interesting hike, gets pretty wet on the low end.

Great 360° views of Victoria

Very nice trail but with the gravel path in some places it’s not ideal for a stroller.

Good hiking trails for all levels.If you feel energetic just take a tougher trail.Less energetic then go for an easier one.Good range of trails.

Bikes have the right of way on this loop. The majority of this trail is in the mountain bike park.

Easy route. Flat family friendly trail. Dogs on leash. Horses on some trails. Noisy on highway side of lake. Used for 10km run events so nice wide flat run route. Can be muddy in rainy season

Very easy hike for any skill level. Quite populated but you can take lesser traveled ways up to the top. A nice little hike when you can't escape out of town but still have the hiking itch. Nice for a leisurely stroll with friends, Lots of good dog watching.

many different routes lead to the summit. great views and a easy ish hike

A good short hike with/for kids. Trail is made mostly with rock steps to the summit. You will hear a lot of car noise, but that is expected since its close by the highway.

There is a small parking lot at the trailhead. It's a short hike to the viewpoint at the top. There is another viewpoint at Little Mount Douglas overlooking the Blenkinsop valley. At the top it offers 360 degrees panoramic view from the summit. Well labeled trail system can be seem throughout the park (Green – Easy; Blue – Moderate; Black – Difficult).
