Hill 60 Hiking

Drive 8 miles (13 km) west along Highway 18 from Highway 1 (Trans-Canada) and at the end of the three-lane highway make a sharp turn right onto gravel road. There are several parking spots.

Hill 60 is a sprawling mountain stretching about nine miles along the highway. The greater part of it should only be explored by experienced hikers as it is criss-crossed by old roads and one can easily get lost. It is named after an engagement in the First World War in which many Canadians lost their lives in particular men of the Cowichan Valley.

Although there are no trails you may like to try this route a short hike up to the southeast triangulation point with a beautiful view of the whole valley.
