Qualicum Beach City Loop 

Qualicum Beach, BC


Drive to the center of Qualicum Beach and park near the railroad tracks just opposite the Fire Hall.  The GPS coordinates are:

  • 49° 20' 53.42" N
  • 124° 26' 32.47" W

There is almost always parking spots available there but if the market is open, sometimes you have to drive along the road until you find one.


The trail is primarily a combination of roads and paved bike paths, but there is a section of about a kilometer through the woods that is hard packed dirt and wood chips (a little more effort, but any bicycle is OK).

The Trip

We like this trail because it passes through most of the types of neighbourhoods that make up Qualicum Beach, from the homes of the rich and famous to those that struggle for a living.  There are parklands and trails through the trees and a couple of busy streets as well.
