Mount Work Summit Trail
Highlights: Beautiful sweeping views from the highest point on the Saanich Peninsula (449m).
Directions to the main entrance:
Follow Pat Bat Hwy (#17) from Victoria and exit at West Saanich Rd. Follow West Saanich Rd, take a left at Wallace Drive, and left again on Willis Point Rd. Final left onto Ross-Durance Rd and parking lot is on the left. The trail head is at the entrance to the parking lot.
Distance: 2.5km one way, can hike down the other side (1.8km) and back up again if you feel like it. The trail is steep for sections but not too challenging.
Notes: I went when it was really windy and it felt rather dangerous on the summit - like I could be blown away. I weight about 130 lbs so not likely, but still, be careful!
From the same parking lot there are also trails into Gowlland Tod Park
