If you are looking for a easy hike with a super rewarding view of Victoria this is the place for you. Don’t feel like hiking, no worries you can drive up the to the top!

A very short walk in a special gary oak reserve. Lots of deer sleeping in the bushes and birds to watch. A good look of the city without the difficult climb like Pkols (Mt.Doug). You can also drive to the top

Took my tour group up to the top so they could enjoy the view. It was a beautiful day and they all seemed to enjoy it. Parking is available for cars and tour buses.

even on a cloudy day, get a great view of the surrounding area and water on three sides, not much else up here and would be a great place for a restaurant but parking at a premium though free.
