Description and Tips

Jocelyn Hill loop is a beautiful mountain trail, with most of the elevation gains gradual/moderate. The occasional section has quick elevation gains, but the trail is well-marked and well-maintained, so it is easy to navigate. Much of the trail is through fresh West coast forest, so it is enjoyable to do anytime of year. Rocky outcrops are easy to navigate, and lead to the highlights of the hike. The gems of the hike are the stunning viewpoints along the way. Views of Finlayson Arm inlet, the city of Victoria, Mount Finlayson and the expansive views towards Washington State across the Juan de Fuca Strait are awe-inspiring. Not to be missed!
