We finally decided to check out the Lantzville Foothills after talking about checking it out for so long, I love doing a hike that has spectacular views (it's such a reward!).

This area was a proposed 720 hectare housing development in 2004. A lack of sufficient water sources put it on hold. However, in Sept 2014 the city of Lantzville signed a term with developers to revive the Lantzville Foothills Estates project. We'll see what happens there.
In the meantime, if you haven't explored the old logging roads and gorgeous bluffs of the Lantzville Foothills, pick a clear sunny day and check out these views! Decent hiking shoes are a must, lots of loose rocks and gravel.
