About Us

For over 20 years, private landowners have made their land available for the Queen Charlotte Track. The Queen Charlotte Track Land Cooperative (QCTLC) was formed in 2010 to help ensure the sustainability of the 70 kilometer track. 

Today, 10 private landowners make their land available for your hiking and biking enjoyment for a small fee. Proceeds help with maintenance, improvements, and access.
