Split Rock Lookout

Split Rock Lookout

Malahat Summit, Mill Bay, Victoria, British Columbia

Split Rock Lookout is an incredible viewpoint located at the Malahat Summit.

'The Malahat' is the term commonly applied to the Malahat Drive, a 25 km (15.5 mi) portion of the Trans Canada Highway 1 running along the west side of Saanich Inlet and to the region surrounding it.

Its name comes from the Malahat First Nation, whose ancestors used the caves for spiritual enhancement. The Malahat Drive climbs to a summit of 356 m (1,156 ft), and the mountain is considered one of the most sacred sites on southern Vancouver Island.

The area is home to Goldstream Provincial Park and Spectacle Lake Provincial Park.
