How difficult is the West Coast Trail?
The west coast trail is 75+ km hiking while carrying everything you need difficult. It’s not for the the faint of heart. The trail has it’s moments where you question your sanity but never once did I feel as if I couldn’t go on. This was especially true once I was able to rest after a grueling section. The most difficult sections I found were the last 25 – 30 km (or just under half) as it contained the ladders, serious elevation changes and log crossings.
There are many points where you’ll need to scramble up a bed of roots.
