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.

  • Goldstream park is a great park so close to Victoria. The mountain hike up Mt. Finlayson has amazing views. The picnic area is well Kept, clean and has a great shelter with wood stove for rainy days. It's nice to have a public bathroom right there as well. The park has waterfall hikes with one big one called Little Niagara that is a very easy hike to. Also the trestle hike is a really fun adventure to get to as well. It is famous for its Salmon run and nature house that is full of information, and great for kids. Family friendly park.
  • If you like the sound of a highway at all times, try prospector's loop trail. Bonus: at the farthest part of the loop you can walk on the narrow shoulder of the highway to cross a bridge (or swim across the icy creek; it's up to you). The western half of the loop is on the roadway.
  • Great place. Many trails from short and easy to long and difficult. Wonderful forest and the Goldstream River and falls. Trail signage throughout
  • 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.
