Formed in the mid-1990’s by Bob and Sharon Sunquist, the local chapter of the Back Country Horsemen Club has become a driving force in developing and maintaining trails and bridges in the backcountry of Powell River.
Founded in 1995, the Access Society represents everyone who supports public access and conservation of the cliffs and mountains of BC. They encourage anyone who supports their goals, particularly climbers and mountaineers, to become involved and support their work.
The Powell River Cycling Association was created in 2009 by a group of like-minded cyclists who wanted to create a means to represent the interests, needs, and wants of all those riding bikes in Powell River.
With over 500 members, “The Sunshine Coast Trail (SCT) was conceived in 1992 when a handful of outdoor enthusiasts realized the amount of accessible old growth on the Upper Sunshine Coast was vanishing. They formed the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (now known as PAWS), a registered non-profit charitable society, to set aside protected areas linked by forested trail corridors.”
Meetings: 1st Monday 7:30 pm at Clubhouse Paradise Exhibition Park.
Founded In 1965, the Club's facilities include a 300’ by 150’ ring, announcer’s booth, jump storage shed and a driving track. The clubhouse, an old mill bunker, has a full service kitchen, washrooms and meeting area. With 60 to 70 members the Club provides a place for people to connect with other horse people and provide a huge asset to the riding community.
Walks are usually within the network of trails off the end of Nassichuck Road, however, walkers are contacted by email as to where the meeting point will be. The leader usually says a brief prayer for safety before the walk.
