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.

Great hike but pretty difficult to make it to the plane. Wear rain boots!

It was a good trail through a forest with lots of shades of green then opens up to a great coast beach with good sized waves!

short but sweet hike takes you on a short excursion through stereotypical coastal rain forest and delivers you onto a classic west coast beach which stretch for kilometers. kid friendly. boardwalk and stairs.

Beautiful trail very fun elevated path through some amazingly lush forest. There are two paths here A and B. Path A is currently closed due to damage was not clear when it will reopen.

Easy trail, all of which is structured by wood trail sections and stairs marked every 100 meters with an oval metal marker giving you the distance travelled from the parking lot. The beach is similar to other area beaches. When I arrived we could smell a fishy odour that we could not attribute to anything we could recognize. On the beach you walk along a First Nation community houses. On the beach we observed litterings of plastic bottle caps and other small items most likely left by visitors of the area. Shame! Please don't litter and take back what you brought along. The hike is pleasant and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

The Kwisitis visitor center and Wickanish beach are in this area. The visitor center has many informative exhibits and clean restrooms. Parking costs about 20 cad for a family. The beach is great for a walk and you can see ball seaweed washed up on the beach.
