“Beautiful Walk”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

A lovely walk with great photo opportunities. The lighthouse it self isn't that spectacular but the walk is beautiful with great views.

“A must view”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

How can you possibly come to Ucluelet and not visit the lighthouse area. During the summer we can see whales right from the shore. Last summer there were Orca whales near shore. Today (February) a really good wind with crashing surf. The trail is easy walking and the lighthouse is a 5 minute walk from parking

“A good place to watch the waves”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

THis is an excelet place to come and storm watch! It is a popular place to walk. It is really popular at sun set. THis is part of the Wild Pacific Trail that runs in two parts along the coast of Ucluelet.

“A must! One of the most magic walk trail in the world”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The most important is to start the trail at the right moment in the day, to take advantage of the changing light. In August the ocean was rather quiet when we visited, but it can be very exciting to discover the area with more wind and waves.

Very quiet place, very few visitors. Avoid walking on the rocks, it's really risky!

The lighthouse is not really impressive, the funny activity to do is getting lost in the trees, around the surprising and changing trail vistas.

“Amazing West Coast Hike”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

There is a constantly changing vista presented at each of the many viewpoints and the 2.5km trail covers a huge range of environments plus there is a lighthouse to explore as a bonus!
