West Coast Trail – Vancouver Island

I am looking for experienced hiking/trekking partners who want to hike the West Coast Trail. The trail requires permits to be reserved in advance so I don’t have fixed dates but ideally would like to do this in May/June. My plan is to hike the trail south to north, doing the harder parts of the trail first up when the legs are fresh. If your interested let me know and we can take the planning from there.
A little bit about me: I am an experienced hiker, having worked as a hiking guide in New Zealand and done quite a bit of day and multiday hikes.

  1. Hello Katie, my name is Dan, I have done quiet a bit of hiking and a few multiday/overnight trips in recent years throughout Canada and Europe. I really want to do the west coast trail preferably in June. Are you still looking for partners?

    • Hey Dan, thanks for your message. I am indeed still looking for a crew to hike the West Coast Trail. I am flexible on dates but someone else has messaged me about starting on 31 May for 7 days – would those dates be something that might work for you? Let me know your thoughts. Then maybe we should line up a time to Skype. Cheers, Katie
