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 nature around the park is beautiful, but the way the park is running everything kind of takes away from the experience. So many park rangers just walking/driving around not really doing much. The spent about 30 minutes following us around to tell us to put our dog on a leash when we were the only ones on the beach, well away from everything. Tried to say it was because of shorebirds, but it's not the migration time and Im sure all your human actives have a great impact than a dog swimming.

Long Beach is famous for its long stretches of sandy beaches, dramatic shoreline, and powerful surf. It's a popular spot for surfing, beachcombing, and taking in beautiful sunsets. Visitors can stroll along the sandy shores, watch the crashing waves, and enjoy the coastal scenery.

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.

Spent time here with the family in summer of 2022. This park is so large that at least it’s not crammed with people. A lot of very beautiful and wild country. Trails to hike, wandering beaches and bike paths, gives everyone lots of space. We dropped in at the grocery store and then took the short Combers Beach trail to the beach and wandered along till we found a totally secluded spot to have a picnic lunch. We walked miles and miles along the beach. Virtually alone. The beaches further north have more people. Also a beautiful drive to the west side of the island. I think at one place it shows a 17% grade on the road. Easily spend 5 days or even a week depending on interests.

So beautiful, lots of gorgeous nature to see and we got some great photos. We split our time between hiking trails and exploring the beaches. We have come to Tofino and Ucluelet several times in later summer but late May/early June was better timing - way less hot for us. Enjoyed the forest in the rain.

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.

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.

Just off Highway 4 between Ucluelet and Tofino, there are two rainforest walks, one on either side of the road. At the time of our visit Walk B was closed. Walk A was mostly interesting. The walk way is a little narrow with no railings at the side, so you spend some time watching where you out your feet. Some fantastic trees to be seen. It is 1200m long but be warned it has quite a lot of steps.
