Owner description: Walk the Wild Side is a 11km hike historically used by the Ahousaht people. Visitors now have the opportunity to experience the culture of the trail while hiking along forest boardwalk and 8 gorgeous beaches. Used by the Ahousaht people for thousands of years, Walk the Wild Side Trail is an 11km escape into the remote wilderness of Clayoquot Sound. First restored in the early 1990’s, Walk the Wild Side Trail has developed into must-see ecotourism destination for those visiting Tofino and Ucluelet. Take a tour through the Maaqtusiis reserve and then head out on to the trail with your Ahousaht Heritage Trail guidebook for the ultimate cultural experience!

You can see almost everything on this trail, ocean life and beautiful rain forest! Such a great walk to take with family or your sweetheart!
Even nice to do in the rain, gives you a feel for being out in the elements and feeling the rugged west coast

Brilliant trail along the pacific coast - make sure you walk all of the different sections. Fantastic for wildlife spotting - we say Killer Whales off the coast as well as Garter snakes on the path.
