Trail
“Sooke Potholes Provincial Park is a popular destination along the Sooke River with a unique rock formation that was formed from the last ice-age millions of years ago. The park area has several trails along the river, close to the shoreline and others that are high above the rock pools. There isn't a single route to take like other hiking trails but there are several short trails that lead to viewpoints and to the river areas. Parking in either lot #1 or #2 are both equally good as you will need to walk between both lots and there will be some uphill and downhill sections but you will also need to return to your vehicle up the same route you walked down, for example. Some of the trails can be steep, including some rock stairs down to a viewpoint that are very steep. Also, caution should be used when walking out onto any rocks near the river as the rocks are often slippery from being a wet and the risk of falling and injury yourself is always possible. For this description, we start from parking lot #2, the higher of the two parking lots. Walk to the area of the parking lot where you drove in and follow the gravel path next to the road as it heads downhill. Keep following the path until it meets a junction and go right down the steep hill. Near the bottom, the trail turns into rock stairs that are very steep as you make your way to the bottom to see he view of the water cascading into the canyon below. After seeing the view, walk back up the stairs and the steep trail to the junction and this time go right, following the trail to a clearing by a Visitor Centre where there are additional views into the canyon. From this point, you can decide whether to walk down towards parking lot #1, where some trails access the river area, or return to parking lot #2. If you decide to walk down to parking lot #1, there are only partial trails to get there and you will have to walk on the side of a section of road. To do so, follow the trail on the far end of the visitor centre as it heads downhill but ends at the road. Walk down the side road, being careful to stay close to the side and avoid the vehicles driving through. Watch for a trail to the right and walk down the rock steps, continuing as it heads down into the forest. ”

“Take the hike from the parking lot through the trees and watch as it opens up to views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca from the Dungeness Spit. If you have all day and plenty of energy you can hike the 10.2 mile round trip out to the Dungeness Lighthouse!”

“he Galloping Goose Regional Trail is a 55-kilometre (34 mi) rail trail between Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and the ghost town of Leechtown, north of Sooke, where it meets the old Sooke Flowline. The trail forms part of the Trans-Canada Trail, and intersects the Lochside Regional Trail. It is maintained by the Capital Regional District (CRD). The trail is a popular route both for commuting and recreation, including within urban areas of Victoria (Vic West and Burnside-Gorge). It is frequented by people walking, running, cycling, skateboarding and (in places) riding horses. It connects up with many other trails and parks in the area.”

“One of our favorite hikes and we highly recommend. Beautiful views of Cape Flattery, the lighthouse, Pacific Ocean, Strait of Juan de Fuca with the Canadian Mountains across the way. The hike is about 1.5 miles roundtrip with 200' gain is the furthest northwest tip of the contiguous United State, Cape Flattery provides a dramatic backdrop to a surprisingly accessible hike. It's managed by the Makah Tribe, who provide permits for parking here at Washburn's General Store, The Makah Museum, and many other locations in Neah Bay. As you drive through on the way to the trailhead, be sure to purchase yours -- they're good for the year, and you can also use it for Shi Shi Beach. From the trailhead, depart down a wide, graveled trail into open forest. Heading gently downhill, the trail narrows down to boardwalk, keeping hikers out of the worst of the mud before transitioning to rooty tread. Signs along the way encourage you to stay on the trail; please honor these. This area sees enough traffic that a spur trail can quickly impact the area in a bad way. Preserve your future visits here by remaining on trail during this visit. Eventually, the trail returns to boardwalk, carrying you over a boggy sections as the wind intensifies. You're approaching the point. Three turnoffs exist that allow you to see views from all sides of the point. The first branches off to the left, to a viewing platform that allows you to peer down the sheer south side of the point. The second, a few hundred feet further down the trail, is a two-layered affair, where you can enjoy an expansive view north from the upper deck, and a more intimate view of the sea caves below from the lower layer. The third and last is, appropriately, the piece-de-resistance: a viewing platform accessed via a very steep but short stepladder. Straight ahead is Tatoosh Island. A lonely lighthouse sits on the island, which is constantly buffeted by waves and wind. To the north, it's the rocks of Cape Flattery reef, while to the south it's Kessiso Rocks. Birds wing in the breeze, and the seas around here teem with life. The constant pounding surf and the meeting of water with land here provides an ideal place for animals of all sorts to feed. As you gaze out on the Pacific, look for seagulls, cormorants, shorebirds of many other sorts, and marine animals like whales or otters playing in the surf. ”
