In April 2007 our family had the pleasure of spending a week visiting the Sunshine Coast for the first time. Undaunted by the lack of hotel chain type of accomodations in this area we easily scored two great vacation rentals that were both affordable, comfortable and well outfitted. Here is my suggestion for a cost free, family-friendly activity near Roberts Creek (a neighborhood just south of Sechelt):
Cliff Gilker Park. A must-see for first time visitors to the Sunshine Coast. Just a very short walk from the parking lot will find you at the foot of a hiking trail that winds through lush forest of old growth cedars with lots of fallen trees that our teens scrambled over and under like mountain goats. Such an enjoyable, rejuvenating hike - not too long or difficult with the right balance of beautiful trees, streams, bridges and rocky ledges. Bring your camera and your dogs - they'll love it.
