Trails are plentiful and varied throughout the Sunshine Coast.
The region boasts approximately 844 identified trails covering over 1570 kilometers. These trails range from wide, accessible paths through established provincial park to narrow single track winding through active, working forests. No matter what type of trail you’re looking for, chances are you’ll find it here on the Sunshine Coast. Whether you’re interested in hiking, biking, winter recreation, horseback riding, or riding an ATV, there is a wealth of information to help direct you to the right trail.
Trail users are asked to use one mindset: be respectful. This means packing your garbage out, and being mindful of wildlife, sensitive ecosystems, aboriginal history, and other types of trail users. Many of the trails enjoyed today by our community and visitors were built by locals, and are often still used in traditional aboriginal practices like collecting cedar strips for baskets. This legacy is to be honoured – and you’re invited to share in that simply by leaving only footsteps, and taking only pictures.
Wondering about wildlife? Our trails are home to creatures big and small. Soaring eagles, bears, beavers, black-tail deer, and birds of all types are a few of the regulars here on the Sunshine Coast. Wildlife in BC is a valuable resource from information on various species, viewing, safe practices, fishing, and hunting.
