MacLennan Trail

Archives

MacLennan Trail is a gravel multi-user trail in View Royal, B.C. It is located along the ridge of the berm that forms the noise barrier south of the Trans Canada Highway and west of Helmcken Road. The trail connects to the sidewalk near the bus stop at the intersection of Hwy1 and Helmcken Road and continues westward to View Royal Municipal Park. This four hundred and fifty meter long trail is landscaped with various spruce trees, broom bushes and a few Himalayan blackberry hedges. The path crosses over the salmon bearing Craigflower Creek before curving to connect with the circular pathway in View Royal Park. Parkcrest Park, Gull Road Green Space and Helmcken Park are nearby as are the Galloping Goose Trail, Trans Canada Trail, Victoria General Hospital Green Space and Chancellor Park.
