Pender Hill, Pender Harbour
(Sechelt, BC, Canada)
Pender Hill View
Best view in the Pender Harbour area. Steep hike but only 20-30 minutes, well worth the effort. Take a picnic for the view at the top, you'll want to spend some time there.
To get there:
From Highway 101, turn onto Garden Bay Road. Partway around Garden Bay Lake, watch for and take the road for Irvings Landing. This takes you past Mixal Lake and Hotel Lake. Turn right onto Lee Road. Stay on the road and don't get distracted with the beautiful ocean view! Lee Road swings past Lee Bay and heads uphill and bends right. Where a cul-de-sac road connects with Lee Road from the right, at the junction look for a gravel road and small parking lot thru the brush. Park here and take the path opposite the parking area to head up Pender Hill. There is only one main trail - you haven't reached the top until you are on the rock bluff that overlooks Pender Harbour and views south and west.
Better views than Mount Daniel, less time too for those just looking for a short quick hike.
