“Hiking to Beauty”

Metaphorically (Hiking to your inner Beauty)

Come out and join us on a beautiful hike on Holland Creek trail Ladysmith

Choosing to hike the trail will cause you to have a feeling of enjoyment, an appreciation of beauty, it will physically challenge you and cause healthy competition. The real reward will be the contribution you will be making in the world by replacing the myths around the stigma of mental health (Fear and Shame) to understanding and compassion.


Exercise is one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts overall mood. You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to reap the benefits! Research indicates that modest amounts of exercise can make a difference. No matter your age or fitness level, you can learn to use exercise as a powerful tool to feel better.

This is a 3rd party event put on by a local group of hikers, who are dedicated to their family and friends, and human race. Proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association Mid Island Branch.


The hike is along a picturesque valley creek trail which runs through old growth trees covered with moss and ferns. There are many places to view the running water and the falls.  The hike is classed as moderate, some ups and down but not too much, it is 5.9 Km It will take about 1 ½ to 2 hrs to complete.

Beloved Pets: Due to many people going on the hike at the same time please leave your pet at home.

The trail can be hiked by young children 7 and up when accompanied by an adult.

As for people who want to participate that have little ones in a buggy.  The right side of the trail is buggy friendly. You would not go out with a group so when registering please call and let us know.  This way we can arrange an accommodation for you ahead of time. Thanks. - (250) 816-0062
