LONE CONE WATER TAXI & HIKE

The views from the top of Lone Cone are nothing short of spectacular! This tour starts with a water taxi from the Tofino Harbour to Meares Island and takes 15 minutes. Once you are dropped off at the dock you walk to the start of the Lone Cone trail, see the sign that reads “Lone Cone” with an arrow. The rugged trial climbs more than 700 metres to the top lookout. Take a break on the top rock outcrops where all of Clayoquot Sound opens up to you. Eat your snack and take in the view.
