The largest park in the Saanich area, Mount Douglas offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the area around Victoria, including east to Haro Strait, north and west through Saanich, and south towards downtown Victoria.
Mount Douglas has a network of trails along its slopes and down to the beach area across Cedar Hill Road. It is very common to drive to the small parking lot at the top of the mountain along Churchill Drive and park there before doing the short walk to one of the two peaks to enjoy the view. However, the route below will describe a hike that begins from the parking lot near the beach area and follows the Irvine Trail to the top of Mount Douglas, returning via the same route.
