Mount Finlayson in Goldstream Provincial Park is 19 km north of Victoria on Hwy 1. The trail takes you up to a scenic lookout of Victoria. For the majority, this trail is quite easy, however, it gets slightly more challenging toward the end when the terrain gets steeper.
Park at Goldstream Provincial Park and cross the bridge to access the trailhead on your right. For the best viewing of the wildflowers and unique ecology of these mountains, try early April.
