As you return to the Trail at Ogden Point, you’ll notice a colourful mural on the nearby breakwater. The artwork is called Na ‘Tsa Maht, or the Unity Wall Mural, and uses cultural motifs of the Coast Salish Nations to depict the importance of interactions between Indigenous communities and settlers. The mural was painted by teams of six youth, who were mentored by local Indigenous artists. The mural is a striking addition to Victoria’s cityscape, which is on the traditional territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.
Continue along the Trail on Dallas Road to Fisherman’s Wharf Park, and stop for a quick snack and refreshments for your furry friend. If you’re need something a little more filling, visit Barb’s Fish and Chips, a dog-friendly and unpretentious restaurant serving the freshest catch of the day.
Keep walking to Laurel Point, where you will find yourself on David Foster Way. Named after the music producer and TCT Champion who helped fund it, this Trail section offers wonderful views of Victoria’s historic marina.
Once you reach the facade of the Fairmont Empress Hotel, take a moment to appreciate how far you and your dog have walked. End your journey here, and reward your canine companion with a post-Trail treat!
