Nice hike for small walk. After reaching the summit, you can go back to the Whitaker loop by the small trail on the north slope, less busy ;)

this is a good trail if you just want to get a small hike in after work or for some daily exercise. You can drive up, or walk up the road side, OR hike up the path. Easy trail.

A cool forest retreat right in the city. The lookout has a map of the Surrounding mountains. If you look closely enough you can spot a Replica of a Spinks off in the distance.

Did this trail on a sunny day in November and really enjoyed it. There were beautiful views from the peak after a rocky climb and the trails through the quiet majestic forest are in beautiful shape.

This trail is a great mix of easy and intermediate walk/hiking. Amazing view points. Get to hit up the summit and the beach. Wouldn’t really recommend for little kids but with guidance they could definitely achieve it!! Great easy work out and a peaceful place.

Great trail! Beautiful views of Victoria and the waters beyond. A few steep descents and climbs but manageable and a nice challenge. Highly recommend!

Great hike. Amazing views. Stick to the marked trails. The goat trails are a bit of a workout and not for the fair of heart.

Excellent trail. The side trails are a bit rough. Stick to the marked trails. (Or you’ll end up divorced said my wife.)

A good trail for getting out into the woods while in Victoria. This route takes you around the base and over the peak. Busiest by the peak and the gate, but can be quiet on the east side of the mountain.
