Map of Trails
Saysutshun has more than 22 kilometres of well-tended trails that will suit every age and fitness level. The relatively level trails are perfect for running or biking, or for a gentle stroll through nature.
If this is your first visit to the island, make sure to take enough time to explore; there are many trails to choose from, and each offers something different and exciting! Our coastal trails take you past sandy and pebbled beaches that invite you to stop for a refreshing swim. The Channel trail passes the old sandstone quarry and leads you to the north end of the island with it’s unparalleled views of Departure Bay. You can design your outdoor adventure to include birdwatching, a forest stroll, beach combing, or a meander through the all the significant cultural and historical sites on the island.

Our most popular walk, the 8km tour around the perimeter of the island takes about 2 hours on average (more if you stop to admire the many lookout points, or read the interpretive signs along the way).
Many of the trails are multi-purpose use for both walking and biking. Check out our Trail Map for details (you can download it above).
Your four-legged hiking friend is welcome on Saysutshun, but needs to be on leash at all times.
