This short but challenging 90-kilometer (54-mile) drive travels from the gentle east coast of Vancouver Island to Strathcona Provincial Park, BC’s oldest, situated deep within the island’s rugged core. Although most of the park is the domain of the wilderness hiker and mountaineer, the road along the eastern shores of Buttle Lake allows drivers to see one of the island’s greatest concentrations of scenic wonders. This is a there-and-back drive with the option of making the side trip to Gold River near the Pacific coast. Special attractions: The largest protected area on Vancouver Island, exciting driving along Buttle Lake, excellent mountain and lake views, and access to hiking trails into the high alpine. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
