Victoria Hiking Trail RatingHuge Douglas-fir trees and tremendous views are the highlights of this beautiful Provincial Park just 30 minutes from downtown Victoria, near Sidney.  Located high up on Mount Newton near Victoria, John Dean Provincial Park looks across Saanich Peninsula, the Gulf Islands and the distant Cascade Mountains.  There are five main trails that wind through the park to various wonderful viewpoints and places of interest.

You can even see the old cabin site of John Dean, who donated the park in 1921.  There are two old growth ecosystems in the park.  One of Garry oak and the other Douglas-fir.  Biking, hiking, wildlife viewing and picnicking are all popular at John Dean Provincial Park, however camping is not welcome.  There is quite a lot to explore in this relatively expansive and very interesting mountain park.  Over six kilometres of hiking trails run throughout the park and there are frequent trail signs and map-boards to guide you.
