Shedding Light (ness) on the North Coast Trail on 11/09/2010 14:31:10 MST Print View

Canada's North Coast Trail is one of those hikes that needs careful consideration. You are lucky if you get great weather, and kick yourself for bringing the extra warm clothes and rain gear. You are kicking yourself if you forgot that stuff and weather behaves as normal. Either way, this is a trail best done as light as possible. It is rugged. Over roots, through mud puddles, over craggy headlands-you want to be maneuverable, and lightness is the best way to help that.

This is a great site for researching the best light stuff around. Take advantage of it. If you are going on your own, dig in. If you want a guided trip, there are two companies that run trips there: Coastal Bliss Adventures and Sea to Sky Expeditions. They can save you time and hassle by helping you prepare and making sure you make it all the way through in the best way.

No matter how you go, please prepare well and be safe.

There is absolutely no requirement for a guided tour of the NCT.

If anyone is interested, head over to www.clubtread.com for trip reports.

Gary, you correctly linked to YOUR site in your post (and, please, our forum etiquette requests that you are completely transparent in your post about your affiliation with any company you 'suggest'), but somehow the link you undoubtedly included to the other site got messed up some how. So, being the nice guy I am, I thought I'd help you out.

Sea to Sky Expeditions

Glad to assist.
