On-campus trails

Hit the trails

Walk, hike or run on dozens of forested trails throughout our scenic 260-hectare campus.

Choose from trails that meander through old growth forests — home to some of Victoria’s tallest Douglas fir trees. Or wander through the Hatley Park Gardens. Catch stunning views of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, while you watch migratory birds at Esquimalt Lagoon.

Download a trail map or book a free orientation with Recreation Centre staff. They can guide you on three-kilometre or 10-kilometre routes.

Note: Dogs are welcome on Royal Roads grounds, provided they are kept on-leash and remain on designated trails.
