This 80-acre park has a number of great viewpoints – over to Mt. Maxwell, to Active Pass and out to Galiano Island. The trail, in Bryant Hill Park, is a 2.2 km or 1.4 miles long loop that meanders through mature forest. About 250 meters up the trail you’ll pass the connector trail over to Peter Arnell Park. However, keep going straight. The first kilometre is an old gently sloping logging road. When the trail turns to the left (south) you’ll cross a little stream and quickly gain back the elevation lost during the first kilometre (in other words it is steep!). From there the trail continues on up and down hills until you cross another little bridge, putting you back where you started. This trail is not suitable for small children or strollers, and you’ll need sturdy shoes or boots.
