Mount Finlayson is a 419 m (1,375 ft) mountain located on the border of Highlands and Langford, British Columbia, about 14 km northwest of Victoria. It is located within the Gowlland Range (part of the Vancouver Island Ranges). It is bordered by Goldstream Provincial Park and Gowlland Tod Provincial Park, and forms an imposing feature looming above Saanich Inlet for those travelling south on the Malahat Drive portion of Highway 1. A (sometimes steep) trail leading up to the summit is easily accessible from Goldstream Park. There are also trails that link up to the summit from Bear Mountain and these trail maps are available from the resort.
The views from the top of this mountain provide magnificent, 360° views of the Greater Victoria area. From the top you can also see the Strait of Juan de Fuca and an unobstructed view of the Olympic Mountain range, as well as Mount Baker.
