This is another new walk this week.
We will be walking along the North side of Elk Lake until we reach Bear Hill regional park. Then it is a steady uphill climb to the top. Then we will head down the west side to Bear Hill Rd then back to Elk Lake.
The park features some of the oldest rock on Vancouver Island and gentle to steep forest trails. A profusion of wildflowers in the spring,mixed woodland of western red cedar, Douglas fir, Garry oak and arbutus and great views of the Saanich Peninsula and Haro Strait
The last 2 time I walk the trail I saw deer.
Distance: approx. 6-7km
Average pace[masked]km/h maybe slower on the up hill portion
Terrain: dirt trails, roots, mud, one steep hill, and steep downhill, and a small road section.
