quick and dirty hike

great views

Easy 1.5 hour hike, view at about half an hour and then again 15 min later. A bit of steep rocky areas.

Great views after a relatively steep, well marked ascent. Mostly road and poorly marked and neglected trails after the power line. Strongly recommend considering another route for descent.

Great hike on a sunny, clear day. If it is a hot day and you have a dog with you bring water as no streams.

My favourite hike !

Nice climb.. fire road out

great views. fun hike!

Really enjoyable trail, fairly steep in places with lots of loose gravel/rocks but the views at the top are totally worth it, you can see all the way into Victoria from the summit. The trail was well marked and easy to follow as well.

Awesome trail, definitely a climb but the view from the trestle was worth it. The Niagara waterfall was beautiful and easy to access before heading up to the trestle as well. The trail itself was interesting and required attention but wasn’t too physically demanding.

Awesome. Quiet with wilderness right beside the city.

Great hike! Trestle is super cool. I didn't realize that you can see right through the Trestle between every wood beam - it's pretty high! Instead of hiking back right away we took the Gold Mine trail South and checked out the abandone mine shift. That spits you out at the highway. You an either cross the highway right there (a bit sketchy) or continue South and cross underneath with the stream. Then we continued North back to the parking lot. All in was about 6 km.

great view from the top.

A bit confusing to start - need to follow highway north to cross the water. After that its a great trail.

It is definitely very steep and there is a sign now that says no Public Access as CRD has a center at the top now. We still climbed it and it was gorgeous :)

This is a great hike if you're looking for something short with a beautiful payoff. After you go through the tunnel, you take an immediate right and it's up for about 1k to get to the Trestle. You get to enjoy a beautiful view of Mt. Finlayson from the trestle. This isn't a good hike to do with children as there is no railing on the trestle.

Quick but beautiful trail, great views! We went up in some stormy weather but it made for some great photos of the hills and lower island

Steep beautiful trail. Incredible panorama up top.

This was a good loop trail. it's a bit tricky to figure out where the trail is in places, but that was half the fun!

Well maintained trail with the opportunity to see wildlife.

Fun hike (not too hard) with a unique view at the top and a gorgeous waterfall to cool off in at the end!

A steep ascent but not overly long. Definitely worth the couple of hours to hike there and back. Bring a camera and binoculars lots to photo and look at.
