This easy coastal path is great walk around the coastal headlands. There are views of the Barkley Sound, Amphitrite Lighthouse, Inspiration Point, and He-Tin-Kis Beach. There are no stairs on this route and motorized wheelchairs may be able to navigate the path (there is a paved pathway to the lighthouse only). Check with Ucluelet's Wild Pacific Trail.

Great walk, lots of viewpoints. Suggest to start clockwise to the lighthouse first.

Great hike. Lots of places to get down to the rocky parts and the ocean. Beatiful forrest easy to hike. My boys 1,5y and 5y had lots of fun when walking around. Even on a rainy day easy to hike around. Path is graveld most of the way , not to muddy. The forrest will be your umbrella.

Best trail in the area! Stunning views. Repeatable.

Nice loop trail, going to the left at the trail head takes you thru the woods. To the right gives you views of the shoreline.

We went when the weather wasn’t clear as we were short of time. Despite of the light showers, one can still hike as the pathway is clear and filled with gravel so it wasn’t as muddy as expected.

The trails are wide and in good condition. Stairs get you to some beautiful look out points. Beaches are available throughout to take in the scenery. Fairly well marked, but I felt that some of the signs were positioned in such a way that you would really only see them well if you did the hike starting with the lighthouse instead of ending with it.

Not really a hike, as such, because of the simplicity. The gravel trail is well maintained, with plenty of lookout points. About as simple as it gets.

good trail, maintained path

Short but delightful hike with so many lookout points.

Gorgeous coastal trail....wide, flat, and smooth (very accessible to nimble strollers. Little view points with benches all along the route - perfect picnic sites. At low tide can get down to the beach.

The trail has amazing ocean view. There are plenty of viewpoint spots. The trail can easily be done by families. There are areas where you can go down to the ocean and the beach, would definitely recommend. You can get closer to the lighthouse if you scramble up the rocks, it’s not allowed though.

Love this light house trail. Once you get back to the rod crossing you could just take a right and walk 300 meters to the parking lot if you don’t feel like hiking another 1 km in the woods to get back to your car. But in my opinion it was worth the tranquil time walking the extra trail.

Not a difficult trail, this one is a must when visiting Tofino. Also check Lone Cone.

A nice little easy and fast trail to walk or run. Nice lookout of points and lots of benches throughout the trail to stop take a break and enjoy the view.
