1. First Nations engagement;
2. The development of safe trails (based on Marine Trail Safety Mandate); and
3. A sustainable approach to trail building and protecting our coastline (in support of the Marine Trail Code of Conduct and other sustainable practices and efforts).

A Trailblazer also understands the importance of future public access to public places. The BC Marine Trails endeavours to advocate for access to coastal campsites. launch sites, and day use sites along the BC coast.
