I am looking for another person to hike this trail, summer 2017. I live on Vancouver Island and need to get this off my bucket list. I have tried but my friends keep backing out.. If this is of any interest to you please get back to me. I know the Canada website says sold out but we can go " Stand By ", this is not a big deal. Park Rangers want you to experience the trail. They will let a few extra hikers on from their " Quota ". Have a great day.
