Occupying Mount Newton, a locally prominent peak topped with a giant golf ball (radar installation), 430-acre (174-ha) John Dean Provincial Park offers kilometers of excellent hiking trails. The park protects one of the largest tracts of old-growth Douglas ?r and Garry oak on the Saanich Peninsula, as well as rare and copious wild?owers. Start by following the Valley Mist Trail, .1 mile west, dropping into a cool forested draw and coming to a junction. The Illahie Loop continues left to the Emerald Pool and site of John Dean's cabin. In 1921 he donated much of his claim to the province, making it the first donated park in British Columbia. In subsequent years, other families and folks donated adjoining lands and the province added parcels too, enlarging this beloved park to its current size. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States. We plan to expand our topomap database in the future, however this map is not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
