From leisurely shoreline strolls amid coastal breezes to heart-pounding hiking expeditions through lush rainforest, Sechelt is a hiker's paradise.
Soft adventure abounds on the Sunshine Coast, and it's easy to soak up nature as a hiker without being an Olympic-calibre athlete. Sightings of wildlife like deer, beaver, and raccoon are certainly possible.
Take a pleasant hike in Cliff Gilker Park, off Highway 101 to the south, halfway between Sechelt and Gibsons (just 23km/14mi apart). Wander through 5km/3mi of forest trails, crossing Roberts Creek and admiring numerous waterfalls. Cliff Gilker Park is adjacent to the Roberts Creek Golf Course.
