This is definitely not a highway grade road, more a one lane dirt road that takes you from a turn-off of Harris Rd up along a winding logging-type road to the top of Mt. Warburton Pike. There are a couple of towers for various radio and television services, and an incredible view of Pender Island, Vancouver Island and beyond. It is really nice at any time of the year but absolutely stunning on a clear warm day in the summer.
Feral goats can usually be seen down along the ridge and the eagles always seem to be visible somewhere amongst the tree tops or cruising high in the wind currents. What I find sometimes is the very noticeable and awesome quiet. Not a sound from anywhere and you really do feel as though you have the entire planet to yourself.
Caution: Watch your footing in the dried summer grass, it can be very slippery when stepping off the trail. And watch your speed on the road, particularly on the return trip down, since there might be another visitor on the way up. The road is winding and not very wide.
If you get all the way to Saturna, don't miss the trip to the top.
