- Seawall walks at both Davis Bay and Sechelt, which are wheelchair accessible and offer gorgeous sunsets.
- A self-guided walking tour of the Sechelt Nation Totem poles.
There are also many hikes elsewhere on the Sunshine Coast that are bound to satisfy every level of hiking ability. Some of the very popular ones are listed below:
- Easy forest walks at Smuggler's Cove in Halfmoon Bay (shown in photo), and Cliff Gilker Park in Roberts Creek.
- Steep hikes at Soames Hill in Gibsons, and Mt. Daniel in Pender Harbour reward the hiker with expansive views of the coastline.
- An easy hike that tourists enjoy, is the 4 km flat trail to Skookumchuck Narrows to view the famous Sechelt Rapids. The trail is up near Egmont, about an hour's drive north of Sechelt. The best viewing times depend on the tides. Check out our Skookumchuck Narrows page for more information.
