About Golden Hinde:

The highest point on Vancouver Island, the Golden Hinde, elevation 2,200 meters, stands almost in the center of Stathcona park to the west of Buttle Lake. The approach is fairly invovled. You can start from a number of different locations, Westmin Mines at the end of Buttle lake being the most popular. It starts off as a nice hike on an obvious trail, eventually the trail disappears though. There are a number of different routs on The Golden Hinde. For more information on them refer to Strathcona Park guide book, available in Campbell River and probably other places too. Its a great peak with lots of possibilities for long route on the North Face.
