Hiking the Pesuta Shipwreck Trail in Haida Gwaii


The title says it all but the video is of of our hike to visit the Pesuta Shipwreck Trail in Haida Gwaii, British Columbia. The ship was wrecked in a large winter storm in 1928 and it’s a 10km loop. I recommend you stay to the high ground as the low grown can get wet as you’re about to discover. I’s not a hard hike and it’s a good time, once again we lucked out and had perfect weather.

This is my last “full day” on this trip, nuts eh!?

I’m here with the Explore BC Project, to learn more visit the Tourism BC Facebook Page and look up #ExploreBC on Twitter.

Tips hat,

    Good to hear you young uns’ huffing and puffing a little. Beautiful area! But in Sweden they restore their shipwrecks from the 1600’s and make a museum around it. (The Vasa Museum in Stockholm) I hope to get to British Columbia in the future, but I don’t know if it would be a good idea to take the hiking trail you did. I might get stuck and never get back. LOL

      Wear the appropriate footwear and you’ll be fine, I think?! ;] BC is unlike any other province in Canada, definitely worth a visit.

    Hahahaha I still think tucking socks into pants is rather ridiculous. But a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do eh? Great video!

      Thanks and nothing major, just lots of green everywhere.

    When in doubt (or when you’re about to blunder even further down a soggy trail), bushwhack! Love the cross-country expedition. That shipwreck is really cool. Makes me nearly want to head to Namibia and see the Skeleton Coast.

      It was good times and although I’d never heard of it, I’m kinda keen to go to Namibia now, was going to when I was in South Africa but there was land that HAD TO BE BOUGHT on Little Corn.

    That did look like a challenging trail! Good video… you certainly seemed to have lots of energy and enthusiasm! Very cool… and what’s this about a resort on Little Corn?

      Would have been good times, we had a good crew but always room for more!
