Just a short hike, through forest and up new stairs brings you to a beautiful look out over Gibson’s and Keats Island. Many vantage points gives you different views, looking down on tree tops and if you’re lucky soaring eagles. Best to do on a...More
Been to Soames numerous times. It offers nice trails and a well staired climb to the top of Soames Hill. When at the top you have an excellent view of Gibson’s. Afterward we sometimes head to Persephones for a beer. Their dog freindly and it’s...More
The hike is a bit strenuous, but once you the top of the hill there is a beautiful view of the bay with snowy mountains in the distance. There are many stairs leading up to the hill, and it gets a bit confusing where the...More
A pleasant and leisurely steep climb on a well kept trail takes about forty-five minutes.There is a lovely picture postcard view of Gibson’s harbour from the top. Come as you are dressed for sightseeing with comfortable shoes.. Go up North Road to Chamberlain, turn right,...More
Recommend by our B&B. The tourists information in Gibsons can give you a map on how to get to the different start points. Note there are three viewing points. The first is good and just requires climbing steps. The second is a little higher and...More
It's a bit of an uphill trek to get to the top or the viewing spots, but it's well worth it. Probably a 30 minute climb but you're assisted by well-built steps (railings etc). I think that even kids could do it.
Fantastic views of...More
Yes. It is about a 3.5 km walk, (less than an hour) either along Marine Drive toward Gibsons to the Soames Rd entrance or up North Rd to the Bridgeman Rd entrance. This local government parks (SCRD) website has details.
It is definitely not all flat. The climb to the top is steep but there are other trails in the park that are flatter. You can hike it comfortably to the top in an hour. If you climb it via the east side it is very steep... More
It is definitely not all flat. The climb to the top is steep but there are other trails in the park that are flatter. You can hike it comfortably to the top in an hour. If you climb it via the east side it is very steep but mostly stairs until you reach the rocks about 100 vertical feet below the top. If you climb it from the west (via the Bridgman Road side) it is also mainly stairs to this position but they are broken up by a number of landings. (the route I would recommend). From this position to the top you are walking on solid rock but it can be slippery after a rain and it is moss covered. If you are concerned about walking on uneven ground or rock, the view from the lower lookouts over Gibsons is beautiful and avoids the last 100 foot climb. Whether you want to do the hike while pregnant would definitely depend on how far along you are.
