The Mount Galiano Nature Conservancy Area is 200 acres (81 hectares) of forest, steep cliffs, and rocky peaks. The Nature preserve includes the highest point of land on Galiano Island. The land is a prime example of the rich diversity of flora and fauna that may be found on Galiano Island. The land was purchased in May 1991. The Galiano Club spearheaded a massive, whirlwind community-wide fundraising drive and through a lowering of the price by MacMillan Bloedel the land was acquired.
The trail is quite steep and hikers are encouraged to bring water. It takes about 50 minutes to hike to the viewpoint  from Georgeson Bay Road. The view from the top is Gulf Islands beauty at its best.
