Cape Scott Trail

(North Island)

Cape Scott Trail is an incredible hike along the rugged, empty coast at the top of Vancouver Island. Within the boundaries is a weather beaten wilderness that has sea stacks, remote beaches,  Sitka Spruce, Western Cedar and more. This trail can be hiked any time of year but in the summer there is less mud and is a relatively easy hike for beginners and intermediate hikers. The weather is very unpredictable at any time of year, on the north part of the island so make sure you have fowl weather gear.

Camping Fees:

$10 per night.
