Welcome to the official Sunshine Coast Trail website.

The Sunshine Coast Trail is a 180-kilometre trail that stretches from Sarah Point in Desolation Sound to Saltery Bay. In 1992 a small group of people founded the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (PRPAWS) and started building trails that linked the remaining stands of old growth forests of the region.

The Sunshine Coast Trail traverses a wide variety of landscapes, from coastal shorelines, along creeks and lakes, through old growth forests to panoramic mountaintops. It provides hikers with the opportunity to experience Powell River’s breathtaking backcountry with its rich fauna and flora.

Attracting visitors from around the world, this epic trail now boasts seven huts with two more planned this year, making it the only free hut-to-hut hiking experience in Canada. This is the best outdoor adventure vacation value in North America!

The Sunshine Coast Trail is Canada's longest hut to hut hiking trail - and Powell River's #1 tourist attraction. We are trying to find out how important treed buffers are to people who use the trail.
There are several areas along the trail where logging produces clear cuts. A treed buffer is the amount of space left between the trail and a cut block, on both sides.

Please take a minute or two to fill out this short survey, and feel free to share it with your friends. You can download the survey PDF here and give/mail it to us, or do it online, below:
