Distance and Duration:

35km or 4-6 days.

You can also be dropped at Bajo Point to shorten the hike.

Note: Mowachaht/Muchalaht Trail Fees

There is a $45 fee per person (cash only), payable to the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation Band which allows access to cross their reserve site on Nootka Island and access to their facilities at Friendly Cove. This fee is to be paid in Yuquot/Friendly Cove at the end of your hike.


Air Nootka offers a convenient and reliable service that provides easy access to the trailhead.  

We will fly you over the length of the Nootka Island Trail, so you can see the marvels that ​await you on your hike. You'll be dropped off at Louie Lagoon which is the start of the trail. The trapped waters of Louie Lagoon yield an excellent protected landing area, only accessible by floatplane. A 45 minute hike along a flagged path through the rainforest brings hikers to the rolling surf of the Pacific Ocean at Third Beach.
