Nature / Park Must See
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. Make Goldstream Provincial Park a centerpiece of your Langford vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Langford road trip planner.

  • We felt the staff very nice and helpful. But signs are lacking tremendously. Have we not asked and one-to-one only conditionally hilfreichen - received plan, then we return had disappointed again. The way led us to dead ends. Lt plan would be Rumdwege have been... To the railway bridge, there was unfortunately even no evidence. Good luck, we've followed the well-trodden paths. Partly but more than quaint, especially when wet. Sturdy footwear is always attached! But the rise had paid off. Who to trust, is also over the unsecured tracks to the other side of the mountain. A great view is guaranteed.

  • I loved walking around the Goldstream provincial park, but it was so difficult to get in. We were stopped at the gates trying to get into the park and told that it was closed due to "public safety". W...  more »
  • The spacious park is a recreation after the densely populated RV Park. Clean neat and generously designed with clean showers he offers plenty of space for relaxing night with tent or camper. Beautiful walks in the Park

  • Nice family picnic. Make sure you hike through the river bed which is dry and then go through the pipe under the highway. This leads to a nice waterfall which is great to relax near and of course take some great photos at.
  • So beautiful here and all the park staff are awesome. We didn't have a reservation and wanted to stay 2 full weeks over fully booked weekends and the staff were able to make it work for us with a couple camp site moves. It really allowed us to enjoy different aspects of the park!
  • It was good for some down time to go on trail. Very quite. Google maps lands you on side parking. We had to drive up 5km to make a you turn. Same side park with gravel I believe has drive to parking lot of the Park. Road that goes in is to private properties, I thought it was a all huge park.
  • Always a great place to visit. Tricky to get out of so watch traffic carefully. Also on the way in you might miss the first turn-off - there might be another coming up. For newbies the entrance is on your right as you start down the Malahat highway. If you reach Duncan you went too far ;)
  • The trestle is not for those who are afraid of heights. But it is worth it. Take your time crossing the railways ties and make your way across the trestle. It's a bit of a hike from the parking lot but worth the trip. Lots of fun. Great views of the valley so make sure you bring your camera! 📷 The falls and parks along the river and a great spot for a picnic or a hike. Highly recommended.
