Det skal I lave

This will be an adventure of west coast ruggedness, some scrambling and some amazing views of the Olympic Mountains, Coastal Mountain range and views up the Island and Victoria. We will pass some of the biggest and oldest trees on Vancouver Island, such as Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedars that are 600 years old!
It is a 20 minute drive (16 km) to Goldstream Park, the start of our adventure. I will meet you at the sign post in the parking lot. This park is set in a rainforest and is home to an annual salmon run in October/November with thousands of salmon making their way up the river. It is also home to black bears, cougars and deer, as well as numerous small animals like raccoons, minks, beavers, otters and Gray and Douglas squirrels. Migratory and resident birds such as hummingbirds, eagles, turkey vultures, ducks and gulls can be spotted throughout the park.
We will make our way to the trailhead of Mt.Finlayson. This is a one hour hike to the top with steep sections and some rock scrambles with cascading waterfalls and creeks. It is a hiking favourite by locals. We will picnic at the top with sandwiches and drinks (bought and wrapped seperately and COVID safe) while enjoying the amazing views of Victoria and surrounding area . We will then make our way down the other side of the mountain, around the back and then down again finishing in Goldstream Park.

I was born and raised in Victoria and have hiked many of the mountains, forests and oceans around lower Vancouver Island for over 40 years. I graduated from the University of Victoria in a kinesiology degree and run a local adventure company, Foggygirl Adventures that specializes in hikes in Victoria. I also operate a social media group on Vancouver Island for hiking and adventures. I currently have another Air BnB experience in Victoria which is on Mount Douglas, an easier to moderate hike which boasts a 5/5 rating and is consistently listed as a top Victoria experience. This hike on Mount Finlayson is a bit more challenging and does require someone who knows the area in order to navigate the network of trails around the mountain. Only a few locals know of the "other" trails that can take you to more tranquil parts of the forest to enjoy

Her skal du være

This trail has been one of my favourites for many years, as such I know trails and routes that many in Victoria are not familiar with. I have found the best way to come down the mountain that is less strenuous on the knees, less busy and lush beautiful surroundings along the way. At the top I can explain to you all the areas that you can see from the U.S. side to up Vancouver Island. I have general knowledge of the local plants, trees and animals

Definetely check out this hike. Trish picked me up and we drove out to beautiful Goldstream Park. Her knowledge of the area and complex trail systems up/down Mt Finlayson was great. I would highly recommend this hike.
