My last day off was a beautiful and sunny day which doesn't always happen here on the West Coast. So Dave and I decided to take full advantage of the clear skies and hiked up Mt. Ozzard. The overall hike wasn't that difficult as it follows a gravel road all the way up. However, saying that it was a steep climb for just over 5 1/2 kms. I think it took us roughly 1.5 hours to get to the top with some water and view breaks along the way. The way down we realized just how steep it was after watching someone taking a bit of a tumble down. You definitely have to watch your footing on the gravel road but we got down in just under an hour. It was a great hike to do on a clear day because you were able to see views from all sides of the top. We were able to see the Broken Group Islands, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park all the way to Tofino. A definite must try hike if you find yourself visiting Ucluelet or Tofino, especially on a nice day. However, keep in mind that in the summer time there are berries along the road and you may come in contact with a bear so it's always important to be aware of your surroundings in the wilderness.
