This winding three kilometer walkway begins at Songhees Point or Pallastsis to West Bay along the northern shoreline of the Inner and Middle Harbour. The walkway provides spectacular views of downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, Middle, and Outer Harbours and a panorama of Washington State’s Olympic Mountains. Victoria Harbour Ferry provided access at floats just east of Songhees Point and at West Bay, west of Captain Jacobson Park, the walkway’s western terminus. The footpath trails across glacial scraped granite with sections of pavement, bridges over sandy beaches, and boardwalks. There are a number of access point along the way and numerous benches upon which to rest and enjoy the diversity of the harbour’s activities. Spinnaker’s Brewpub, Canada’s first brewpub is located around the halfway point overlooking Lime Bay.
