Things to Do

Climb above the Highlands past dry, rocky outcrop vegetation to the 364-metre summit of Lone Tree Hill. From the summit, the view sweeps across the Malahat and the Highlands to Victoria and the distant Olympic Mountains.

The hilltop is an excellent spot for bird watching. Look for bald eagles, red-tailed hawks and turkey vultures riding the thermals overhead.

Lone Tree Hill is particularly spectacular in the spring, when wildflowers such as fawn lilies, shooting stars and common camas grace the hillside.
