West Coast Trail

West Coast Trail

September 18 to 23 (6 days)

This has been a dream come true – hiking the West Coast Trail! I went with my friend Chris and we had a blast. It is considered to be one of the best and toughest hikes in the world. It is a 75 long Km trail from Port Renfrew (Gordon River) to Bamfield (Pachena Bay).  We didn’t need a reservation since we did it in non-peak season. We also decided to start from the south first (Port Renfrew) to get the hard stuff out of the way. The first few days of our hike were a bit wet but then we had two solid days of sun and then the rest of the week was even wetter.

The following is a summary of our 6 day hike plus the extra two days we stayed at Pachena Bay campground. Enjoy the read!
