We loved the Bluffs and found it to be a magical place to just hang out. The views are incredible and the trails are worth exploring. Galiano is amazing!

It was so nice to drive up there, we took a turn on the spur of the moment and it lead us to the top of Bluffs Park.

Loved the views of the harbor. Also hiked down to the Japanese Charcoal Pitkiln which was a beautiful but steep climb down and back. Found out we could have drove to it but wouldn't have missed that beautiful hike.

Stunning views! Great spot for a walk and picnic! Not a bad/tough drive to get to. Make sure to do this if your visiting for the weekend!

Incredible view along this trail up to the Bluffs you could watch the fairies/ ships go through active pass. You see why it's earned its name.

The road is Rough at best BUT once you get all the way UP there it's worth it! Take it Slowly with a vehicle (yes, even if you have 4 wheel drive) Bring a lunch and enjoy the most spectacular view!

The road getting to Bluffs Park is rough and narrow, but since the conditions were right and the weather was sunny we drove down the narrow gravel road into the parking lot. We just about passed it, but there is a small sign. Wow! What...More

Wouldn't suggest this road in a nice sedan or under-powered vehicle - lots of uneven surfaces, rutting, twists and turns. But the view of Active Pass once you make it up is nothing short of spectacular.

Bluffs park is a short drive (5-10 minutes) from the Sturdies Bay ferry terminal, and well worth a visit. The last little bit of road up is unpaved, but easily conquered by my Mazda 3; once you get up there, park in the small but...More

Beautiful sceneries, fresh air, shade from the sun, and all these made this short one-hour hike very enjoyable.
