Length: 2 km round trip.

Time: 1 hrs

Trailhead: Turn off the Fulford-Ganges road on the bend just south of Salt Spring and Gary Oaks wineries, and follow the road to the end.

Special Features: Burgoyne Bay offers beautiful views and diverse vegetation to explore including Douglas Fir, Hemlock and Western Red Cedar as well as, Arbutus and Garry Oaks, meadow flowers as well as opportunities to see aquatic animals, birds and more. Check out the surprising display of daffodils in the spring!


The trail to the right from the end of the lower car park winds through some lush forest and takes you to a rocky outcrop with a lovely little (very little) beach and some low rocks right down on the water - a great place for a lunch with fantastic views out over the ocean.  If you look around you can find signs of the homestead that used to be here - and in the spring the daffodils still come up. Its not a very long hike but its great for some fresh air and scenery, and you can always combine it with some of the other trails in the park.
