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.
