A beautiful walk for humans and dog lovers

The Dallas Road is an oceanside walk that begins at Ogden point in the James Bay area up to Fairfield and the Ross Bay Cemetery where several famous locals are buried including Emily Carr (artist), Billy Barker (founded gold at Barkerville) and Sir James Douglas (fur trader, governor of Vancouver Island, 1851-63).

With a comfortable pair of walking shoes the walk is suitable for all ages and abilities. There are lots of things to see and marvel in along the route as well as plenty of benches to sit and take in the view of the Olympic Mountains.

Starting at the Ogden Point end you can fortify yourself with a delicious ice cream, coffee or lunch from the Ogden Point Cafe which offers a family friendly range of meals and snacks with inside and exterior dining areas. www.tripadvisor.ca/Restaurant_Review-g154945-d785068-Reviews-...

There are several beaches along the route - although most of them are not sandy they offer great places to find unusual stones, driftwood and places to picnic.

From the Beacon Hill Park section of the walkway you can see the world's tallest totem pole at 127 feet 7 inches high.

Dog lovers and walkers will enjoy the off the leash park that offers dogs of all sizes and varieties and their owners an opportunity to meet and greet each other.

Whale watching boats, cargo ships, huge ocean liners, sail boats, wind surfers and paragliders all add to the interest of things to watch.

Tiny birds, large and small dogs, humans from 5 months to 95, pathways and trails, open spaces and quiet spots offer something for everyone - this walk is a must see and do when you visit Victoria BC on Vancouver Island.
