The first section of the trail (14 or 15 k) near Victoria is pretty urban. It really starts to get nice about mile post 20K and then is a great ride up to Sooke Potholes Park at about milepost 50K

This trail is a treat for nature lovers! It begins in Esquimalt and winds through Saanich. At moments it is easy to forget that you're in the heart of a busy city. The trail is lined by trees and becomes quite rural when you get...More

The blackberries abound in August. Bring your pail and appetite. The trail is easy, paved for a while and then packed gravel.

For any level of cyclist this is an absolutely spectacular ride. Connecting with the Lochside trail from the ferry terminal and extending all the way to Sooke BC this is one of the great recreational rides anywhere. Much of it is paved and like a...More

What a a treasure! Miles (and kilometers!) of mostly easy, flat smooth trails from Victoria's harbor to the countryside, with parks and views along the way. If coming back to the city, a stop at Fol Epi bakery is highly recommended!

We'll be arriving from Port Angeles and would like to ride the seaside route from Victoria to Cadboro Bay. Are the bike lanes safe for this? Approximately what is the distance? Thank you very much.
