Victoria Hiking Trails RatingLone Tree Hill Regional Park is a wonderful, hidden bit of paradise deep in the hills of Victoria has a beautiful panoramic view from its summit.  The hike is fairly short and relaxing at just 1.6k trailhead to summit.  Expect to hike for under 30 minutes to reach the viewpoint.  The views for such a short hike are quite amazing.  You can see the distant Malahat, Victoria as well as the very distant Olympic Mountains in the United States.

As you get closer to the summit of Lone Tree Hill you will see several short trails to various rock outcrops before the summit.  Each one is a hidden world of its own, far removed from the next rock outcrop by the always hilly terrain.  If you encounter others on the trail, which is actually fairly rare, you can find one of these side-hills and have your own panoramic view.

Dogs are welcome in the park, however, bikes, camping and fires are not.  In the springtime you will see spectacular swaths of wildflowers.  The original, lone tree that gave the park its name is now just a weather-beaten tree stump.  It was a 200 year-old Douglas fir.

There is another lone tree a the summit, however, an Arbutus tree just a few metres from the original, lone tree, now dominates the hilltop.  Lone Tree Hill Regional Park is just a short, 30 minute drive from downtown Victoria, and driving there is half the fun.  Winding country roads take you will into the wilderness around Victoria.  Goldstream Provincial Park is not far from Lone Tree Hill, and just a short 10 minute drive away via a very narrow and wonderfully winding road.
