Individual Trail

North Island / Strathcona Provincial Park

105 min driving from Campbell River

The Golden Hinde Coords is an arduous mountain climb. It is the highest summit on Vancouver Island. It is roughly at the center of Strathcona Provincial Park between Burman River and Wolf river watersheds. You will need to commit a 4-7 day trip to ascend the mountain from any direction successfully. There is an engineered trail but a lot of it will be a rough boot path with steep bush, and potentially some snow and ice on the approach. There is also technical and sometimes loose basalt rock on the mountain. A vast amount of fantastic geology and fossils can potentially be seen in the limestone strata on the southern and eastern approaches. Sometimes found as contiguous areas such as the Limestone Cap and also sometimes embedded between layers of granite.

GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks may have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources. While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors.
