Parksville and Errington (25 min north of Nanaimo) occupy a flat stretch of land between the ocean and the mountains. Right in the middle of this plain is Little Mountain, an aptly named mound of rock towering over the landscape. It has beautiful oceanview homes, and you can drive to a tower at the top, where there is a gorgeous mountainside view atop a series of dangerous cliffs.
Be extremely careful, as the cliffs appear very suddenly, without warning, and the ground can be slippery - don't go exploring here in the dark!

Where to Park
Please be mindful of the local residents and their animals as you climb the hill and especially as you approach the difficult one-lane portion near the top.
