We did a one day trek from Malaspina Rd to Manzanita Hut. beautiful walk in the forest, some of it is being renewed, took us a little less than 2 hours each direction, and we are not from the fast ones. Easy to find the start of the trail, not a lot of parking options on the gravel road near the start.

To go to Sunshine Coast BC you need to take ferry, the ride about 45 minutes. Arrive at sunshine coast you can enjoy the ocean and if you lucky enough you can see a seagull

Did a 3 day, 2 night from March Lake, Elk Lake Hut, Walt Hill Hut out on Dixon Road. Trail closure due to logging not well marked, but rest of the trail is. Huts are wonderful. Met several other groups so busy already in June. Swimming excellent at Elk Lake and Coyote Lake. Variety of trails from old and new logging roads (not to much new unless you count the detour which may not be for long) single track trails, rock bluffs, sub alpine, old growth, new growth and everything in between. A lot of scenery. Trail is excellent condition and varies in difficulty. Not too many blowdowns or obsticles on the trail. All huts and trails mostly built by volunteers.

We started in Lund and hiked up to Manzanita Bluffs where there is a delightful little shelter/cabin/picnic area. This is not for the faint hearted as it is an uphill climb the whole way...but worth it for the spectacular views across the Salish Sea taking in The northern Gulf Islands and the Comox Glacier on Vancouver Island.

This was our first backcountry camping adventure! Our original plan was to hike from Sarah Point to Powell River. We did not have much time, and after realizing that day 1 we would not be able to take the water taxi from Lund to Sarah Point until 230pm (one of their boats was not working?), we decided to just leave from Powell River. We parked in the Shingle Mill parking lot ($5/day) and after a bit of searching, finally found the entry point of the trail. The only official Sunshine Coast Trail sign was when you entered the pub parking lot, so we had to wander around looking for the little orange markers you come to appreciate throughout the rest of the trail. Over the next two days, we saw about 10 people at different times, heading North to South as opposed to our South to North endeavour. The scenery was amazing of course, the camping areas were super cute and despite the difficulties of carrying our bags, we had an awesome time! There were a couple of times where we thought we might run out of water before getting to an adequate stream, but it turned out alright. Between the two of us, we were carrying about 3.5 litres. We didn't quite make it to Sarah Point, due to our time crunch we ended up walking to Lund when we came to the highway on day 2 and took a bus from there to Powell River. Loved the 30km we saw of this trail and would love to do more! Try it!
