The largest park in the Saanich area, Mount Douglas offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the area around Victoria, including east to Haro Strait, north and west through Saanich, and south towards downtown Victoria. Mount Douglas has a network of trails along its slopes and down to the beach area across Cedar Hill Road. The level of hiking is easy to moderate and dog friendly. With year-round activities and experiences, Mount Douglas Park provides inspiration and enjoyment to thousands of visitors each year. Take an easy stroll or make it a strenuous climb - there is much to see along the way. Enjoy the serenity of the ocean from the summit or the beach with a view of Mount Baker. Come to the park to enjoy the extensive trail systems named after the early settlers and farms in the area – it’s likely they established some of them. At 1.88km2 (188 hectares), the park contains the largest urban forest on the Saanich Peninsula. You can explore this forest on more than 21 km of trails. From one of the many parking areas, a variety of trails will lead you through the forest, around the base of the summit, up to the spectacular view at the mountain summit or down to the secluded, sandy beach. Local First Nations have used the area in and around Mount Douglas Park for thousands of years. The mountain was originally known as "Hill of Cedars". Fort Victoria, built-in 1843, had its cedar pickets milled using wood from the park. Governor James Douglas established this park in 1858 as a Government Reserve. Government work projects initiated in the Depression years led to the construction of Churchill Road. It also had a teahouse, washroom, and "crew huts". The City of Victoria took over the land on September 30, 1889, from the Province it became Mount Douglas Park. In 1992, Saanich began looking after managing the park. Over the years it has grown from 1.5 km2 (150 ha) to 1.83 km2 (183 ha) and the park will continue to be managed as a natural area.

Hike up to the top of Mount Douglas (about an hour depending on which trail you choose) for a stunning panoramic view of the city and harbour

There are several trails through Mt. Doug Park that suit all levels of walkers/hikers. It is also a great place to trek during the hot weather as the tree canopy provides shade. The various trails are marked according to difficulty, but I have been known to vere onto an unfamiliar trail by accident.
