Trails

Roe Islet Viewpoint is within the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and can be accessed via a short trail from South Otter Bay Road.

On the northwest side of the old Roe family house you’ll find a staircase, that acts as the trailhead for the 15 minute walk to the far end of this narrow islet. Several short trails branch off to views of Otter Bay and Hayashi Cove to the north and Ella Bay to the south. You’ll find a bench at the islet’s end so you can rest and enjoy the view west to Salt Spring Island, Prevost Island, and beyond. Bring along binoculars. Orcas pass by regularly from May-September.

The park is also home to the Pender Islands Museum, located in the restored Roe House, which offers a glimpse into the past of the Pender Islands.
