Originally named after the logging company present in the area in the early 1900's. If you look hard you'll see the evidence of the fore and aft roads built entirely with logs. The ultimate log ride!
This is one of the best trails in West Sechelt. It can be ridden in both directions, but is easier from north to south. Most of the features on this trail have ride-arounds. Parbac has lots of roots and rocks, yet still flows well and is fun to ride. Slippery when wet, the trail is best on a hot summer day.
