Maybe one of the best walks in the CRD. A nice relatively flat walk around both lakes a 10k loop, can be a little muddy etc in the winter but runners pretty much can do the job, enjoy!

The trails are great and the dogs love the walks as well as the kids enjoy the ducks in the lake. I haven't swam here for a lot of years but many people do.

Stopped by on way to ferry. At the time we were there it was very quiet and peaceful although I could imagine that it got a bit busy on summer weekends. Parking was readily available but signposting not great. Didn't see any elk or beaver.

This is a great place to go for a walk or run and end with a picnic! It is a long walk so make sure you bring comfortable shoes!

Elk and Beaver lake have wonderful trails and multiple beachs. Bring a bbq and spend the day. Located 5 mins out side downtown Victoria. Dog Friendly and a " dog park" to boot. The lake often closes for swimming based on water quality. The water...More
