Juan de Fuca Trail

Jordan River - Port Renfrew, 47 km, 4 days

The Juan de Fuca Marine Trail is a rugged, strenuous, 47-km-long backpacking wilderness trail that follows the southwestern edge of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The trail is located in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park. Juan de Fuca is also the name of the strait separating Vancouver Island from Washington State.

A bit to the north of this trail starts the popular West Coast Trail, another pretty wilderness trail.

The coastline is very scenic. The sea carved the sandstone in beautiful shapes. Most beaches are primarily pebble beaches.

Bear in mind Vancouver island is infamous cougar (puma) country, even if changes are rare you will ever spot one. Also, black bear roam the area. Take precautions. If you're lucky, you will spot grey whales in the waters. Some parts of the trail follow the shore, so get yourself informed on the tide schedules, and beware for rogue waves on the beach. Temperatures are moderate, but rain and fog is the rule. Camping is permitted at designated sites.

  • Positive cheaper ($5 per night) and less crowded then the west coast trail. Still the same beautifull forrests and scenery. Almost no improvements like you'd find on the WCT. A lot of Roothopping and climbing. Very strenuous, especially when its wet.
  • Negative too short! ;) Quite a few day hikers.
