Best views in town story neglected Saanich spot

Saanich's Christmas Hill is among the best little-known gems in region

Re: Victoria views among best things in city (News, June 17)

Why is Christmas Hill such a big secret? It wasn’t even mentioned in the article. All the approaches to it are very hard to find.

It took me more than 25 years of living in Victoria before I discovered this gem.

It’s only a short hike to the top, but one is rewarded with a fabulous view of Victoria and the surrounding area and there’s plenty of room to walk around up there.

Such a shame so few residents are aware of this beautiful spot so close to downtown Victoria.
