Victoria Hiking Trails RatingMount Doug as it's locally known is a remarkably easily accessible park with both 360 degree mountain views as well as a beautiful beach.  The beach and mountain are connected both by trails and roads allowing for a quick and beautiful visit by car or a longer, interesting and varied hike on foot among the huge Douglas Fir and Cedar trees.

Parking is available in four areas.  At the summit of Mount Doug (accessible by car only after 12pm daily), near the shores of Cordova Bay, at the gate, at the base of the road to the peak as well as further along the park at Glendenning Road.  Among the spider web of trails on Mount Doug there is quite an amazing cave.  Long abandoned from the old mining days it runs nearly 20 metres from the tiny entrance.  Don't forget to bring a flashlight.
