HIGHLIGHTS: Local woodcarver, Terry Chapman has carved 17 gnome faces into stumps and trees along the trail – can you find them all? The Chapman Creek itself is the largest drainage access on the Sunshine Coast allowing for spectacular seasonal water flow.

ACCESS: The trailhead is the parking lot of Brookman Park, on Highway 101 immediately east of the Davis Bay beach.

TERRAIN: The trail is mainly flat with minor steep sections, however, the banks have been slightly eroded.

Due to a strong wind storm in the winter of 2006 many large trees have fallen on the trail blocking the way.

And many of the gnome faces have been vandilised
Comment Overall its a good trail with many old trails branching off leading to hilltops. I wouldint recommend driving hours to get here but if you live near davis bay or sehelt give it a try.
