Calling fellow hikers! Hiking the West Coast Trail on Sep 14-22nd
I'm Kim from Australia and I have been living in Lake Louise, AB for over 8 months now.
My friends and I had organised to hike the famous West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, which is rated one of the top 10 hikes in the world. It is only open from May 1 to Sep 30 every year. We had booked 5 spots months ago but I was recently informed that at least 3 of my 4 friends can longer make it so spots are available for at least 3 people. I am still keen to go but don't want to go by myself!
It is a 75km long hike, rated moderate-difficult and we will be camping over over 5-6 nights. It is supposed to be AMAZING!! We have hiking permits (which cost around $25 per person) for Sep 15-21 and have allowed for one travel day on either end to get from Vancouver to the Island and vice versa.

Please note that a lot of preparation is required, so if anyone is interested, please let me know asap!
