The North Coast Trail is a wilderness walk along beautiful beaches and through wild forests around the northern tip of Vancouver Island. The total length is only about 46 km, but you will have to walk to the trailheads. This trail links with the Cape Scott Trail.
This part of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, has an abundant wildlife: you might spot deer, elk, black bears, cougars if you're very lucky, wolves, seals, sea lions, grey whales, sea otters, porpoises and lots of sea birds. The mist and rain enhance the solitude of the forest.

- Positief The remote feel the trail gives you. The beautiful pristine but rugged coastline and the wildlife encounters ( bears, wolves, whales, etc.). You can combine this trip with the Cape Scott Trail and I would highly recommend doing so and add some days to just linger about. The trailhead can be reached only by water and the trail ends on a remote parkinglot. Arrange your pick up in advance @Port Hardy
- Negatief Not so much dislike, but it is good to realise before you embark on this adventure that the path can get quite muddy (knee deep at places after heavy rain) and sometimes you will feel that there will be no end to that long slug across pebbled beaches....There is no hut or foodsupply possibility: so you will have to bring all food and campinggear.
