Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is located on the Sunshine Coast and is a popular scenic beach area to visit. The trail is very short and is primarily used to access the beach area along the bay.
The trail begins at the end of the parking lot next to a wooden map board of the area. Follow the wide, gravel trail as it parallels the beach area, offering views looking out into the bay. As you walk, there is a marsh to the left of the trail and can offer a good vantage for bird watchers.
The trail ends at a bridge with a small set of fish ladders, which are used by returning salmon, making their way from the salt water up Colvin Creek. Note that the large rock at the end of the trail is private property and no trespassing is allowed.
For those looking for a much longer hike, the northern section of Sergeant Bay Provincial Park goes all the way to Triangle Lake. There is a trail from the parking lot at Sergeant Bay that follows the driveway up to Redrooffs Road before crossing the road and continuing for about 3.4km to Triangle Lake.
