Coal Point Lane Green Space

Coal Point Lane Green Space provides access to the point of land that marks the southern side of Deep Cove. The short trail includes a seven step staircase that leads to a rustic wooden bench. The rocky shoreline is not easily accessed due to the height off the water and the proximity of the nearby homes. This area may be windier than some of the other beach access areas even with the protection of the willows and fir trees. The view is across the waters of Deep Cove toward Satellite Channel and Salt Spring Island. This viewpoint of the Salish Sea make this a lovely place to include in your walk around the neighborhood of Deep Cove in North Saanich.
