Documentary - Owen's Point
A hiker pauses at Owen's Point on the West Coast Trail. Originally called the Dominion Lifesaving Trail, it is a 75 km backpacking trail following the southwestern edge of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It was built in 1907 to facilitate the rescue of shipwrecked survivors along the coast, part of the treacherous Graveyard of the Pacific. It is now part of the Pacific Rim National Park and is often rated by hiking guides as one of the world's top hiking trails.
