This dramatic hike begins by following a level trail to San Josef Bay on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island. Where the San Josef River enters the sea, vast sand beaches complete with caves and sea stacks await the shoreline explorer. For those interested in a spectacular viewpoint, a rugged trail leads from the beach to the peak of Mount St. Patrick, offering a 360-degree panorama of the Cape Scott coastline, the Scott Islands, and the open Pacific.
