Individual Trail

BC-Vancouver Island / Langford

26 min driving from Downtown Victoria

At the base of the Malahat, enjoy a short meander through a lush and gorgeous pathway past the stellar "Niagara Falls" to the Goldstream Trestle. Now decommissioned, the track route was called the Esquimalt & Nanaimo railway and it can be hiked for the majority of its length. While not sanctioned, hikers may venture onto the trestle at their own risk to peer over the gorge. There are no support railings, and the gaps between railway ties vary in width, making it a challenge to traverse. Locals often frequent this location as a cute date venue for picnics.
