Regarding trail Juan de Fuca trail near Victoria, BC

Curious - does anyone know the elevation gain for the entire trail? It really seems like a lot.

Juan de Fuca is a 3 day hike -- and it's coastal, so I don't think (although I've never done it) that it would be extreme. I did do part of it once (closest end to Victoria) and it does descend from the parking lot, to beach level, and back up again, so yes, no doubt there is some gain and drop, but not severe.

Soon, we'll have elevation plots of GPS data submitted, so keep checking back. And perhaps someone else who's done it can respond. Your question went in the trail review area, and this forum, so it will get answered.

You're looking at around 50-100 meter elevation gain between the lowest and highest points really, unfortunately this gain and loss happens about 12 times back to back between Bear Beach and Chin Beach on the common "day 2" leg if starting from the south end.
