Beautiful Photos From The West Coast Trail, British Columbia, Canada

West Coast Trail, Pacific Rim National Park, British Columbia, CanadaThe West Coast Trail is a 75km trail along the western edge of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. It was originally created in 1907 as a way to help rescue the survivors of shipwrecks. Now the trail is part of Canada’s National Park system, hosting a maximum of 68 hikers per day from May 1 thru September 30. The trail’s diversity makes it a challenging hike. Winding through wet jungle terrain and sandy beaches, beauty can be found around every corner.


In July 2014, we spent 5 fantastic days on the West Coast Trail. Though it was difficult, we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the trail. Here is a collection of our favorite photos. Enjoy!

Leaf faces! These covered almost the whole length of the trail…either someone was very bored or the leaves somehow end up with faces? This circle arrangement was obviously man made.
