The incredible Sunshine Coast Trail (SCT) originated in 1992 when a handful of outdoor enthusiasts realized the region's quickly-vanishing old growth. The full trail measures roughly 180km and acts as a protected wilderness corridor linking Desolation Sound with Saltery Bay, through the temperate rain forest of the Upper Sunshine Coast. 13 basic shelters (huts) are scattered along the trail - each available on a first-come/first-served basis, accommodating up to a dozen hikers. This 7-day self-guided Sunshine Coast 'sampler' takes in two of the trail-builders' favourite sections, the bookends of the trail, which offer incredible hiking, outstanding views, and some of our favourite huts/campsites. Great Canadian Trails takes care of all of your backpacking needs with trailhead transfers included, gear and camp/trail meals fully-supplied, daily food drops, and the use of our exclusive storage containers and emergency GPS transponders. We even arrange mid-hike accommodation in the town of Powell River, so you can refresh partway through and enjoy the local scene before heading back into the remote wilderness. Simply bring your backpack, your spirit of adventure, and let us do the rest!
