Elk Lake and Beaver Lake are 2 ‘conjoined’ lakes located just off the Pat Bay Hwy. in Saanich. (See map below)
This is one of my favorite walks. You can walk completely around the 2 lakes which is about 10km and will take approximately 2 hours. Of course you can walk as much or as little of that as you want. This is a fairly flat trail, some is wheelchair accessable – but there are exposed roots and rocks in places that make it a bit challenging. There are a few benches along the trail at access points to the lake. Trails are easy to find and well-marked.
