Lone Tree Hill Regional Park in Victoria BC

by hwilde on December 12, 2012

Lone Tree Hill Regional Park is located in the rugged district of Highlands and is a prime example of wilderness near the city.  This 31 hectare, undeveloped park offers a moderate to challenging trail leading to the summit of Lone Tree Hill, where you’ll discover amazing views of the Highlands, Malahat, Victoria and in the distance the Olympic Mountain range and Mt. Baker in the US.

The summit of Lone Tree Hill is a rocky outcropping that does feature the decaying trunk of the original Lone Tree – a Douglas Fir and its successor, a gnarly Arbutus.  During the spring you may see delicate wildflowers including fawn lilies, camas and shooting stars and at any time you are likely to see raptors like bald eagles, turkey vultures or red-tailed hawks soaring overhead.

How to Get to Lone Tree Hill Regional Park

Take the Trans-Canada Highway from Victoria, and exit #14 at Millstream Road. Turn right onto Millstream Road and follow until you reach the junction of Millstream Lake Road. Turn left here to continue on Millstream Road.  The park entrance is on the right. It takes about 30 minutes to drive to Lone Tree Regional Park from Victoria.  The park is open from sunrise to sunset.

After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC.

If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
