Wildside (hiking trail)
The Ahousaht Wildside Heritage Trail is a hiking trail on Flores Island in Ahousaht Traditional Territories that connects the town of Ahousaht, the village of Maaqtusiis, to several beaches and wild forest and is 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) long one way ending in Cow Bay.
The trail began as a First Nations women's eco-tourism initiative to secure steady jobs and income for the people of Ahousaht and was created by manual labour in 1993. The trail office was re-opened in 2010 as a non-profit operation dedicated to job creation within the Ahousaht community, as well as ongoing stewardship by Ahousaht of lands used by their people for thousands of years.
