My wife and I visited Ucluelet and Tofino and highly recommend a visit to the park trails. Highlights were the rainforest trail. We also did the bog trail and Florencia Bay. Many in and out trails are closed due to COVID which was unfortunate. A day pass for two cost $20 and is valid until 4pm the next day. Well worth it to see these trails and support upkeep of these treasures!

Lovely wander around the laid out walkways dotted with information boards. You need to buy a "park pass" from the car park which costs $21 for 2 for a day. This lets you visit all the beaches as well

Probably one of the most beautiful places in Canada. A friend called it spiritual, it definitely is awe inspiring. During a stormy day with high winds, the power of the ocean is memorizing. The day after the storm with the sun breaking through the clouds is even more so. Do all the beach walks. The two short rainforest trails are very beautiful. So glad we experienced this national park.

I'd call this area of land a fine example of nature preserve. You can explore some of it without fee, but it's probably best to visit the visitors' centre to discover all the park has to offer. No parking is allowed without this permit, however the drive through the grounds shows the beauty of the forested area. There are many trails, both wooded and beach and work continues to make the area more user friendly.

Perhaps another year will be better. Showers closed up while people bathe in washroom stalls, dish sink area, campsites and outside cold water shower area. Makes absolutely no sense. Provincial campsite showers are all open. The experts keeping saying wash your hands cause the virus doesn’t survive hot soapy water. Plus the bathroom doors are wide open yet we are warned about bears. The guy selling wood is completely freaked out about visitors. “Get away from me” were his words as I asked about the wood.

The roadside biking trail appears newly constructed and paved. We did see a bear on the bike path! The inland hiking has many trails, while the beach areas seem never ending. Great untouched beauty.

We stayed at the Blackrock Resort in Uculet which is set on the ocean with picturesque views. What made this an amazing experience, was the friendly and helpful staff at the front desk (specifically Julie) and also, we paid an upgrade fee to get into a signature room which was over looking the water! Wow..what an incredible view we had!!! We could hear the sound of the waves while enjoying coffee in bed or out on the sundeck all while enjoying the humpback whales migrating through. Highly recommend this property!

During our stay in Tofino, we explored several trails within and outside of Pacific Rim National Park. Park management has done an incredible job providing board walks through some otherwise inaccessible terrain allowing for a truly incredible experience in the rain forest. Both Rainforest trails are worth the hike and at approximately 50 minutes including photo stops easy to handle.

Only had half a day to spend here and even that was worth it. Could have spent all day on Long Beach alone. Lots of marked trails, but most of them are easy loops. Those who feel hardy enough could probably do them all in a day. (Note that you likely need to cycle or drive between the different trail entry points, as the highway cuts through the Park.) If you're short on time, a visit to the beach and the Rainforest loop is good way to get the highlights.

Sunsets are easy to find in Tofino, but we wanted to see a sunrise. We went for a quick drive and stumbled upon the parking lot for this park. Beautiful purple sunrise graced us.
