  • Mount Doug, as the locals call it, is a great place to go on a sunny day to get a nice view of Victoria and the Saanich area. If you’re in good shape, you can park at the bottom and hike up a challeng...  more »
  • Gorgeous walk or drive to an amazing vantage point so close to downtown. Nice to see so many people out exercising.  more »

  • Great neighborhood park that I always enjoy exploring. Lots of trails to discover and very difficult to get lost. The ocean views are fantastic and the stairs down to the beach are well maintained with a metal railing for easy access. Walk up the hill is a little steep but that's to be expected. Always lots of parking spaces available in the lot too. Definitely worth stopping, great place to brings your dogs or kids!
  • This has always been an amazing Park and Beach. It is not usually as busy as other places around town because it is a bit out of the way. Not so much a tourist place as it is a local place. There are many well-maintained trails but some people might want to be be careful as they are frequently used by joggers who have their dogs off leash. Both the mountain top and the beach in this park offer spectacular views.
  • One of the great spots to overlook Greater Victoria area. I came here today as there was a small blanket of snow covering the city and wanted a better view. Typically you can drive up the mountain and they have a few parking spots, but today they locked the gate at the base of the mountain and you had to walk up. In a decent pace without stopping will take roughly 15minutes to the plateau and another 5 to the summit.
  • Quick hike for a breathtaking panoramic view. Equally as pleasant drive. Would recommend to anyone and everyone who even vaguely enjoys nature.
  • Its very pretty, the views from the top are truly amazing. There are many trails from easy to medium, short to medium long. Parking is available at the bottom and top totalling about 45 spots, there is an overflow at the bottom not far away, offering a bunch more. Bathroom, 1 outhouse at the bottom. Good for dogs on leash. Good for family hikes.
