The Town of Gibsons is committed to supporting the development of a comprehensive active transportation network that will enable residents and visitors to safely walk or bike to various locations within the Town.
In recent years, we have added a number of dedicated cycle/walking paths to our network, including:
- Helen’s Way is a low-gradient connector trail between Upper and Lower Gibsons that enables casual hikers and mountain bikers to enjoy nature, right in the heart of our town;
- The Gibsons Connector which provides safer, less steep, paved bike/walk routes between Upper and Lower Gibsons;
- The Reed Road Multi-Use path, which runs along Reed Road, between Payne Road and Park Road; and
- Marked bike lanes on the east side of Venture Way (across from the Blackfish Pub.) This will form part of the route that connects Venture Way and Payne Road.
Our active transportation network will continue to grow in 2022, thanks to a $675,000 grant which will be used to complete safe, continuous links between the tourism centres of Lower Gibsons and Upper Gibsons.

Virtually all of our active transportation projects include input from Transportation Choices – Sunshine Coast (TraC).
We also actively support Sustainable Sunshine Coast, a newly launched initiative spearheaded by Sunshine Coast Tourism, which is focused on encouraging alternative transportation and supporting tourism businesses and experiences that are better for the environment.
