This weeklong hike along Nootka Island’s west coast includes waterfalls, beaches, rocky headlands, and old-growth forests, as well as a journey back into the origins of British Columbia. Okay, so it’s not technically Vancouver Island, but the hike between Louie Bay in the north and Yuquot in the south provides opportunities to view whales, sea otters, and other marine life in a stunning wilderness accessible via Vancouver Island’s west coast. Take your binoculars and be prepared for other hikers. This trail is rapidly gaining in popularity.
