Nootka is easier. The beachwalking can be gravelly and bouldery like North Coast, but the inland sections tend to be easier. Minor scrambling, 2 spots where you use ropes to go up steep areas but not too difficult (I can free-climb the tougher). Lagoon to the first beach is the toughest, 45 minutes worth, where you may crawl on hands and knees through the mud, but it's a pretty short section and none of the other short inland sections are swampy (usually decent trail). Nothing as bad as the swamp around Nahwitti Cone (Laura Creek to Nissen Bight). Mostly beachwalking for most of the trek. Short days, and the beaches are nicest at the north end.
Thank you. From what I've read there aren't any pit toilets. I'm wondering if there is a mess of toilet paper like I've seen in so many places without facilities or are there designated places to do your business.
