Backed by the Vancouver Island Range and facing the open Pacific Ocean, Pacific Rim presents the rich natural and cultural heritage of Canada's west coast. Its cool and wet maritime climate produces an abundance of life in the water and on land. Lush coastal temperate rainforest gives way to bountiful and diverse intertidal and subtidal areas. These natural wonders are interwoven with the long and dynamic history of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations and European explorers and settlers.

Short trail with a steep hill down to the beach through a sitka spruce forest. From the beach you can continue to explore Pacific Rim National Park's fantastic beaches

Relative to other trails/walks in Pacific Rim National Park, this trail is not as exciting, the beaches you visit are nice and secluded though (Kwistis and South Beach). The South beach trail itself only goes as far as it's namesake beach the connecting trail to Florencia Bay is actually the Nuu-Chah Nulth trail.

Very nice short trail. Interesting landscape, like walking through a Dr. Seuss book.

Gorgeous short trails into the rainforest, lots and lots of stairs

so much fun navigating around the mud and to find this at the end of the trail!

A difficult hike through lots of mud!! Well worth it though as the destination is fabulous. Definitely need hiking boots.
The trail starts easily enough and you go through an abandoned building (a bit weird, but legit) before continuing on through the bogs.
