One of the longest trails in the Long Beach Unit of Pacific Rim National Park, Wickaninnish Trail follows a portion of the original Tofino-Ucluelet land route. Passing through a variety of ecosystems including beaches, forest, and wetlands, the trail sports the old corduroy-surfaced road beneath encroaching layers of sphagnum moss. Petroglyphs showing five animal figures can be found on a rock face near the end of Quisitis Point. Follow the cliffs around the end of the point to find them.

The trail appeared to be well maintained and much used, however, the abundance of raised wooden planks that cover much of the trail make for a slick experience this winter season. Drainage is less than optimal and it gets very muddy on most of the trail, and views of the bay are limited. It would be a great summer hike for your family.
