Start your day with a BC Ferries ride from Saltery Bay to Earls Cove (50min crossing time). The fjords that you’ll sail through this morning have some of the deepest waters anywhere; in fact, deep-water subs are sometimes tested here, to depths of approximately 2000ft.

Today’s ride will start on arrival at the BC Ferries’ Earls Cove Terminal, where you’ll walk off the ferry and onto your bike, then travel along purpose-built singletrack and end in the beautiful seaside Village of Sechelt.

As noted in even the oldest comments, erosion due to poor drainage,original trail design and the fact the trail is in a clearcut where soil is not replenished causes loose rocky conditions on this multiuse trail.

It does provide good access to other trails where the forest canopy provides a good riding surface.

Also the views are great.

Shaded rolling single track with some rocks and roots thrown in. Very well designed. Only complaint is it's over too soon.

Lots of trees down, trail is falling into disrepair, the bridge is passable but starting to fall apart. And it’s a connector trail between logging roads and hydro roads.
