Walks & Hikes
We live on the coast and we are surrounded by forests and mountains. For those who enjoy time in nature, the nearby communities of Ahousaht, Hesquiat, Tofino, and Ucluelet have developed a number of trails and hiking paths that can offer an opportunity for quiet serenity or a vigorous challenge. Local companies offer experienced, enthusiastic guides who can show you the hidden gems and make the terrain come alive as you walk boldly through the forest, and we encourage you to take advantage of their expertise.
On your own, you may find a completely empty beach, a hidden cove, or even a memorial to bravery and fortitude in the Korean conflict. You can have a close encounter with local wildlife, so have your camera ready. Delightful spots to sit and have a picnic or take a panoramic photo to frame later are but a pathway away. The coast is magnificent, the woods will challenge your senses, the proximity to the ocean will calm your spirit. For locals and visitors, we invite you to reconnect with nature. Get your boots on, take the fist step, and go take a hike.
