Our second walk offers forest and Garry oak meadow trails with lovely shoreline views towards Saturnina, Breakwater and Valdes islands.

  • Approx Time: one hour
  • Approx Distance: 2.5 km return (a figure-eight loop route)
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate (a few short steep sections with tree roots) – please note that bare rock surfaces and mossy patches along the northeast loop may be slippery
  • Begin: Drumbeg Provincial Park parking lot off Stalker Road

NOTE: trailheads are marked with painted rocks (thanks to Gabriola’s Grade 6/7 class!) and routes are marked with green flagging tape. Both will be removed in late March.

All Winter Walkabout routes are archived on our Trails and Maps page, our Blog page from the main menu, and are searchable by “winter walkabout.”
