Located on South Pender Island, the Mount Norman area offers a sea-to-sky outdoor experience— there are plenty of trails to hike and the views are amazing. One book about hiking in the Gulf Islands says that this area is one of the most beautiful in the islands.
Depending on which route you take, you may travel as far as six kilometres. Mount Norman is the highest point on the Penders – its viewpoint offers a panoramic scene of the surrounding islands. You will pass Garry oak, arbutus, tall fir trees and salal as you travel to the top.
The shoreline below the mountain is rocky with views into Bedwell Harbour. Wildlife is abundant in the area.
