West Coast Trail Crew

When you hike this challenging trail, you will be glad to have the West Coast Trail crew hard at work.

West Coast Trail Crew

Thousands of people travel from all over the world every year to take on the rugged West Coast Trail.

The Huu-ay-aht Group of Businesses has a contract with Parks Canada to maintain the first 25 km of the trail. The Trail Guardians are Ambassadors of Parks Canada. Many of our Trail Crew are Huu-ay-aht First Nations citizens, and they share traditional and cultural knowledge to the hikers on the trail, as well as inform hikers of safety concerns on the trail.
