Strathcona Provincial Park, Vancouver Island, offers many challenging multi-day adventures. And many very challenging day hikes.
In this post, however, I focus on easy highway-accessible day hikes recommended for kids, families, everyone.
I hiked most of these. All good.
- Lower Myra Falls
- Lady Falls
Almost everyone stops for the short walk to the viewing platform at Lady Falls.
- Elk River Viewpoint
- Lupin Falls
- Auger Point
- Karst Creek
- Wild Ginger
- Shepherd Creek
Without question Lower Myra Falls is best of the easy day hikes. Don’t miss it. And bring a bathing suit if weather is good.
Auger Point Fire Trail was interesting in seeing how some trees can survive major forest fires.
If you stay at Buttle Lake campground, I loved their Beach Access Trail.
I was cycling this trip, hiding my bike in the trees between each short nature walk.
