Best place in the park. It looks like a long hike, with lots of stairs and broad walks, but the view and walk on the beach is worth it!

We almost missed this section of the trail. Easiest way to find is to start at the Black Rock Resort Hotel. The section of the trail is easy walking. The scenery is spectacular

This is a big park, no areas to stay at the park but I believe there are campsites as well as lots of hotels/motels nearby. for camping please visit the National Parks website or Google it.

can't bet on the weather, however november can be wet. so you'll have some great storms. bring boots and rain gear and watch the slippery trails. any day and type of weather makes for a great day on the west coast!

Strongly reccomend Cobblewood Guest House in Tofino if you are looking for a comfortable quiet stay. Also, try the Shelter restaurant. You will love the ambiance, food and local beers on tap.
