COVID-19 Important information about your visit to Pacific Rim National Park Reserve
Parks Canada is pleased to begin a gradual re-opening of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve so nearby visitors can enjoy the beauty of this protected area in a safe and responsible way.
The resumption of services will take time and be incremental in nature to ensure the health and safety of Canadians, visitors and Parks Canada staff.
Please check our website for up-to-date information on what is open and what is closed in the Long Beach Unit, Broken Group Islands, and the West Coast Trail.
We look forward to gradually and safely welcoming you back to Pacific Rim National Park Reserve
Suit up in your storm gear and watch the winter breakers crash on a rocky shoreline, or enjoy a summer stroll along an endless sandy beach. Step out of your kayak to be greeted by a First Nation Beach Keeper, or hear ancient legends told around the campfire by Guardians of the West Coast Trail. Pacific Rim National Park Reserve offers a West Coast experience steeped in nature and history.
The Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada includes three distinct units: Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands and the West Coast Trail. The Long Beach Unit is located just moments from the outskirts of Ucluelet on Highway 4. Ucluelet also offers water access to the Broken Group Islands Unit, an archipelago of islands, inlets, and coves sheltered in Barkley Sound.
The Long Beach Unit offers many hiking trails through rainforests and beaches. You can spend days exploring the trails or the seemingly endless sandy beaches. With sand between your toes and the smell of moss and ferns below towering trees - a trip to the national park reserve is a must when visiting Ucluelet.
