This trail is considered one of the most satisfying ways to experience the temperate rain forest climate of the west coast. The rugged 77-kilometer journey offers hikers a feast of smooth, sandy beaches, rocky outcrops, caves, tidal pools, and roaring cascades, not to mention old-growth trees such as spruce, cedar, and hemlock. The popularity of this six-to-ten-day trek makes reservations a good idea.

Great hike. Not difficult. Get ready for the rain. Nice opportunity to tent on the beach and meet friends. Do not forget the Burger midway
