As part of its activities, the Commission also develops and maintains a network of trails on public rights of way, including improved trails to popular shore accesses.

The Commission consists of eight local volunteer Commissioners, appointed by the CRD, and the CRD Director for the Southern Gulf Islands. Commissioners serve two-year terms, beginning in January of the first year.
