One of the steep hills on Saltspring Island, known for its unique geology (a mix of granite and aggregate rocks). Erskine is a steep hike from the shoreline road and is accessible by a marked trail. Stunning views of the sea and other islands make it a popular destination. The trail winds through forest that contains some arbutus trees and old Douglas firs. Summit is open and the west-facing aspect of the peak has formidable cliffs (not a hike from that side).
