Cedars, White Sands: Juan de Fuca Marine Trail
The Juan de
Fuca Marine Trail has a functional and spiritual past,
linked to the survival of the ancestors of the
present-day First Nations people and the pioneers who
first settled the Port Renfrew area.
The Juan de
Fuca Marine Trail opened on April 1, 1996 as part of
the Commonwealth Nature Legacy that was created in
1994 to commemorate the15th Commonwealth Games
held that year in Victoria, British Columbia.
was created to preserve our living heritage of green
space on southern Vancouver Island, protect the
environment, and provide recreational opportunities
for present and future generations. The
legacy was created by the provincial and local
governments, along with Western Forest Products Ltd.
and Timber West Ltd.
Unlike many other trails, the
Juan de Fuca Marine Trail can be hiked in part, as a day hike, or hiked in four
to six continuous days. Whether you are a novice or an expert hiker, you
will want to experience this new and challenging trail.
