Great hike, trails get a little overgrown in some parts but that’s what makes it an adventure :)

Easy trail around 2 connected lakes. Nice scenery on very even, maintained walkway. Here during the week in September and it was not very crowded but I imagine with its proximity to Victoria it gets really busy in evening and weekends.

If you find yourself here it's a great way to stretch the legs close to the city.

Went on this hike on Victoria Day long weekend and loved it There were many people there but wasn't crowded. It was a fairly easy hike with some steep sections but nothing extreme. I like how you have the option of also circling Upper Theirs lake which adds about 5 km more. It felt longer than the lower lake but had some really beautiful views.
Especially loved how it is an off-leash trail.

Nice little family friendly stroll around a small lake. Heavily populated. No challenges. Beautiful trees.

There are two lakes here, connected at one small point, so you can hike around both or just one. There is also a small hill to hike up on the east side of the park, it has a great view of the lake! There is no sign, just look for a side trail going up a steep slope after you are clear of the main beach. The park allows for dogs to be off leash outisde of the summer months.
