The West Coast Trail is Vancouver Island’s best-known trail, but it’s just the beginning of spectacular coastal hiking. Find out about 10 distinct hiking areas in this guidebook, including the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, Nootka Trail, Wild Pacific Trail, Cape Scott, Carmanah-Walbran, and routes on the Hesquiat and Brooks Peninsulas. New to this edition are the North Coast Trail and the Tatchu coastal hike on the Rugged Penninsula. Each hike has detailed info about distance, time, difficulty, trailheads, and special features. There’s also a primer on how to use tide tables, tips on campsites and side trips, and black and white photos to give you a hint of the mossy forests, sandstone shelves, and white sand beaches you'll encounter on these routes.
