Walk #4 offers clear day views of Vancouver Island and travels through mixed-wood forest in which are situated three benches beautifully crafted by volunteer Jamie Doig, with maple wood donated by Charlotte and Tom Cameron, and installed by GaLTT work crews.

  • Approx Time: 1.5 hours
  • Approx Distance: 6 km
  • Difficulty: moderate (These trails are relatively foot-friendly with some roots and rocks on the trail surface as well as soggy, muddy, or wet sections after rainfalls. The trail down from the viewpoint is moderately steep with potentially slippery sections.)
  • Begin: at the end of Jeanette Avenue – GaLTT post 16

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.”
