What to consider when you are considering the West Coast Trail.

First you should ask yourself if you like mud. And if you are willing be wet. If you are willing to stink of campfire walking into a fancy hotel. And if you want to sit and watch the ocean, and the fog roll in and the clouds break apart for a sunset, if you are willing slip off a slippery stump and fall into the mucky trail, love trail mix as you’ve never loved anything before and wave to whales as they poke above the scary high swell. If your answer is yes, then you should most definitely do the West Coast Trail.

Advice: Wear gaitors. Take your time. Definitely go to Owen Point.
