In keeping with the idea that life is a journey of personal discovery we offer here some brief trail description of favourite walking routes on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. Most of the walks are between one and two hours. Often the walks are a mixture of quiet country roads, beaches and short trail segments strung together as an easy to moderate loop which takes in some water or natural feature. The ideal walk often includes a quiet place near water where you can sit and be grateful and present with nature. Each trail description includes an accurate measure of distance determined by a GPS, time, a rating of the level of difficulty, a map, and a detailed trail description. This trail guide is offered free of charge as a service to the public. Please be careful and walk with respect. Although these are not technical routes even easy walks present some hazards and you need to be prepared, wear adequate clothing and footwear, carry a map and compass and emergency supplies. Please respect the environment and others property. Routes described here may undergo many physical and legal changes before a trail is revisited and revised. The trail descriptions offered here are general descriptions of a trail at one point in time and and cannot be relied on in place of your own good judgement and common sense.
