This was the first real family hike that I took my wife and two sons (8 and 11) on. It was challenging, but very achievable for them, and the scenery was amazing. One of the best features was the traffic, which was virtually non-existent. There were some blown down trees, but most had been cleared, and those which remained did not interfere with the route.

Hard to find entrance. Looks like someone’s driveway but if you keep walking up and past the houses (keep left) and actual driveways it leads into the park.

Great trail. Lots of up and downs. As another reviewer said, we needed to do some rock climbing into places and use our fingers to grab some ledges. Definitely not an easy trail, but the coast views are quite nice. In addition, heads up, by Fitbit had this trail at much longer than 9.5 Kms .

Took Sooke mountain Route back from sheilds. Trail markings aren't the best at times or I missed them. Took a bit of bush walking to connect to it. Easy hike, easier to loop around entering the lake from the east side along the washed out road clearings. Great views at the lake and on top of Sooke mountain.

Easy hike along the old road in. I missed the turn off to go over Sooke mountain on the way in. This route is a lot easier and well marked in comparison. Trail head starts down at the gates of Sooke mountain park so it is a bit longer. Sooke mountain is marked via flagging tape with little trail, which can be challenging to follow at times. North West side of lake has lots of the "main" trail under water but is easily passed by side cut trails. Happy I brought my gaters for crossing the creeks and wet brush. Could have lived without them but helped speed things up.

Trail was well marked. Didn’t see another human for the first 4 km. Lots of up and down and had to use hands on a few of the climbs. Had a great time - would recommend.

fun challenging day hike. takes about 2 hours in summer and 2.5 hours in winter when it turns into a river with lakes to wade through (yestderday!) and the salal is overgrown. Strava says 320m actual climbing. nice bench at the top to enjoy a snack and view over the strait. Could take 4 hours if you are a slow hiker, so leave plenty of time before dark, and use a gps app to not get lost, as there are a few crucial turns to make.

Lots of mushrooms to see and pretty dry.

We went to the starting point set out by clicking "directions" but it took us to the wrong spot. We ended up walking up through Camp Thunderbird and walking a trail we thought was correct. The signage was pretty much non existant, we started at 1pm, got completely lost and ended up in the trees until 9pm when we finally made it down to the correct starting point which was almost 7km away from where we parked. This needs to be fixed so other hikers don't make the same mistake, we're lucky we made it down, we almost had to call search and rescue, could have been a very bad situation.

Great hike out here. some areas are a bit overgrown but manageable. make lots of noise in overgrown areas as most of them are very patches. Some minor technical areas so if your relying on a typical moderate hike this might not be the one for you. along the cost mostly easy but in the inner trail can get challenging for some. Very well marked trails.

A great loop with amazing views of Iron Mine Bay. The trails are pretty wide for a good chunk of the hike, but get a bit narrow and a little overgrown when you hit Coastal Trail. That trail went a bit too close to the cliff’s edge for my taste, but, admittedly, the views were well worth it. Absolutely stunning. The hike back on Anderson Cove trail portion also had some nice vistas and elevation. I’d forgotten how far downhill I’d gone until I had to head back uphill about 85% of the way through the hike. Overall, inclined and declines weren’t too bad though. Really a great hike with a diversity of ups and downs, wide and narrow trails, rocky and soft, trees, ferns, shrubs, and coast. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Awesome trail. Rain Forrest at its best!

The descent and ascent to and from the cost are surprising easier than expected. The costal part though has a few quite rocky areas. You can take a detour to mount McGuire.
