainforest trees and has many places with spectacular views of the Graveyard of the Pacific .

Did the lighthouse loop. Beautiful scenery and the trail was well maintained. Lovely views of the surf and breakwater. I would recommend walking it counter clockwise though. All the benches are in the beginning if you don't.
