Walk around Upper Thetis Lake

This is a nice walk - a bit longer to go around the whole lake but the spring foliage should make it quite nice.  Not a lot of dog/runner traffic around that part of the lake!

LINK to a better map - showing how to get from Douglas Street to the area where the trail begins.

Please bring a toonie donation if you are able to cover the cost of the Meetup.com webspace!

      Sharon, at the top of this page, just below the title "Walk Around Upper . . . " there's the word "upload" in gold letters. Click on that, and it's easy. Angela

    Hi, I just posted some pics from the Thetis Lake walk (the one where Cidem and I turned back, got lost again, got led back to the path by another hiker and eventually found our way out.) Hope you all had a good walk, too.

    The hike is about 40 or so brisk minutes or 50 if the walk is more meandering.

    Hi there,
    Yes there is room for parking along Highland Road. It's about two minutes into the forested area once you've left the residential neighbourhood. I've just moved the marker a bit as I see that google mysteriously shifted the pin from where I last dropped it. There are only two possible parking areas where you will see lots of cars along the side of the road... our walking area (first area) and Prior lake parking (I recommend you turn around at this stage unless you like swimming nude in frigid waters)!

    Hi, again. Wondering about guesstimated time for the walk? Also, is there a parking lot or pull over outside of this trail into Thetis from Highland Road? I see the map, but not sure where along Highland, or about parking? Thank you!

    Good thing I re-read this...or I would have been in the main parking lot!!!

    this looks good although I may not be able to come since I usually have a skype conference call 8-10, and I live in Oak Bay. Not sure it's on this week, though, so if I can come, I'll be there.
