Default West Coast Trail Booking / Planning

We got our first choice of August 02 start date. Starting at Pacheena Bay.

We have five nights and six days.

So far we are thinking -
Day 1 - Pacheena Bay - Tsocowis Creek
Day 2 - Tsusiat Falls
Day 3 - Carmanah Creek
Day 4 - Walbran
Day 5 - Camper
Day 6 - Gordon River

Will anyone be on the same schedule / have any thoughts?

We are going Aug 8, north to south as well. Your plan sounds good. Try this link below Dougz who is a club tread member did a great post trip report.

We didn't get our June 29th start date, and everyone had to pre-book holidays already, so hitting Nootka trail instead.

Default Booked quick

I got on the website acouple of hours after it opened. Three of us wanted to go. Nothing available for the dates we'd chosen. My partners couldn't chance a walk-on spot because their vacation days are limited. I was really surprised that things booked so quickly. I couldn't bare the thought of not doing the trail so am going to solo it from the south end on July 04.

We were hoping for Aug 1st (most efficient use of holiday time), but the July 30th works just as well. It also turns out that the tides around Owen Point are more favorable, so it may turn out better in the end

Is that 3.5-4 hours one way or round trip?

One way. It takes about two hours to drive from Alberni to Bamfield depending on your vehicle and how you are willing to drive it. Another 1 to 1 1/2 hours to Nanaimo from Alberni.

Is there another water taxi, or is the bus the only other transportation option?
