Goldstream Provincial Park, Langford

(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Explore the diverse scenery of Goldstream Provincial Park, with plenty of hiking trails leading all the way to the top of Mt. Finlayson. Admire the towering Douglas firs and western red cedars (some up to 600 years old), and check out the abandoned gold mine--testament to the 19th-century gold rush here. If visiting in fall, you have the chance to witness an annual spectacle of salmon pushing through the stream, and a huge gathering of bald eagles feasting on the leftovers. Stop by the visitor's center for travel information, a gift shop, and viewing platform, plus some snacks and beverages. Plan your Goldstream Provincial Park visit and explore what else you can see and do in Langford using our Langford family vacation planner.

  • We loved the nice, easy hiking trails, the beautiful waterfalls and the interesting visitor's center. 
  • We hiked up the Mt Finlayson trail on a cold November day. I had heard that it was steep but in reality half way up it turns into a scramble to the top. Climbing through tree roots, then up a rocky st...  more »

  • Lovely time of year (fall) to check out the samon run and all the lovely colors! great hikes! great views! campfires and public bathrooms!
  • Wow..Get ready to have your Mind Blown by this park. It's so large and so clean. The staff is outstanding. They even deliver fire wood to your campsite, so you dont' need to buy it when you enter the park. There are large playgrounds for the kids and even a little bike skills course. The showers are outstanding and the campsites are all flat. There are running and hiking trails right from the camp site also. A great place to call home for a few nights or one. We'll be back.
  • Nature man! Running water, gentle trails and the smell of trees. Great for little kids. The walk to the nature house is achievable with a 1.5 year old, though you may have to carry them part of the way back....
  • Really great park to go to!! There's lots to see here. You can watch the salmon in the fall. There's also a nice waterfall and a graffiti tunnel you can hike through. There's a nice hike up to the Goldsteam Trestle, an abandoned railway bridge which I highly recommend going to, there are no rails so it is really thrilling and a nice picture spot.
  • This park was pretty, but I found the layout kind of frustrating. It's split in half by the highway, and there don't seem to be good trails connecting the one side to the other. The trails were not very well signed, so I ended up wandering around looking for various viewpoints without much success. The parts of the park that I saw do seem quite beautiful overall, but I think some work could be done to improve the visitor experience.
