Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Vancouver Island / Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District / Clayoquot Sound / Tofino / Tonquin Park
Walkers of all abilities should be able to tackle Tonquin Park, a scenic trail that passes through rainforest and the Pacific coast. Meander through the lush forest before alighting on the pristine beach as your final destination; round-trip, the hike totals 2.6 km (1.6 mi). While sturdy boots are always advisable for treks, the gravel road here gives you more grip than many other coastal and forest walking routes. Using our world travel planner, Tofino attractions like Tonquin Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Tonquin Park reviews
I did not have a lot of time in Tofino but this was a beautiful walk as I was able to visit at low tide. The view is stunning and the air refreshing. You will not be disappointed I hope this area... more »
Make sure to include the connector portion which includes majestic trees to add to the beautiful beach experience. more »
Awesome fairly secluded sandy beach. Easy walk from tofino community hall parking lot, one set of stairs at the end to Tonquin beach. Took less than 20 minute to walk in. There are more trails down to third beach and middle beach. To see all the trails it would take between 50-70 minutes. All trails are well marked with signs and maps.
It's nice, with small and sheltered beaches. I prefer the scenery at Comber's Beach down the highway about 20 minutes... For me, if I'm in the area, I like seeing and hearing the big waves, not the sheltered nooks, but if you are looking for something different, fill your boots. There is an outhouse near the parking lot.
