Hiking & Walking
Victoria itself is a very walkable city, but if you are looking for more than just a stroll through the streets we have plenty of hiking and walking trails to choose from that will provide you with fresh mountain air and sweeping vistas.
Galloping Goose and Lochside Regional Trails
You can travel on the 55 kilometre Galloping Goose Regional Trail and Lochside Trail; from the BC Ferries terminal near Sidney, B.C. to downtown Victoria, B.C. or out to Sooke, B.C. and beyond.
Goldstream Provincial Park
Massive trees, majestic waterfalls, a meandering river that meets the sea, flowers, birds and fascinating fish are but a few of the attractions that draw people to Goldstream Provincial Park, a mere 16 kilometres from downtown Victoria.
Juan De Fuca Trail
The Juan de Fuca Marine Trail is ideal for day hikes. Hikers who lack the experience and equipment for overnight hikes can travel light and explore more on day excursions. You can complete the entire 47 kilometres trail in four or five day-hikes.
West Coast Trail
Part of the Pacific Rim National Park, you can complete the difficult and physically demanding 77 kilometre West Coast Trail in five to seven days. Open May 1 to September 30.
