Hike in Gowlland Tod Park

Location visible to members


Gowlland Tod Provincial Park is a beautiful park running along the Saanich Inlet with views along and above Finlayson Arm. We will be hiking up to Jocelyn Hill via the Timberman Trail with an additional exploratory hike to Anderson Hill.

This will be a 3 boot hike, please read our boot rating system to determine if this hike is for you: Club Tread Day Hike Rating System (

Start time:10:00AM at the usual Club Tread meeting place. Approximate time of return will be 3:30-4 pm. If you are not a member of Club Tread, please call me before 6 pm the day before the hike at[masked]-1195.

We will carpool to the trail head and share gas costs. For this event, each participant will pay their driver $2.

Bring your backpack, water, snacks, lunch, warm clothes and hiking boots. It is a club tradition that you bring your boots in a bag so as not to mess up people's cars on the ride back. And, don’t forget rain gear! We will cancel in the event of torrential rains but not showers:)

Please be aware that this is a Club Tread hike and our rules apply. You can read our policies for hikes at our main website ( Also note our guidelines for Essential Items For Your Day Pack ( and Hiking and Backpacking Etiquette (

I will also have our waiver for everyone to sign, this is the standard indemnity and release that we have all participants sign for Victoria Club Tread events, and you must supply a current emergency contact phone#. You can see a copy of the waiver here (
