3. West Coast Trail
Where: Pacific Rim National Park
Time needed: 5 – 7 days
Dogs Allowed?: No
Details: Probably the most iconic hike in B.C., the 75 km West Coast Trail draws hikers from all over the world. The views come at a price, however. Ladders, bogs, and tidal crossings all conspire to slow hikers down in this rugged territory. Permits are also required to gain access to the trail.
