Default North Coast Trail and Cape Scott - July 5-9, 2012

Day 1 - Shushartie Bay to Nahwitti River

I hit the perfect weather window, although the first day was a brutal, muddy bog slog due to weeks of prior rain. It was a huge relief to finally break out onto the beach.

Day 2 - Nahwitti River to Shuttleworth Bight

This stretch has a nice mix of terrain: beach, inland, and many quick ups and downs.

Day 3 - Shuttleworth to Nels Bight

A long push. 20+ KM on the NCT will punish your body, but gaining a rest day on the beach at Nels made it all worthwhile.

Day 4 - Day hiking around the Cape

Day 5 - Nels Bight to the trailhead

More easy hiking to catch the shuttle. I ran into a large wolf on the trail just after the old Cape Scott community ruins.
