Sunshine Coast Trail Route Options

ROUTE 1 - Saltery Bay to Rainy Day lake hut

 

Saltery Bay (SCT 178 km) > Rainy Day Lake Hut (SCT 169 km) - OVERNIGHT HIKE

 

This route allows hikers to explore a new trail on the return leg, instead of returning on the same section of the SCT. We recommend a counter-clockwise direction to get the more difficult and longer hike completed on the first day. Beautiful oceanside trail sections on the coastal route are sure to impress initially, with awesome views on the return leg.

 

  • Approx. 4 hour hike via Fairview Bay section (mostly inside of the Old Growth Management Area).
  • Approx. 3 hour hike via Blue Grouse Ridge section (Freil Falls Vista – view of 1450’ waterfall).

 

Moderate with Difficult sections from Fairview Bay to Rainy Day Lake Hut, as well as scenic Blue Grouse Ridge.

(Shuttle time is approx. 30 minutes on Pavement)
