Fodor's Expert Review Goldstream Provincial Park

West Shore Park (National/State/Provincial)
Eagles, bears, and three species of salmon thrive in this 477-hectare (1,180-acre) wilderness park 16 km (10 miles) north of downtown Victoria. Picnic areas, easy riverside walks, and challenging hikes draw visitors in summer. The latest addition is a skills development trail for mountain-bikers. In winter, a spotting scope is set up in the Goldstream Nature House to watch hundreds of bald eagles gather to feed on salmon. Naturalists provide guidance and interpretive programs at the Nature House, a year-round visitor center that's a 10-minute walk from the parking lot.
