      The Non-Camper’s Guide to Hiking the West Coast Trail If you are also like me (and will never camp again), borrow as much as you can from friends, keep an eye on Craigslist, and watch for sales at MEC and Atmosphere (and REI for my American readers) – because hiking the trail can get pretty expensive, awfully quickly. Our West Coast Trail Guide was borne out of our experiences with helping people on the trail. We offer a full preparation course. At the end, you will be able to decide if you want to go the trail on your own, fully prepared, or take a guided tour from a company that sets it all up for you.

      There is the West Coast Trail Express bus that makes things convenient, taking hikers from Victoria and Nanaimo to either entry point, plus the midway entry, Nitinat Junction, daily. It is not what most of us would call cheap and you need reservations for it. THE WEST COAST TRAIL AND NITINAT LAKES: A TRAIL GUIDE [Canada] 5th revised ed Paperback Fine (Sierra Club of British Columbia).

      We took the Juan de Fuca Express with Brian Gisborne back from the West Coast Trail and this was a GREAT decision. The cost may seem prohibitive at $ yet if you consider that the standard cost of the shuttle is $ on a bumpy logging road with saddening views of the extensive clear cuts in the area then an extra $pp is worth it!5/5(). A West Coast Trail guided tour is one of the best hikes in BC. If you are hiking Vancouver Island, find your bliss on a guided hiking adventure in Canada's premiere wilderness areas. If you are planning on hiking the West Coast Trail, consider a warm up on another BC hike, the Nootka Island Trail as well. It is one of the best places to hike in BC.
