Happy Trails

Ex­plore the coast with the most on the Sun­shine Coast Trail.

Vancouver Magazine - - Travel Summer Getaways -

Imag­ine the Paci c Crest Trail but with more coastal, knock-you- o -your-socks scenery and zero Wild fans throw­ing boots about. The whole 180-kilo­me­tre Sun­shine Coast Trail snakes from the Sal­tery Bay ferry ter­mi­nal up past Pow­ell River to end at Des­o­la­tion Sound’s Sarah Point, with free hut-to-hut camp­ing all the way. Man­zanita Blu o ers a gor­geous panoramic view and is an easy day-hike op­tion (about an hour each way from the Spire Ac­cess o Sarah Point Road); Tin Hat is harder, but the moun­tain vista goes 360 de­grees. Ei­ther way, a stop at Nancy’s Bak­ery for a base­ballmitt-sized white choco­late rasp­berry cin­na­mon bun is manda­tory.— J.D.
