Itinerary Details

Itinerary

This is the best short hike (not difficult!) in the Greater Victoria Area. We cover about 4.2 miles over the course of 4 hours so the pace is leisurely. We ascend among Douglas Fir and Arbutus Trees to many majestic Fjord Views (that's ocean carved out by glacier), with the stunning backdrop of the Gowlland Range and the Olympic Mountains of Washington State. You will also see incredible views towards the Gulf Islands, the mountains close to North Vancouver and Whistler, and a vista to an active volcano, Mount Baker. Remember to Breathe!
