Attraction details
Owner description: During WWII and The Cold War, Radar Hill was a part of the line of radar installations across the U.S. And Canada, watching for threats of long-range bombers. Radar Hill has a few rare lookout points over Pacific Rim's vast temperate rainforest. A gorgeous place to take in the view, the sweet breeze rolling in from the forest, all while cuddled up gazing over the horizon.

“Ok, but the views are limited”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Worth visiting on a cleat day, but the views in many directions are becoming obscured as the Parks Services allow the surrounding trees to grow, rather than trimming them as was done in the past.

“A fine view, well off the road”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

A wonderful view to the north.
There is a war memorial there.
Little else to see.
We did not do any hiking there.

“See it on a sunny day”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Easy access and has the potential for a great view of the area around Tofino but you need some decent weather.

“An amazing hidden trail..”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

An amazing hidden trail just below radar hill takes you down a med-difficulty trail to a secluded beach

I would suggest this spot to anyone visiting Tofino, either for a first visit, or a returning visitor. A great spot to show guests as well!
