+ 3 more stars! What a beautiful trail. You can't beat the weather in July. We found a good set of hiking poles alleviates many traction/mud/incline/fatigue issues. Absolutely loved the trail; would recommend the 7 or 8 day version with a rest day at Tsusiat Falls. North to South would be easier because of pack weight loss but South to North offers an easy last couple of days on tired feet. Bring lots of cash (for Chez and Nitinat - you will regret it if you don't!) Happy trekking!

Amazing! We lucked out as far as weather goes. Definitely challenging at times but worth it in the end!

We went in late July, 2016. We had no rain and great tides. This is the best hike I have ever done. It can be challenging at times, but is totally worth it. Absolutely beautiful.
