The West Coast Trail or previously known as the Dominion Lifesaving Trail is an iconic backcountry trail that will challenge you while exploring the southwest side of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The history of the West Coast Trail hike dates back many decades when the trail was first used for trade and travel by the first nations and later to rescue shipwrecked survivors along the coast. The West Coast Trail difficulty is rated as moderate to tough and requires thorough preparation. So it receives its reputation as it makes you climb up and down approximately 100 ladders, lets you wade through ice-cold rivers and fast-flowing waters, and wade through deep mud all while you have to battle the weather's temperament. Having said that, the trail is more than worthwhile as it leads you through the mesmerizing Pacific Rim National Park, rockpools with panoramic views, rain forests, and remote sandy and rocky beaches. What makes the West Coast Trail route even more spectacular is the opportunity to spot a variety of wildlife, from black bears, cougars, and deer on dry land, to orcas, sea lions, and killer whales in the ocean. So how long does the West Coast Trail take? Well, with a length of 75km/ 47 mi, it could take you anywhere from 5-7 days to hike the entire length of the trail. And as the trail can be hiked in either direction, the West Coast Trail starting point lies at either Gordon River or Bamfield.
