Mount Washington Alpine Resort and neighboring Strathcona Provincial Park deliver some of the most varied and challenging hiking in the Vancouver Island region.
Mount Washington's seven alpine trails – all serviced by the Eagle Express chairlift – vary in accordance with hiking skill levels. Another 40 trails are found at Strathcona Provincial Park.
A constant favourite, the 0.7km/0.43mi Top of the World Trail is an easy hike with a stunning panoramic view from Mount Washington's peak. The 2.1km/1.3mi Linton's Trail is an intermediate trail, which requires plenty of walking. It does reward with spectacular views of Strathcona Provincial Park and Mount Albert Edwards. Linton's Trail is also an active access road for mountain vehicles.
Wanting a challenge? The Giv'er Trail is an advanced route straight up-and-down the peak. Another advanced trail, the 4.3km/2.67mi West Summit Ridge, meanders through West Basin, literally peaks at Mount Washington, and descends through alpine meadows.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort, British Columbia
Mount Washington is home to one of the most spectacular coastal alpine settings in North America, with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop on one side and scenic Strathcona Park bordering the other.
In winter, Mount Washington receives a legendary 10.5 metres of annual snowfall. The resort is acknowledged as the home of Canada's deepest pile, however, it's not all about the snow! In summer, the mountain and surrounding resort community transforms itself into a major destination for mountain bikers, hikers and summer alpine enthusiasts.
