About the Juan De Fuca Trail.
Juan de Fuca Park on the west coast of southern Vancouver Island offers scenic beauty, spectacular hiking, marine and wildlife viewing, and roaring surf in its course along the Pacific coastline of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The trail is renowned for its mud, rain and never-ending views. It is also has unpredictable weather, challenging terrain and ever- changing conditions result in many hikers needing to be rescued from this trail each year.

This trip is for lightweight backpackers. Starting pack weight should not exceed 30lbs total given the distance and elevation for each day.

Any questions, message me.
