Enjoy the peace, fresh air and wildlife sightings while hiking on rocky shorelines or through woodland trails.
Gorgeous viewpoints overlooking Pender Harbour can be found via two trails, Mount Daniel
(1,375 feet/419 m) sits above Garden Bay and takes approximately 90 minutes to reach the top (5 miles/8 km return). Be sure to bring appropriate footwear and dress for the season. The Pender Hill Trail
(758 feet/231 m) rises sharply from the saltchuk (a Native term for water) above Irvine's Landing and will take approximately 30 minutes (2 miles/3 km return).
Another popular hiking trail near Pender Harbour is the Sunshine Coast Trail
, which stretches 180 km from the Saltery Bay ferry terminal in the south to Sarah Point in the world-famous Desolation Sound Marine Park in the north. There are many access points around Powell River with varying terrain, appealing to all ages and athletic abilities.
