There have been issues over the years with a home owner nearby and climbers walking through their land near the power lines. Recently a climber had their tires slashed. Be aware.
Although they are a bit of a drive from Victoria, the Duncan boulders are well worth the trip. I would advice you to contacting someone who has been there before if you want to go. The trail can be quite tricky to navigate and some of the boulders are a bit hidden off the main trail.
Step 1. Getting to the trailhead
Getting to the trailhead can be a little tricky. Once you make it to Duncan take a right at the first lights you hit in town. There should be a Chevron on the corner I believe. Follow this road for quite some time always keeping to the left. After about 7 minutes you should hit Genoa Bay road. Take a right onto it. Follow Genoa Bay road past the Marina and keep beyond the inlet. After the inlet ends the road should do a couple winds and then start up a hill. You will want to park about halfway up this gradually sloping hill, on the left hand side.
Step 2. Getting to the boulders
Once parked at the side of the road look for a faint trail leading off into the bush. Head over the ditch and up the other side and through a few bushes. You should come to a bit of a clearing and will see the trails continues up the hill a bit to your left. On the way up the trail there will be a couple clearings. Try to keep to the middle of the clearings. There are a couple trails going off to the sides of them, but these will just get you lost. The hike takes about half and hour if you go at a pretty good pace.
