Goldstream Provincial Park, Langford

#1 of 12 in Things to do in Langford
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.

  • Very well run Provincial Park. We stayed 2 days with a caravan, everything was clean and well kept and the sites were generous. There are great short and long hiking trails, a playground, we very well liked. Only drawback in the nature of things: the trees of the forest are long and thick, so that within the park itself with beautiful summer weather on the ground barely a ray of sunshine comes down to. That should be considered for a longer stay.

  • Goldstream Provincial Park is a small park, however it has a really unique attraction in the Railway Trestle. It is reached by a short, steep hike up to the top but it is well worth a visit. The Natur...  more »
  • But if you have fear of height, don’t walk on the bridge. Pretty scary. Some websites say it is very dangerous. Maybe. Just be very careful. We had fun there and will recommend you to pay a visit. **w...  more »
  • Goldstream Park has lots to offer throughout the year. There is a great choice of hiking and walking trails...many of them along the river are wide, level and wheel chair accessible and there aremore aggressive climbs up the mountain sides including the amazing hike up to Goldstream Trestle The scenery is amazing, large trees, rivers, waterfalls and surrounded by mountains. Don't forget to check out the Nature Centre and in the fall the salmon run is definitely worth checking out and easily accessible for everyone.
  • Went here last week to see the salmon. They're late this year but now the stream is full of salmon. Very well maintained trail, great place for the family. Make sure you stop at the nature house to learn more about the ecosystem here. Please be respectful of the salmon. Lots of parking but fills up on the weekends, best to come during the week. Great place for the family.
  • This place epitomizes the beauty of BC. Mountains and forests of unparalleled awesomeness. Trails to hike leading to scenic views. Plenty of parking amongst the giant trees. If you visit during the right time the river is filled with salmon. A must see! Grab your family and visit this park today! Weekends are busy (with good reason)
  • I love this place. Big trees. Fresh air. I've been coming to Goldstream Park, especially during November, when the salmon are spawning! I held a Salmon BBQ for my family and co-workers on November 12th. It was sunny in the morning then, suddenly it rained like wickedly before, during and after my shindig😆😆😆 But, since I claimed these tables before everyone showed up, people stayed dry while eating, cause I do my best for those I care for.
  • Great place to appreciate nature views and have a walk. You can also go to see the salmon run depending on the time of year. Couple great hiking trails too!
