Picturesque concrete urban walkway around busy bay with ferries and seaplanes. Multiple access/parking lots via harbour water taxi. You can also walk from downtown via Johnson Street Bridge. The east half leads to the popular Spinnakers restaurant and brewpub. Mid way along east half is upscale Boom & Batten restaurant and coffee bar. The west half is a narrower concrete walkway that is partly elevated over water and features more varied flora. You'll pass by many benches and often seals and otter families in sea.

Nice long stroll that can be completed in an hour but it took us a bit longer as we paused to take in the scenery and take pictures. Bathroom at the end of the trail @ the historic town of Esquimalt.

Perfect easy trail along Victoria Harbour. Note that All trails has a typo in the name of the trail. They call it "Wetsong" when the actual name is "Westsong". To their credit, they corrected the typo within an hour of me contacting them. This is one of my favourite easy walks ever! You walk along the entire side of Victoria Harbour. Beautiful!

Trail Condition: Easy to follow, pavement pathway by the ocean. Aesthetic: Great walk by the ocean with some great picture spots and Spinnakers if you like purchasing treats. Distance/Elevation: Flat, no hills or elevation. Good distance. View Point/Summit: No summit or view point but lovely view of the ocean.

I'm not sure why this trail is considered as moderate, this is a walk I do everyday from my home to downtown. It's fairly easy, the view is beautiful and you get to see a lot of birds and even marine life is you're lucky. This walk makes me feel grateful to live in such a beautiful place

Pretty walk along waterfront. View of inner harbour. Great for visiting relatives, but not challenging in any way.
