Francis/King Regional Park in Saanich is a favourite park of ours thanks to its accessible trails through a beautiful forest that is great for all ages to explore.
Explore the Elsie King Trail, a self-guiding 800-metre loop interpretive trail that offers accessible access into the park with a cedar boardwalk and gravel surfaces. The forest loop includes interpretive signs, rest areas with benches and a shelter.
You can also venture into Heritage Grove via other trails in the park to see some of the tallest Douglas fir trees in the area (some are approximately 500 years old!). If you’re in the mood for a longer trek, follow the trails of Francis/King Regional Park to neighbouring Thetis Lake Regional Park.
