Lone Cone Mountain is on an island in front of Tofino. The trail has a stunning view of Tofino and the surrounding area. You have to take a taxi boat to get to the trailhead.

Fun and challenging hike. The first, flat section of the trail was boggy so be prepared to sink into some mud if it's rained recently! Definitely happy I was wearing boots and not trail runners. Make sure you go on a clear day!

Great hike. Amazing views and old growth cedar forests. It’s well marked, but lots of roots, trees, and rocks to climb over. Getting down is as tough as going up. This hike Is much more on the “hard” end of the scale, and can be quite challenging esp above 300m elevation. You’re asked to pay $10 per hiker at the camp steward station. Well worth it though.
