Wild Side Trail
Wild Side Trail Hike Overview:
The Wild Side Trail is 11 km of beach, trail, and boardwalk providing an escape into the remote wilderness of Flores Island and Clayoquot Sound.
This trail has been used for thousands of years by the Ahousaht First Nations to connect the tiny First Nations village of Maaqtusiis to the beautiful sandy beach at Cow Bay.
Participants must be comfortable on rocks, sand and uneven ground. This hike is easy - moderate in difficulty.
We will meet you in Tofino at 8.30 am. From here, your day of adventure begins with a relaxing boat ride to a remote beach on Flores Island. Hiking the beautiful beaches, trails and headlands provides a great way to truly experience this amazing coastline.
