Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park to McDonald Provincial Park Professional Review and Guide
"Spanning great changes in scenery and climate, the ride from Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park to McDonald Provincial Park brings you out of the raw north to the warmth of the southern Gulf Islands. From the summits of the Coast Range gleaming across the island-studded Strait of Georgia, to ships and boats cruising this inland passage to and from Alaska, the scenery is outstanding. In this section, the route follows Highway 19 and Highway 19A south along the east coast of Vancouver Island. The roads are extremely busy. To end the day, the route leaves the hustle and bustle of the four-lane highway and jogs east on rural roads to catch the ferry to Salt Spring Island, one of the Gulf Islands, followed by a second scenic ferry ride to Sidney."
