The Ultimate Natural High
Welcome to nature at its most majestic. The views from the lookout—250m above sea level—are spectacular. However, this adventure is for all the senses. Enjoy the scents, sounds, and textures of the coastal forest.
Malahat Skywalk Features
BREATHE IN THE BEAUTY
Immerse yourself in pristine nature: a steep, forested mountain, high above the Salish Sea. Previously, only agile explorers could enjoy such experiences of the wild. Now, our TreeWalk and Spiral Tower make this environment easily accessible, even for strollers and wheelchairs.
SEE AS BIRDS DO
Ascend the spiral ramp to peak adventure. At 250 m above sea level, the tower provides sweeping views of Mt. Baker, Finlayson Arm, the Saanich Peninsula, and islands in two countries. Explore the West Coast from a whole new perspective and then choose your descent with a return walk down the ramp or take the fast route on our Spiral Slide.
WALK LIKE GIANTS
Begin your adventure on this gently inclined walkway 20 m above ground. Children walk with the stature of giants, amongst the treetops of this mature forest. Learn about the ecosystem along the way. Spot wild animals in the woods. Watch closely and you might spot a Sasquatch.
SMELL THE ARBUTUS TREES
The arbutus, or Pacific madrone, appears wonderfully exotic with its smooth chartreuse wood covered by reddish, papery bark. It grows on rocky coastlines and, in spring, bears white flowers that smell like honey. In autumn, red berries help feed many of the local birds and wildlife.
