Want a run near Victoria International Airport? Well, Victoria has you covered. There’s a multi-use path that basically follows the perimeter of the airport for 9 km. At the west end, there are some great views of Patricia Bay. The path also connects to a trail alongside Lochside Dr. and the Lochside Regional Trail. Our thanks to Joylin Nodwell for this route suggestion!
The mapped route starts at the airport parking lot, but you can start anywhere. Follow the paved multi-use path paralleling the airport perimeter road. At the northwest end is Patricia Bay Park and nice water views.
Add-Ons: The path connects with Lochside Dr., which is a pleasant residential road at its northern end with few cars. Access Lochside Dr. from Willingdon Rd. to Canora Rd. or off Ocean Ave (see overview map). There’s a paved bike path alongside. Head south, eventually connecting with the Lochside Regional Trail after ~13 km.
STAY: Hotels just east of Highway 17 off Beacon Ave. in Sidney provide good access to the trail.
