Mount Douglas (SENĆOŦEN: pq̕áls) is a prominent, 260 m (853 ft) hill in the Greater Victoria municipality of Saanich, British Columbia. It is named for the second governor of the Colony of Vancouver Island, Sir James Douglas, and is affectionately known locally as “Mount Doug.” The hill and the surrounding area are protected by a 182 ha (450 acres) municipal park. It also lends its name to a high school, road, neighbourhood, and several businesses. Its many trails, mature second growth forest, striking vistas of the city, and nearby beach make the area a popular destination.
