Hiking to Yeo Point on Salt Spring Island
Yeo Point is a terrific hike in Ruckle Provincial Park on Salt Spring Island. The trail meanders through lush, old-growth forest of hemlock and cedar. The trail travels by small ponds and a quartz field before ending at a beautiful beach near Yeo Point. Yeo Point itself is a spectacular rocky outcrop with arbutus trees overlooking the ocean.
If you’re visiting Salt Spring Island, this is a great hike to add to your list of things to do.
