One of our favourite places to walk. Although it is not a lengthy walk, take your time to take in the views... especially during a good storm. Be sure to stop in at the lighthouse for a good view as well.

We walked several parts of this trail while we stayed in Ucluelet and we were soooo impressed! The first part we walked was the Amphritite Lighthouse Loop, as the trail started right beside our accommodations. We spent about 2 hours on the walk, because we kept stopping to admire the view.

An easy way to see lots of coast line. A nice gravel path allows for access to many overlooks along the west coast near Ucluelet. Be sure to get a map online or in town when you arrive. I enjoyed the isolated feeling of the Rocky Bluffs to the north. Also enjoyed the Artist Loops.

The views! Stroller friendly trail. Climb the rocks by the lighthouse for even greater views but don't go too far.

A walk catering to hikers not wishing a difficult trek along the ocean with absolutely beautiful wild ocean views. Eagles and other birds and a tree landscape scarred by the gale winds and salt wrack. This a must for anybody visiting Tofino or Ucluelet
