What you'll do

We will be hiking up part of Mt. Collins , accessing the trail from our property. We will meet at my home and begin the 1.5 hour round trip hike up to a beautiful lookout of Howe Sound. On cloudy and rainy days this view may be obstructed, but the hike is green and lush year round. Dogs are welcome to come if on leash. There are plenty of deer on island and we may just spot some, so make sure to bring a camera to capture the beauty of Bowen! This is an established trail but used mainly by local residents so there tends to be more debris than on more frequently used trails. We will hike at a leisurely pace unless the whole group is keen to make it more of a workout. This is an easy to moderate hike with some frequent short but steep inclines. Kids seem to love this hike, but it may be too steep for the smaller ones! They usually end up hitching a ride on one of us adults. If you don't see availability that works for you here, feel free to reach out and inquire about a time that works for you and your travel plans.

Where you'll be

You will be visiting our little slice of paradise where we will pass chickens, ducks and goats on our way up to the trail! Experience a part of Bowen that is more tucked away where most days it is only you and forest. Weather permitting, we will be rewarded with a beautiful lookout towards Howe Sound, Gambier Island and the Sunshine Coast.
