The Wild Pacific Trail in Ucluelet only runs about 8 km, but is ‘wild’ as promised, with wide open vistas of the Pacific Ocean and beach access at several points.
Free walking sticks for the trail. A small lighthouse on the 2.6 Loop Trail. Sunlight flaring through through the trees.Tangle of trees on the trail.When I first saw this it seemed to be more than just driftwood; then I saw a sign saying it was the remains of the Big Beach Mystery Shipwreck, probably from the late 1800s.At many places the trail opens up to vistas of the ocean. Natural arbour.Driftwood on the beach.Blocked stairway.The skeletons of dead trees. Blue Jay made of driftwood.Another place where the trail opens up. I love the hand-made railings.And another fun sign…Map of Vancouver Island going from Parksville or Qualicum Beach on Hwy 4 to Tofino, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park.
