Trail Overview

Just off Highway 14 (West Coast Road) along the coast of Vancouver Island are a number of logging roads. One of those roads is W40 which quickly leads to W50-A. W50-A is primarily dirt and gravel, with a few very deep and narrow ditches that cross the road and require high clearance to avoid scraping on the front or rear bumpers. The road has a few offshoots but ultimately dead-ends at the top. Though the view of the surrounding clear cut trees is not much to write home about, the view from the top where the road dead-ends provides a nice view of the Salish Sea and can make for a great place to overnight camp. There was a gate at the entrance, so it has the possibility of being closed and locked, and/or beware of it becoming locked after going in and camping.

Difficulty

The road was pretty easy going, aside from a number of ditches that must be crossed and would be difficult without some higher clearance
