  • A short walk from UVIC. Because the local people who like hiking up the well. I think it's a good place to see the sunset.

  • even on a cloudy day, get a great view of the surrounding area and water on three sides, not much else up here and would be a great place for a restaurant but parking at a premium though free.  more »
  • A short drive up Mt Tolmie give you a spectacular view of greater Victoria, well worth the effort driving up the mountain.  more »

  • A beautiful park for a walk, run, walking a dog, to bring children, or just to sit at the top and enjoy a 360 degree view of Victoria. There are multiple parking lots at the top of the hill. There are several different paths through the park. The spring is a wonderful time to observe local wildflowers. This is a fine example of a Gary Oak ecosystem. There is a flat water reservoir on top which is fun for children to rollerskate on. There are many benches throughout the park for sitting and contemplating.
  • Great view of Victoria and the sea (almost 180 view of the sea). Nice walking trails trough the mountain and quiet a bit of picnic tables. You can also park and stay in the car if too chilly outside. Oh! And you have access to internet with Shaw Open loll.
  • Nice place to walk hills away from traffic. Single road through. Wheelchair access just to parking lots. Too hilly otherwise. Great for a short workout on the bike - do some up and downs till you're cooked. Site of two water reservoirs, one with a top surface that makes for some good stargazing if you don't mind the city lights limit. Monument at top shows direction and distance to several features and places. Have seen some nice sunsets from here.
  • Amazing city views. Watch for the spring flowers on the west side of the reservoir.
  • Amazing views. Wonderful pathway system to explore. Conveniently located to the University. A great ‘secret’ spot in Victoria.
