Multi-Use Path (MUP)

Tofino's Multi-Use Path winds its way along Highway 4 for approximately six kilometres.  It has been a work in progress for the community of Tofino, with many volunteer hours put towards fundraising for its construction.  The MUP has been over twenty years in the making, and all of the work has paid off, as the trail has become the most used recreation facility in Tofino. The path is not done yet; the goal is to eventually connect the MUP all the way to the National Park. The path is designed for a variety of users including cyclists, walkers, joggers and skate boarders. With a growing increase of users on the path every year, we hope that everyone can follow these tips to keep the MUP safe!

Tips for the MUP:

  • No Motorized Scooters
  • Stay Right except to pass
  • Use your bell
  • Keep dogs on a leash
  • Use a light a night
  • Watch for hidden driveways
