North Coast Trail Hut to Hut Plan
A joint project of Legacy Tourism Group, RC Strategies & PERC, and 43K Wilderness Solutions.
The North Coast Trail is within the traditional territories of the Quatsino and the Tlatlasikwala First Nations. The project was 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 completed by the team confirmed the market potential of a Hut to Hut program and developed a detailed business plan to address hut design, placement, construction and management issues.
