A refreshing and easy stroll through a Douglas-fir and cedar forest is along Canoe Cove Road. This narrow road leads to the Canoe Cove Marina with a cafe, chandlery, yacht sales, gallery and other shops. The roadside trail also leads to The Stone House Pub and Restaurant. Its takes about ten minutes from the Swartz Bay ferry terminal, if you leave and reenter from the bicyclist access trail. The cafe has excellent meals that are provided in a beautiful location. Its recommended over ferry food if you have a sailing wait. The gardens at the Stone House are also a great place to find a take a stroll. The property is pet and children friendly and the food is great.
You can get to the roadside trail by traveling north on Pat Bay Highway (#17). Before you reach ferry terminal follow the signs that lead to Lands End Road. Continue straight after the traffic light and stay on Dolphin Road. Canoe Cove Road is the first right. There is limited roadside parking.
