Trails around Tofino

I'm going to visit some friends in Tofino for the last week of April and want to spend a day or two on the bike while I'm there. Any trails around the area that I should check out? XC/AM trails are fine and bonus points if there's anything with scenic views of the ocean.
Thanks!

The plan is to spend a few days surfing but since I'll have my bike with me, might as well check out some samplings of the local singletrack variety as well.

Good tip on the bike path.

I don't know if there are any trails, but I kind of assume there isn't much.

Pacific Rim is a National park and I highly doubt there is mountain bike trails and your not allowed to bike on the hiking trails.

There is also a bike path in Ucluelet, but I don't think the Wild Pacific Trail is bike friendly.

Breakers is a hot spot for viewing fluff while having a cup of joe while in town.

If you're into sunsets, go down to the government wharf in Tofino to catch the best view.

2bit could offer up other ideas, but basically Port Alberni has the goods.

The Island has already reached it's quota of Mainlanders for the year, please try again next year.

But if they happen to let you on the ferry anyways, Hammerfest, Port Alberni, and Sproat Lake are all enroute. Otherwise, Cumberland is about 30min north of the Port Alberni turn off. Talk to the guys at Ozzie's in Port Alberni.
