The best beginner hikes on Vancouver Island or near Vancouver?
Me and my friend (we're two Danish guys, late 20s) are going to Vancouver in the middle of July for approximately a week and would like to do a few hikes. However, while we like hiking, we are both beginners, and are therefore looking at single day hikes at around 5-15 km. each - hikes that will be both beautiful and tough at the end of the day, yet without leaving us for dead somewhere in the wild...
We are planning on going to Stanley Park, and then going to Vancouver Island around Tofino and definitely visiting Ucluelet's Wild Pacific Trail. We also wanted to go to the famous West Coast Trail, but it seems you cannot just do a single day hike there, and the half of full week trek is way above our level.
So, do you have any suggestions? Are we right in going to Vancouver Island around Tofino, Ucluelet and Pacific Rim National Park? Or should we ratger go to Garibaldi and the likes instead?
(We're planning on going to multiple hikes in one area, since we only have one week to do it.)
Help is very much appreciated - thanks in advance, guys!
