The recently opened North Coast Trail takes in Cape Scott and a beautiful remote stretch of the North Coast of Vancouver Island. This is our most demanding and remote coastal hike and is best suited to the more adventurous hiker. This 7-day trek has more elevation gain and loss than our other coastal hikes and is more rugged in general. But the rewards are great on a hike that takes in tremendous coastal wilderness in a remote setting which few people have seen.
