Hike the West Coast Trail
Vancouver Island, Canada
The West Coast Trail is a 75km (47mi) long backpacking trail that winds its way along the southwestern edge of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It was built in 1907 to facilitate the rescue of survivors of shipwrecks along the coast, part of the treacherous Graveyard of the Pacific. It is now part of Pacific Rim National Park and is often rated by hiking guides as one of the world’s top hiking trails.
