Owner description: Experience 180 kilometers of hiking adventure on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. The Sunshine Coast Trail offers the longest hut to hut hiking experience in Canada!
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We stopped in the Tourist Information Centre to find out more information about the Sunshine Coast Trail. The staff were friendly and helpful, but weren't familiar with the trail. We did find out about the historic walking tour of Powell River which we did and enjoyed :). The tourist info centre is 'off the beaten track'... it would be better to relocate to Marine Drive.

Nice open layout with lots of brochures and merchandise. Cheerful, helpful staff offering maps and advise. Their "specials" board outside the door displays last minute travel deals. Great idea!

Powell River is a small town on the west coast of British Columbia. I have stayed quite a few times and have always enjoyed myself. Lovely views,good walking wether a stroll along the coastal paths or hikes into woods. Lakeside camp sites, fishing,sailing,kayaking a good family spot!

The TPRVC described the hikes and provided maps of the areas where we can begin our hikes. However we discovered later on that the hiking areas were not fully developed and lacked signage to indicate where the hiking trail began and we got lost driving around look for it (e.g. Toquenatch trail -- that is part of the Sunshine Coast Trail) We saw a lot of yellow forestry marker signs but we could not see where we should park and begin the hike to Toquenatch even though we planned ahead and gathered advance info from the SCT website [http://www.sunshinecoast-trail.com/dayhikes.html] and the Visitors Centre. We had another confusing experience when we drove around for 1 hour on dusty (single car-width lane) roads looking for access to Duck Lake; we eventually crossed over to Inland Lake and was relieved to get out of the dusty and rock dirt roads that connected the two areas.
