Pacific Rim National Park Reserve
Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is composed of three geographically separate areas and is part of the national park system of the Parks Canada Agency. The Long Beach area is located between the villages of Ucluelet and Tofino, and named after the 16 km (10 miles) sandy beach of Wickaninnish Bay. The Broken Group Islands is an archipelago of more than one hundred islands and rocks scattered throughout Barkley Sound and are accessible by boat only. The West Coast Trail is a 75 km (47 mile) backpacking route along temperate rainforest, sandstone cliffs, waterfalls, caves, sea arches, sea stacks, and beaches.
