West Coast Trail

The West Coast Trail is advertised as one of the top five hikes in the world. We hiked it in August, 1999, and it lived up to its billing. Here is our trip report: "Saskatoon Does the West Coast Trail" (by Warren & Bill, with comments and derision from all). (click on the text or the photo)

Here is Tour Canada's description of the West Coast Trail.

David Foster, author of "Blisters&Bliss" has this website Tips 'n Tales about the West Coast Trail

Since doing the hike 7 years ago, I have gotten a fair number of emails from people who have read through our little trip report, and then gone and done the hike. Thanks for the emails. Here are links to sites that a few of them have put up.

Here is all the stuff that I carried in my pack. This is on Day 6, so the personal snack and lunch stuff is now minimal!

A list will follow... one day...
