If you'd like to go on a longer day hike this is it! Amazing view points, not boring, and a great workout. Bring lots of water with you. Honestly the reason it is rated as moderate is the length of it; otherwise it is totally doable and standard hike. Highly recommended :)

Very nice hiking trail with multiple stunning view points. Few steep hills but if you like a challenging trail this one is a good one. Pike Rd to Jocelyn Hill Peak took us about 1hour and half.

This trail is one of our favs. The sound of the water making its way down to the inlet is soothing and the waterfall when it is in peak season is a special treat. Be prepared for short bursts of steep inclines. #mamalikey #workthatbutt

This review only applies to the "Rabbity Trail" shown on the Gowlland Todd Provincial Park topo by the All trails hiking app. This trail has been removed from the official park topo and, in my opinion, is no longer a safe hiking trail. The trail follows the Saanich Inlet along the north side of the park and on the south side of Saanich Inlet. Beware of this trail and I recommend All trails modify their topos to match the trails on the official park maps.

Beautiful views all along the trail. Some steeper sections here and there but relatively easy hike. Several ways to access so easy to parts of it from either end.

I did the McKenzie Trail after working all day. It was short but an awesome workout get back up from the water.

It was worth the effort, but was more taxing then I thought Loved the fact that it was very secluded
