Trail Advisory: Nature Sanctuary trails remain open during inclement conditions however we encourage all visitors to exercise care and attention as safety remains everyone's responsibility. Parts of the trail may be closed during peak flood periods. Call 250-479-0211 for current trail conditions.

 

The Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary offers an extensive trail system. For those who like to meander, the lake trails are an easy walk and the floating boardwalk puts you right in the centre of this significant wetland area.


For those looking for a little more exertion, the hill trails offer more of a challenge. The summit of Christmas Hill sits at 109 meters above sea level and rewards you with a spectacular view of the city. In the spring a sea of wildflowers surrounds you as you walk past the endangered Garry oak meadow.
