Walking and Hiking

Beautiful provincial park located nearby. Park at the old barn for a short walk to the ocean or meander through expansive meadows with lovely views of Mount Maxwell. For a slightly longer hike, drive and park at the end of road, and hike Daffodil Point. Mild inclines, garry oaks and a scenic ocean point make for a great outing.

Park at end of Trustees trail and take the short but steep (approx 1 hr+) trail to see the fairy doors and incredible views from the top.

Especially a nice walk during the rainy months when the creek is rushing. Nice loop by the creek and open meadows. Popular with dog walkers. Not too long. Good with children.
