The road to get there has plenty of curves watch the posted speed limit. Also there is a one lane bridge where one side of traffic has the right of way.

Starting with the lovely gentlemen manning the info booth in the parking lot this is a hikers paradise! Don't take my word for it, just go there, load up your daypack and trek away. WOW! All sorts of terrain from woods paths to rock scrambling. The views are sublime. Loved it.

This little gem of a trail offers magnificent shoreline views at almost every turn. The terrain can sometimes be challenging due to the rocks underfoot. But you can make the journey as long as you want (we only did about 3.5 miles round-trip) and still have a rewarding time.

This is part of East Sooke Regional Park, which the VERY helpful people at Sooke Visitors Centre turned me onto. Please see my review of East Sooke Regional Park for more info.

On a beautiful day this park is stunning. The ocean walks and views followed by the artifacts makes for a beautiful day. Out of the way so pack all you need for the whole day.

Many well maintained hiking trails, great West Coast experience. I hike in the park 3 days a week and never get tired of the forest, views and trails.

Good example of an old farm on the island. Great access to the beach and best place to finish the hike.

It's a great place, I wish I had visited it sooner. I've lived here for several years but only went out of the way to find it two years ago. If you want an easy day, just walk through the meadow and hang out at the nearby little beach. If you want a good hike there's rough and beautiful trails... More

Went our last day in Sooke & so glad we didn't miss it! It was so peaceful, we sat for an hour just watching the ocean until the sun started to set. I was lovely.

Gorgeous white sand, very quiet, great for kids, not a terribly far drive. Perfect place to picnic and relax on the beach!
