For visitors it is a great way to orient yourself to the region. It is an easy drive to the viewpoint through the Gary Oak groves

We cruised in and only had a few hours to tour the city. We used Fresh Air Tours and one of our stops was this park. It was at dusk and it was just beautiful. Would have loved to have time to do some trails!

We visited as part of our city bus tour and only had a limited time to enjoy. The views all over & around Vitoria are amazing and on a clear day the view extends to the snow capped mountains of Washington State.

The view on a clear day is spectacular ! You can see the San Juan islands and Mt. Baker. People just sit in there cars and watch the world go by.

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.

For such a short walk from the parking lot to the viewpoint, it was well worth the visit. Very clean. It was a cloudy day, but we still saw a lot of the city from this high park.

The hike is basically just straight up the hill and if you intend to cycle it, it is not considered an "easy" climb; rather high intermediate. There is a vehicle parking lot at the top and a good view though an urban view... More
