Explore the most popular Bird Watching trails in Gowlland Tod Provincial Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Trails are fairly well marked, there are a few steep inclines you'll need to use hands to help get up/down. The views from the top are gorgeous.

Beautiful scenery. Fantastic hike that has excellent viewpoints. We started at the Caleb Pike entrance and we hike to Jocelyn, and back. Almost ten km. Once at Jocelyn viewpoint you can head to Mackenzie Bight. All around fun:)

Lovely hike, great views! Would suggest a good pair of hiking boots during winter hikes, some sections are pretty muddy! My pup and I will definitely be hiking this trail again :)

Great hike! Took us about 3 hours with lunch. Beautiful scenery! Challenging enough you’re not bored.

Pretty moderate. Went in December and was pretty muddy in places, would recommend hiking boots.

Trail Condition: Well maintained and easy to follow.
Aesthetic: Mostly surrounded by nature and a lovely area but there are a few little sections that aren't the prettiest.
Distance/Elevation: Short hike if you don't want to do a big hike to Jocelyn Hill, still has some elevation and steep hills though.
View Point/Summit: Rather nice view point at the peak.

really beautiful views

Trail Condition: Easy to follow for the most part. There are one or two places where you might get a bit confused or lost but if you keep to the main trail you are fine. Well maintained.
Aesthetic: Lovely trail and views all around.
Distance/Elevation: Longer distance, some steep sections but overall there are nice sections between hills.
View Point/Summit: Great view points and summit.

Good views and a nice loop.

Beautiful trail. Stunning arbutus. I found sections of the trail aren't really run-able: either too steep or loose gravel and steep or too rocky and steep. But the climbs keep you're heart working and the views are lovely. Saw clear to Mt Baker today.

A good blend of rolling smooth and mildly challenging rough terrain, perfect for a 60min run. Frequent, spectacular views, too.

Great views of Finlayson Arm. Easy to moderate hike through arbutus and mixed forest with ridge areas to take in the view. . Definitely would do again
