For those who enjoy nature and a good hike. Extensive trail networks can make your day into a good workout including Thetis Lake park trails for those wanting more exercise. Dogs also enjoy the trails. Best to check the trail maps on line https://www.crd.bc.ca/docs/default-source/parks-pdf/maps/francis-king-regional-park.pdf?sfvrsn=12
