Please note these updates, provided by from the Maaqutusiis Hahoulthee Stewardship Society (MHSS) and the Ahousaht Hawiih (Hereditary Leadership):

Lone Cone Hostel and Campground + Lone Cone Trail:

This culturally sensitive location is closed until 2024 at the earliest, due to imminent ground-penetrating searches near the site of the former Kakawis Residential School.  Furthermore, docks are being replaced.

Hot Springs Cove / Maquinna Provincial Park:

Hot Springs Cove remains closed to visitation, as the Ahousaht Hereditary Leadership works toward a mutually beneficial agreement with BC Parks in regard to access and revenue, via a voluntary stewardship fee.

Walk the Wild Side Trail:

The Wild Side Trail on Flores Island is open to visitation.

Tofino Wilderness Resort:

The resort was acquired by MHSS, and is closed for summer 2022, as repairs/renovations are underway.

T’ashii Paddle School:

This business was acquired by MHSS and has been relocated to Quait Bay, by Tofino Wilderness Resort.  While tours are not open to the public for summer 2022, there is the possibility of hosting small corporate groups.

Additionally, we invite you to listen to this informative interview that aired July 21 on CBC Radio’s All Points West with Tyson Atleo, who is acting hereditary chief for his father, Shawn Atleo.

We will send updates through this industry news blog as they are received,  and are thankful to Anna Atleo at MHSS for this comprehensive update.  If you have questions about this information, please contact MHSS directly at
