Cooking Seafood on the West Coast Trail

Cooking Seafood on the West Coast Trail

While the scenery is one of the major draws of the West Coast Trail, one of the landmarks that everyone makes sure to take in is the burger stand called Chez Monique’s. But while the burgers are definitely good, there is something better just up the trail, assuming you’re hiking South to North. At the Nitnat narrows ferry crossing, which is at kilometer 32 of the West Coast Trail, you can find fresh seafood on offering, along with a few side dishes and beer.

KIND Bars Review

KIND Bars Review

Never fear, KIND is here! Kind snacks has a philosophy: if you can’t pronounce it, you shouldn’t have to eat it. They use all natural, whole ingredients and work hard to create a natural bar that does the trick on trails! KIND fruit and nut bars are my latest essential addition to my daypack for this reason and more.

Gluten Free Backpacking Food on a Budget

Gluten Free Backpacking Food on a Budget

After a little planning I worked out a menu for the trip that cost $48.60 – one third of the cost of a freeze dried menu and that only weighed 160 ounces or 12 pounds – including the bear canister. I ate 13 meals that averaged 2300 calories, 250g carbs, 100g fat, and 100g of protein per day! At the end of the trip I still had some food leftover – even after off-loading a bunch with a thru hiker and trading some for toilet paper with another group of hikers!
