From the parking lot at Burgoyne Bay you can take a path at the bottom of the lot to go to Daffodil Point, however there are paths to the south of the parking lot that head into a different set of trails.
The trails to the south have a lot of relatively flat routes, so if you want something a bit easier this is a great walk.
If you keep walking past the beach the grade gets a bit steeper, but not too difficult. If you’re up for a bit of a hike you can keep going as the park is quite large.
The paths are nice and wide with good footing, and there is lots of beautiful scenery wherever you walk.
On this trip to Burgoyne Bay we saw at least four sea otters out in the bay. From all the activity in the water it’s likely they were fishing.
The walk to Daffodil Point at Burgoyne Bay on Salt Spring Island is an easy to moderate hike. From the parking area the path extends on a gradual uphill slope with some steeper sections. About halfway the path descends until you reach the point. The path is wide and easy to navigate, with plenty to keep your interest along the way.
The trail leads out of the parking lot at Burgoyne Bay, along the water but tucked into the forest. During the summer it’s nice to have the shade from the trees as you walk out to the point. You can see the water through the trees, and periodically you’re treated with beautifully framed views of Burgoyne Bay and Sansum Narrows, the body of water separating Salt Spring Island and Vancouver Island.
Upon reaching Daffodil Point, there are a number of flat open areas to have a picnic, as well as a small beach for the kids to find crabs.
