West Coast Trail - Fire Ban
 
Was speaking with trailhead at Port Renfrew. There is a fire ban in place as of yesterday in all of Pacific Rim National Park, including WCT, till further notice. This also means open fires on the beach.

Thanks for the heads up, hopefully it will be lifted before I head out later this month

There is a fire ban in BC? Oh wow, thanks for letting us know, I couldn't see it through all the smoke around.

Campfires were allowed in the Fog Zone/Belt until the latest update:

What they need is a cigarette ban

I just got back from camping at Green Point at Long Beach. It was hard to believe that it was necessary for a fire ban. It was damp and cold every night we were there.

For sure.. We had a camping spot that didn't get any sun at all, right in the trees.

Definitely appreciated a fire, even with a whole week of clear skies!
