Sunshine Coast Trail shelters & huts

Over the last year and a half the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (PR PAWS) has built four large shelters and a hut in strategic locations along the Sunshine Coast Trail (SCT). Our plans call for two more shelters and another hut to be built this year and next. Together with some B&Bs they will provide shelter/accommodation every 10 to 20 km so hikers don't have to carry a tent.

Sunshine Coast Trail - Millenium Park Update

After ten years working toward acquiring the lands known as Millennium Park (Willingdon Beach Trail below Highway 101 and south of the Haul Road, as well as McFall Creek Corridor west of the Complex to the Pole Line), City Council has passed a motion at its November 19th Council Meeting enabling this acquisition from PRSC.

Sunshine Coast Trail shelter, plus Shuffle and Trudge

As president of the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (PRPAWS) I'm happy to be able to report that we are nearing completion of the first of 8 shelters we are building at regular intervals along the 180-km-long Sunshine Coast Trail (SCT) at Fairview Bay. We will need a few more work parties to put the finishing touches to it, but the roof is up and the loft will sleep at least a dozen people right now. Use is free.
