I did a 7.7 km customized loop. I definitely had to use this apps built in compass several times because its deep into the forest in multiple places but wow... it’s so beautiful. Signage would be helpful at different junctures but I can say now that I know how to use a gps compass! So much beauty here. Definitely a favorite.

Nature tripsGreat!Off trailOver grown

Was a very green, luscious path. It’s a big park so there are a lot of smaller trails that can get a little confusing where to go but just follow your heart. There was a castle called Hatley Castle that was off the trail that is very much worth seeing.

Quite a beautiful place to be. Nice easy walk with a bit of heaven for everyone. Big treed forest area, gravel paths and of course Charlies’s Trail is the highlight.

I would rate this trail as easy, not moderate. Parts of this trail are on open gravel roads, an easy level hike.

Stunning area with the main trail and bunch lil hidden once! You can easily stay here all day enjoying the view, huge cedars and calm lagoon. Amazing rose garden, lots of peacocks to watch

Dogs allowed on leash. Very beautiful. Suggested trail takes you closest to Metchosin Rd. Which is quite noisy, I recommend not taking the trail so to the road. I gave it 5 stars regardless, incredibly scenic.

So many different ways to go and roads so it was a bit confusing and we git a little lost. But figured it all out in the end. Charlies trail is beautiful and some nice forest to walk through.

Beautiful walk in the forest! Mostly flat, with some hills. We did the loop & had a great time. One drawback, virtually none of the trails are marked, making it easy to get turned around/off your planned route.

First to Review

Easy, well-maintained trail. If you want to stick to the route, bring the gps map with you as there are many places to get turned around and this loop isn't marked, but don't worry about getting lost as there is only so far you can walk before hitting a city street:)
