The “User-Friendly” Trail Guide is a helpful resource for those looking for easy-to-use walking, hiking, and wheeling trails on the South Coast. The guide was created to inspire those with mobility challenges to get out and explore the Sunshine Coast. Trails were selected because they are shorter, wider, flatter, and more even than the average mountain trail.
