The Pacific Rim Park Reserve is a must visit for all those travellers looking to truly experience the wonders of the West Coast. Take the day exploring the coastline, the incredible trees, coves and even hot springs.

Take a walk on the Wild Pacific Trail and it will weave itself into your soul, whether this is your first visit or a daily ritual.
This easy, family-friendly trail traces the edge of reefs where shipwrecks, whales and vistas abound. You will be enthralled by Vancouver Island’s dramatic beauty and helpful interpretive signs will enrich your visit to Ucluelet’s famous 9km trail network. A perfect destination for photographers, storm watchers, bird watchers and hikers of all abilities. Wheelchair access is available at the lighthouse area.
The trail can be walked in two main sections. Section one is a loop starting near the lighthouse (overlooking the Broken Group Islands of Pacific Rim National Park). Section two extends 5 km north from Big Beach Park. Then you can leave the wind-sculpted coastline to visit the largest trees in the area at Ancient Cedars grove. Breathe in the heady scent of a stand of trees over 800 years old!
Many visitors travel from great distances to experience this spiritual retreat. It is no wonder that a multitude of languages can be heard as you stroll past frequent benches tucked into frequent viewpoints.
The entire trail enjoys a dense rainforest canopy providing a natural umbrella in any weather, so any time of year is a rewarding time to visit. Come see us at the front desk or send us an email if you would like to learn more and start planning your next trip.
