These are the food items we brought to the West Coast Trail. In total, our food weighed about 16 pounds and it was all gone at the end of the trip! We varied what we ate each day depending on how strenuous the hike was. For the most part, we were satisfied with one MEC package and one Sidekick to full us up each night.


  • Oatmeal – 6 packages (Apple & Cinnamon, Maple & Brown Sugar)
  • Nature Valley Flax cereal (enough for 2 servings each)
  • Powdered milk (enough for 1 litre or 2 servings each)
  • Korean Instant noodles (5 packages)
