“Shipwreck Islands”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Found at the start of the Wild Pacific Trail in Ucluelet. You can't actually go into the lighthouse but the crashng of thr waves against the rocks is a spectacular sight.

“Great Views and a short walk.”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This trail is a must-do. There are numerous look-outs, so even if the trail is busy you can probably find one to enjoy fairly privately. The lighthouse is probably not the highlight, although some interesting information is provided about it. The lookouts are amazing as you make your way around the trail, and many interesting trees have formed along the trail as well. You can read the signs about all of the ship-wrecks along the coast and even make your way down the rocks at some points to get close to the waves crashing in. Makes for a beautiful sunset. Worth the drive if you are staying nearby in Tofino.

“Nice walk great views”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Saw four bald eagles (one even hunting!) on our way to the lighthouse. Nicely paved trail. Easy with kids.

“Unforgetable sunset”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

One of the best places for a lookout in Ucluelet. Gorgeous views. The lighthouse is not accessable but you can climb past it when the tide is low. Sit on the warm rocks and watch the sun going down - West Coast at its best. Walk a few hundred meters on the trail to another lookout point.

“Scenic”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

The Lighthouse was very scenic (if you catch it on a day with no fog) Beautiful at sunset. Also enjoyed the webcam
