With its exquisite seaside setting, flat terrain, forest and farmlands, Sidney's a natural for gentle, scenic hiking.
Straight From Town
Sidney's 2km/1.24mi waterfront promenade may not tax too much, but is, without question, the loveliest hike in town. The passing panorama includes Sidney's band shell, which may be in the midst of a summer concert; snow-capped Mount Baker across the Salish Sea; that bronze chappie on the park bench; and the Port Sidney Marina.
Accessible straight from town, the 29km/18mi Lochside Trail crosses the Saanich Peninsula and connects to the Galloping Goose segment of the Trans Canada Trail. The Lochside Walkway with its beautiful ocean views also begins in Sidney.
