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.

For those wanting to explore or travel through Gibsons by foot, we suggest a number of self-guided walks, including:


The Seawalk follows the coastline in Lower Gibsons from Armours Beach all the way to the Gibsons Public Market. This trail is a great way to get a sense of the community and the active coastline, populated with sea birds and seals.

White Tower Trail

You will find this trail adjacent to the curling rink and aquatic facilities. It offers easy access to flat, forested multi-use trails, boardwalks and pondscapes. The tranquil ponds alongside the trails are part of Gibsons’ “Natural Asset” inventory, as they play an active role in helping to manage the Town’s stormwater.
