Victoria, British Columbia is one of the most beautiful and health conscious cities on the planet. What a treat to live here!

The following lists are great places to go for a walk, run, hike or bike. We at METRO consider them a “fitness guide” to Victoria. (Maps are linked to each item)

  1. Clover Point area. You can park here and go either along the Dallas Road cliff side walkway, or along the Ross Bay walkway. A beautiful region whether you are biking, walking or running.
  2. Breakwater. You can park your car along Dallas Road and indulge in a beautiful walk or run along the breakwater. It now has guard rails for you and your family’s peace of mind. If you get a little hungry, there is a wonderful bistro back at the entrance.
  3. Mt Douglas Park. Whether you want to hike, run or bike up this majestic icon of Victoria, you are sure to work up a sweat!
  4. Cedar Hill Golf Course. No, this is not for golfers! But the chip trail around this beautiful course has many winding detours and a lot of elevation to make your walk or run a great, 3 KM workout.
  5. Songhees (Westbay) WalkwayRun or walk this gorgeous waterfront region. You will encounter some nice refreshment options along the way (e.g.: Spinachers Pub/Restaurant). Enjoy!

Try these out and then come back for a PART 2 of our “Fitness Guide to Victoria.” We will be helping you make the most of this wonderful city!
