The Golden Hinde is located deep in the heart of Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island. It is the highest mountain on Vancouver Island. The approach is fairly invovled. You can start from a number of different locations, Westmin Mines at the end of Buttle Lake being the most popular. It starts off as a nice hike on an obvious trail, eventually the trail disappears though. There are a number of different routes on The Golden Hinde. For more information on them refer to Strathcona Park guide book, available in Campbell River and probably other places too. Its a great peak with lots of possibilities for long route on the North Face.
