Baker Ridge Trail connects Baker Road to Quarry Drive.

This trail, together with Quarry Drive Park Trail, make for a nice hiking loop. Park at the end of Baker Road, take the stairs down to the water’s edge, then turn right down the beach. check the tide tables before you head out because at high tide there is not much beach to walk on.  After a few hundred meters you’ll see a concrete ramp and steps leading back up to the ridge. Follow that trail (Quarry Drive Park Trail) up and over the ridge and you end up on Quarry Drive. Turn right, walk a couple of hundred meters to the end of the cul-de-sac, where you’ll see Baker Ridge trail that takes you back to Baker Road. This trail is steep and you need to be careful when descending it. The entire loop will take between 45 minutes to an hour depending on your hiking speed.

Dog Restrictions

Dogs are welcome on trails within the PARC system. Our trails are not off-leash areas, but have a ‘Leash Smart’ common sense approach to your walking with your dog.

‘Leash Smart’ practices ask that dog guardians:

  • Keep dogs in sight and under voice control
  • Leash dogs at all trail heads, intersections and when approaching others or wildlife
  • Control your dog to avoid conflict with wildlife, people or other dogs. If your dog does not always return when called, then please keep it on a leash.
  • Do not let your dog run off the trail, dig or chase wildlife.
  • Bring your plastic bags to pick up after your dog, and take them with you to dispose of.

Salt Spring Islanders love their dogs, and dogs keep us walking and healthy.
