Ladysmith's extensive network of trails provides great beginner-to-advance hiking.
Head out on the forested loop of Holland Creek Trail for several hours, or challenge more difficult trials leading to Heart Lake and Stocking Lake. Other hiking options include Ladysmith's historic downtown and waterfront. A detailed Ladysmith trail guide is available at the Visitor Centre.
Holland Creek Trail
The forested loop of Holland Creek Trail runs for 6.4km/4mi from the craggy heights above Ladysmith on a southeasterly course to an estuary at the ocean's edge. The trail is such a beloved feature here that a group of local citizens known as the Friends of Holland Creek Trail continue to raise funds to buy up more land and extend/maintain/protect the route's natural splendor.
Leave the car at a number of access points and tackle all or part of the Holland Creek Trail.
