The town of Sechelt is nestled on a narrow isthmus of land with the Strait of Georgia on one side and Sechelt Inlet on the other. The name Sechelt actually means "land between two waters" and was named after the shishalh who are the original First Nations people of the region.
To access the area, travel northwest on Hwy. 101 (Sunshine Coast Highway) from Gibsons approximately 23 kms. I've included the Porpoise Bay, Sandy Hook, and Tuwanek areas into the Sechelt general area.
Many of the trails that follow along the powerline or connect to the
powerline access road have no names. These trails are generally
appropriate for both hikers and bikers. Other than the Heritage Trail
which is easy, I would rate these trails as intermediate. There is some
blow down and minor obstacles on some of the trails as well.
I will be adding a page for Kinnikinnick Park and trails in the near future.

I have created a paper map and two booklets:
Sunshine Coast Trail Map - a 17" X 22" water-resistant map of all the trails on the Sunshine Coast.
Sunshine Coast Trails - a compilation of all of the areas trail descriptions and maps.
Sunshine Coast Hikes and Bikes - some of my favourite routes.
