Bain Creek Smenmántm Ḵ’í ḵp’ikw

Bain Creek one of seven sites maintained by the Sea Kayak Association of BC (SKABC) can be found on the Sea to Sky Marine Trail in Howe Sound. This past weekend – May long weekend 2023 – Ken, a BC Marine Trails director and Philip, a SKABC steward, cut lumber from down trees and made a bridge. Additionally, the two men built stairs and a kayak rack. Great volunteer work! You can visit the Sea to Sky Marine Trail page on the BC Marine Trails site to read more about this first class paddling trail. And don’t forget to visit our business partners on Bowen Island (Bowen Island Kayaking) or Halfmoon Sea Kayaking on the Sunshine Coast.

Considerable work and effort has been invested in the Sea to Sky Marine Trail recreation sites. All recreation sites have composting toilets and an increasing number of tent platforms, bridges, and other facilities like picnic tables. A very strong volunteer effort.
