Victoria Walking/Hiking Trail Loop w1
This 10 km shoreline tour starts and begins at Clover Point, the Pacific Terminus of the Trans Canada Trail and takes advantage of Victoria's beautiful shoreline, exciting harbourfront, historic buildings and following the Trans Canada Trail to return south, passing directly through the city's crown jewel, Beacon Hill Park. Take advantage of an amazing spur - the Ogden Point Breakwater, now featuring handrails to accommodate visitors of all ages and mobility. The entire loop can be walked in 2 hours, but with so many attractions along the way, it can often take over 3!

Trails BC Withdraws from the Canadian Trail Federation
Trails BC Withdraws from the Canadian Trail Federation over concerns in its involvement with the National Trails Coalition.
Effective March 5th, 2009, the Trails Society of British Columbia (Trails BC) has formally withdrawn its membership in the Canadian Trails Federation. We have taken this action because we do not believe that the CTF is fulfilling its mandate to represent the interests of non-motorized trail users in its dealings with the National Trails Coalition.

Trail maintenance issues are the responsibility of the Trail Steward, which is either the trail owner or a group given authorization to perform maintenance work. Trails BC is a trail steward for a very limited number of trail segments on the Trans Canada Trail; unfortunately, if a major trail issue occurs along the Trans Canada Trail, there is often very little we can do about it - but we can try to pass on the information to the trail steward, if one exists.
