The Sunshine coast trail  was conceived in 1992 when a handful of outdoor enthusiasts realized that there was a vanishing amount of accessible old growth left on the Upper Sunshine Coast. They formed the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society PR PAWS, a registered non-profit charitable society to set aside protected areas linked by corridors, as well as beginning work on the 180 km trail connecting the old growth from Saltery Bay to Sarah Point.  it is Canada's longest hut-to-hut hiking trail.
