We were delighted to find many walking trails in the Sechelt area.
The seawalk in Sechelt itself is very pretty.
Hidden Grove is very short, but pretty and also wheelchair accessible.
St. Francis Point Park is beautiful, but a tricky hike.
Refueled afterwards at Halfmoon Bay Café. Their signature Amaretti cookies are really great.
Porpoise Bay is another short trail but has a pretty salmon creek leading to the estuary.
Cliff Gilker Park has several lovely waterfalls.
Afterwards, we visited nearby Robert’s Creek and the Gumshoe Café.
Their homemade bars are big and yummy!
We loved the swamp and long boardwalks leading to Smuggler’s Cove.

We loved the huge, covered deck on our rented cabin. Perfect for listening to the soft rain pattering on the leaves all around while sipping Mulled Wine or the most decadent hot chocolate ever.
