At an imposing 554 feet (169 meters) in height, mighty George Hill on the Northern tip of Pender Island has a commanding view of the Southern Gulf Islands. The long, arduous ferry ride combined with the grueling 800 meters of trail repells all but the hardiest of adventurers who dare to transit these pirate infested waters.

Trail Description: This trail accesses George Hill park and terminates at the best vantage point on George Hill, North Pender Island. It is very well maintained and features a ridge walk, open slopes and good views. Note that the trail does not reach the highest point on the hill. The true summit is forested with little/no views and is an easy off-trail walk from the main George Hill Trail.
