The West Coast Trail is a challenging 47-mile hike delight between Port Renfrew and Bamfield on Vancouver Island. A hike of the entire trail takes 6 to 10 days so prepare to camp out in weather that varies (there is rain, but more sun in summer months). Keep your provisions spoil-proof, as you will be on your own for food and water. Good preparation, including spare pants, hiking shoes and hiking socks, will ensure that your West Coast hike will be one of the best you've ever experienced!
