Brooks Point is located on south Pender Island and has incredible views from its rocky shoreline across Boundary Pass to the San Juan Islands in the United States. The beach area is a great place to explore and often seals, whales, and other animals can be spotted from the shoreline. The trail to the shoreline is a short, east walk and great place for families to enjoy.
From the trailhead at Gowland Point Road and Kloshe Road, walk past the park map and follow the wooden boardwalks through the lush vegetation. After only a few minutes, the trail reaches a junction next to some toilets. Go straight at the junction and follow the trail as it quickly leaves the forest. Walk to the far right and up onto the rocky Gowland Point where there are scenic coastal views of Drummond Bay and Boundary Pass.
Walk back in an eastward direction along the shoreline, following an unmarked route. There are a few access point to the rocky beach area which can be explored, particularly during low tide.
Continue eastward along the path as it gently climbs and you walk towards a small automated lighthouse at the eastern section of the park. The views are equally as good as you look across to the San Juan Islands while the waves gently brush against the shore.
To walk back from the lighthouse, follow a trail westward that pass through some grasslands. This trail weaves its way back into the forest and back to the junction next to the toilets. At the junction, go right and walk back along the boardwalks returning to the trailhead where you began your walk.
