Guardian Cabin

A guardian will be on site in the Guardian Cabin during your stay. Our guardians help the hiker understand the Ditidaht First Nations cultural background (Culture, traditions and language) and historical use and other areas of significance. They advise hikers of public safety concerns, provide first point-of-contact emergency first aid assistance to visitors, maintain contact with Parks Canada Resource Conservation, Public Safety Officers and Wardens and maintain an awareness of trail conditions.

The Trail

The WCT was originally the Dominion Life Save Trail and was created in 1907 for shipwreck survivors. In those days, the west coast was known by sailors as “Graveyard of the Pacific” and shipwrecks were frequent.

The Creek

The peaceful creek is an excellent source of fresh water for your camping experience.

Comfort Camping

Are you are a visitor wanting complete comfort for your trip to the West Coast Trail? How about a hiker searching for a good rest and some respite from the rigors of the full trail? We offer a luxury tenting experience for everyone passing through the Tsuquanah Reserve at Tsuquadra Point.

When you book one of our Comfort Camping tents you get a 4-person canvas wall tent complete with a wood burning stove and firewood, wood floors, table and chairs, wide cots and an outdoor deck with a view, including stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. The site is monitored by Ditidaht First Nation’s own trail Guardians, and is located a short walk from the main trail in the pristine surroundings of traditional Ditidaht lands.
