Scenic Photos Around Powell River

Okay, just so we’re very clear, it is beautiful here! My husband, James, has been to 73 countries around the world and still counts Powell River as one of the most beautiful places he’s seen.

We have everything you could possibly want in the way of outdoor activities. There are the beaches big and small, some with long stretches of sand and some strewn with rocks. And then there’s the back country - hundreds of kilometres to explore in a vehicle, on horseback, and on your own two legs.

The photos to the left were taken by Shawn Hegan, an avid outdoorsman. The hut on the snow covered hillside was built by the Powell River Parks and Wilderness (PRPAWS) volunteers who can take well deserved credit for constructing and maintaining the Sunshine Coast Trail.
