You can either hike or drive to the top of this mountain, although parking at the top is very limited. There is a nice overlook to take in sweeping views of Victoria and the surrounding valley. Very tranquil escape from the bustling city.

I've been hiking up Mount Douglas for years. It's a great little hike, mostly shaded, and the 360 degrees views at the top are so rewarding! You can also push a stroller all the way up since there is a driveway up to the top.

Spent a rare, sunny day hiking the former motor bike trail of my boyhood. The trails now provide a good workout for hikers (and dogs). The views are spectacular.

After the hike we went down to the beach, beautiful.

Highly recommend it - weather permitting.

when in Victoria make a point to go up to this view point... it shows the city and other islands. Lots ot hiking trails throughout it and even a beautiful picnic area complete with tables overlooking the shoreline. another trail walks you down to the ocean where you can dip your toes. wonderful arbutus trees throughout the drive. I love the high canopy of this forested area in the hot summer... birds and back to nature.

Mt Doug park is our favourite walking destination. We can start by the seashore, wind our way through a beautiful forest and pop out atop the best long view south of Mt Finlayson.

There are actually several access points and a maze of trails so you'll always have something new to wonder at.
