Hiking Trail; Views
HIGHLIGHTS: The trail begins with easy walking in second growth past fire scarred veterans, and ends in majestic old growth fir and cedars. The Maple Wetland trail loops through lush ferns in a boggy zone thought to be the headwaters of Davis Brook and within sight of tall maples. The viewpoint begins easily from the Wetland Loop then rises steeply up a rock lined draw toward a view of Sechelt through the tops of old growth fir, arbutus, and pine. A short spur trail from the Grove uphill between rocky bluffs to regard the 27 foot circumference Douglas Fir.
ACCESS: From the Sunshine Coast Highway 101, turn north at the main traffic light intersecting Wharf Avenue. Turn right at the four way stop at Wharf Avenue and Sechelt Inlet Road. Proceed 6.6 km to Sandy Hook Road. Park here and look for the Hidden Grove sign on the right hand side of the road. The trail begins here.
