The North Coast Trail is within the traditional territories of the Quatsino and the Tlatlasikwala First Nations. The project is based on the premise that a Hut to Hut trail would expand the market for the trail users by extending the viability of hikes into the shoulder season and by expanding the potential target market to hikers seeking a modified wilderness experience. The work to be done by our team will confirm the market potential of a Hut to Hut program and develop a detailed business plan to address hut design, placement, construction and management issues. This is a joint project of RC Strategies & PERC, Legacy Tourism Group, and 43K Wilderness Solutions.
