Hike Pender Island

We had super good luck with the ferries this past long weekend travelling on the ferries. Long weekends can be difficult getting between islands because so many people are travelling and there is limited room on the ferries. If you are travelling on long weekends make sure you arrive super early.

Our first walk was at Brooks Regional Park. The beaches, driftwood and the geology were beautiful I hope you enjoy the drone footage.

On Pender Island there are lots of trails, On Sunday afternoon I went out and checked out some of the small trails close to our air b & b. Schooner/chart trail was the first trail. The next trail was Ursula People Park. These short trails had beautiful lookout points. Next stop was Schooner at the Reef Park, it was another beautiful lookout point.

The best sign I saw on my walk was Rest and be Thankful. Words of Wisdom on Thanksgiving weekend.

The best hike on Pender Island was Mount Norman on South Pender Island, which is part of the gulf Islands National Park Reserve. It was 1.3 km to the lookout point but a strenuous hike because it was pretty much all incline. It was 266 meters of elevation. The thing I know for sure is that the greater the climb the better the view. I thought the view was one of the best I have ever had on a hike.

We had a great weekend on Pender Island. Thanks so much for watching and we will see you next week.
