Beautiful Wilderness: The West Coast Trail

Written on August 10, 2012

West Coast Trail

The West Coast Trail, located in British Columbia’s Pacific Rim National Park is an internationally acclaimed hiking trail offering 75km (46mi) of spectacular untouched beaches and forest. Originally built as a life saving trail for ship wrecks in the area called the Graveyard of the Pacific, the trail is now known for its spectacular coastal views and an abundance of wildlife including cougars, black bears, wolves, grey whales, sea lions, eagles and tiny sea creatures living in tidal pools.

Vancouver is the closest major production centre. Entry is possible by sea or helicopter and by land through Port Renfrew or Bamfield.

The remote and ecological sensitive nature of this location means a small crew and light equipment are essential to minimise impact.

August is an ideal time to film on the West Coast Trail as much of the rest of the year is very wet with shorter daylight hours.
