This is a very nice seaside walk. It goes right past the Sidney pier and Becan park and past a few waterfront eateries. If you are on a bicycle you will have to walk it.

The Lochside trail links the ferry terminal to Victoria via a bike trail. Very well marked bike route that is a mixture of a dedicated path (gravel and paved), quiet side streets and country roads. Food and washrooms are aling the 30 km route.

This is a great location for a casual stroll or a bike ride along the waters edge, as the trail follows along through a lovely park like setting. Worth taking time to take a casual stroll to enjoy the sites & sounds!

This trail is very well cared for and a lovely path to cycle along through quiet areas, just far enough from the main highway to let you feel that you are in the country. We would highly recommend using this cycle path.

Have been planning on doing the Galloping Goose trail for. Many years. Finally planned it this year only to find that what we thought was the Galloping Goose is actually the Lochside Trail (the Goose runs from Victoria to Sooke). Regardless, this is an amazing...More
