The Sooke area is nirvana for hikers, walkers and garden-variety amblers seeking underpopulated forest trails, oceanside strolls and rocky scrambles.
A generous array of regional and provincial parks dot an area that also includes the famed Galloping Goose, Juan de Fuca and West Coast trails.
Sort through the alternatives at the Visitor Centre. Staff here can provide recommendations, trail maps, brochures and contact info for the fresh-air authorities at the Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society.
Best and most popular hiking options in the area include:
Far and away the most scenic, relaxing and accessible oceanside stroll in the region. Park at the end of Whiffin Spit Road (three minutes west of Sooke's central stoplight at Otter Point Road) near the Sooke Harbour House, and spend a happy hour exploring the length of the narrow breakwater separating Sooke Habour from the open ocean.
