Head out into Nature

  • Goats Peak and Kalamoir Regional Parks offer up some nice hiking this time of year. These parks face south and the trails dry up faster than other hiking areas, making them a great spot for a late winter trek.
  • If you are down by the waterfront, why not see if you can spot any of our feathered friends? We have a handy Birding Map & Guide that you can download and take with you!
  • Are you a snow lover at heart? Head to Telemark Nordic Club for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Trail maps are available online or at the chalet and the club also rents out equipment.



Be sure to regularly check out our events calendar as new events are being added weekly. If you are out and about and taking photos, tag us with a @VisitWestside or #VisitWestside.

Thanks, and enjoy your February adventures!
