^I think that RussC is referring to Mt Doug when saying that the trails are bad.
Yes, I am referring to Mt Doug when I said the trails were a mess. The trail below the parking lot at the top is really bad. It follows the fall line and because of this has caused extensive water and erosion damage to the hill.
The trails out at Mt Work Hartland are maintained every month by volunteers of the South Island Mt Bike Society. It has taken quite a few years to get them to the condition they are in now... which is one whereby they are sustainable and can stand up to the public traffic they see.
I'd like to see the same effort put into the trails at Mt Doug.

There is a good trail map of Mt Douglas at http://saanich.ca/resident/parks/pdfs/mountdoug.pdf

Wait a minute, this says that Mt. Doug was logged, and was also formerly known as Cedar Hill.

Anyone know why the road is named Churchill Drive (I'm guessing after Winston, but not sure why/when named)?
In 1942, Emily Carr claimed to have had a vision while visiting a friend in Vancouver. The vision inspired her to return immediately to Mount Douglas Park where she felt the "forest had something to tell her". There, for a few weeks in August of that year, she painted her last works which were both mystical and enchanting.
Hmmm, that Carr chick was sure wierd.

As much as I think driving up Mount Doug is cool when I'm too lazy to climb it, I think they should close the road.
Blasphemy. Obesity is the number one disease, and plans to stay #1 for some time. As long as that's the case, we need powered vehicles to get us to the top.
We also need a road up to the top of Mt. Finlayson.
We could also use a cable-car going from the top of Mt. Doug to the top of Mt. Tolmie. It could have a station at University Heights Mall, to get off to shop or watch a movie. Gondola Station would be a cool name for a band.

So would Flight Path Hazard.

Haha just kidding (except for the part about my dad's bestfriend), I like it the way it is even with the drive up there, cause you still have to book it to the top.
