Porpoise Bay Provincial Park is located north of Sechelt along the southeastern shores of the Sechelt Inlet. The park has a popular campsite and is a great place for families to explore the beaches along the inlet.
The trails in the park are quite short, passing through a beautiful forest area along Angus Creek and crossing over a bridge, heading out onto an estuary with scenic views of Sechelt Inlet. These trails offer a great walk for people of all ages.
From the grass field near the playground, follow the gravel trail into the forest and, within minutes, you arrive at a bridge that crosses Angus Creek. Cross the bridge and continue following the trail as it makes its way out of the forest and onto an open estuary. Continue to the end of the trail, admiring the incredible views of the inlet while watching the many birds that frequent the area.
Once you?ve enjoyed the view, head back along the same trail, following it back into the forest and back across the bridge. This time, go left and follow the trail along Angus Creek for a bit as it passes through a lush rainforest of moss and Douglas Fir trees. At the first junction, go right and follow the trail as it arrives at a parking lot area. Cross the parking lot and continue on a short connector trail that arrives at an open grass field next to the covered picnic area. Crossing this field returns you to the playground area where you began.
You can also continue following the trail along Angus Creek as it will continue to a point near the park entrance.
