Quotes from thousands of reviews:

“What unbelievable vision Oyster Jim Martin has had with the inception of this trail, and how well thought out it is. Various accesses, excellent signage, degrees of difficulty well indicated - and views, oh my gosh, the views. A million photos could not do justice to the force and might and grandeur of the Pacific Ocean and this shoreline, it's something that must be experienced".

BC achievement award announced

Oyster Jim said, “The Wild Pacific Trail Society’s board of directors have been just great! The longest serving of those and the person who best represents the trail is president, Barbara Schramm, who deserves special recognition.”
