Hiking on Salt Spring Island

With epic views of the gulf islands and wonderful pine scented air, hiking on Salt Spring Island is a must. Remember to bring a pair of hiking shoes and some water to reach some of these remarkable vistas.

Mount Erskine’s Summit is great for sunsets. After trekking through the rocky forest with its own viewpoints, you reach the summit with the Salish Sea and Vancouver Island in the distance. Bring flashlights for the trip down if going for sunset.

If you are in need of a quick nature trek, Duck Creek is a great spot and it is dog friendly. Mossy covered trees and a stream offer a peaceful backdrop to relax and take in the fresh air. If you don’t have time for a bigger hike, this is a good choice.

Reginald Hill has what is considered one of the best view on the island and should be on everyone’s Salt Spring Island Hiking lists. It hosts panoramic views of the Salish Sea, the Fulford Valley, and Vancouver Island. Bring a camera, because you will be taking a dozen photos to share with others. It is a bit of a tougher hike with its steepness but not that long. The trail is very pretty but it is rocky and mossy at many parts so watch your step. Once you get to the top it is all worth it!
