Good for a little stroll, sight seeing and taking kids

Rated difficult but I would say between moderate and difficult. It’s just a long hike on consistent elevation to summit. Very quiet trail mostly. Watch out a black bear that spoiled once my plan. Bringing a bell or bear spray might be helpful. 365 degree panoramic view is a rewarding.

nice trail, well booted in

my go to trail for a quick afternoon hike. amazing view of the spoke basin, not to mention the only (of seven) remaining fire watch stations in the spoke mountains

Started on the Interior Trail which is basically a dirt road that meanders through the forest, initially going up in elevation and then cutting across a ridge. We then made our way down to the Coastal Trail which is more like a trail, gonna by up and down to little coves along the way.

Love the view and atmosphere.
Good Sunday walk, will come back again.

great day hike. Lots to explore off the main trail too

Loved this trail! A bit boring at first, but picks up towards the peak. We did it with a 7-year old, which was quite doable and fun.

Great scenic walk along the coast. Coast trail portion has some undulations and roots/rocks. As you make your way back inland it's more of a gravel path. Views along the coast trail are great. Water is super clear.

Varied terrain means an interesting and challenging hike!

Went here for the first time on BC Family Day Long Weekend...could have spent the whole weekend here! Gorgeous views, white sand and clear blue water. Definitely will be back!

Beautiful views!

Fabulous trail. Very well marked and maintained. Nice views. Quiet secluded areas. Loved it.

will definitely do this trail again.

Easy is relative. As others have noted, there is a decent amount of boulder climbing along this trail, but the views across the Street are beautiful. We made an afternoon out of it, did the forest section first then looped around to the beach area. My 9 and 12 year olds did great on this one, I would say it's doable for most ages. Would love to come back and hike the whole Coast Trail!

Such a great hike. Little of everything: Forrest, view and we looped back on the coastal trail which has some climbing rocks and great views. Agree with the previous post that if you take the coastal route it's not easy! But Two kids were engaged and loving it the whole way:)

Took the outer path to the summit for a nice challenging hike. Rewarded with breathtaking views from the fire station. Looped back down through the connector trail and Sooke Mountain Rd for an easy finish. Felt grateful for the beautiful nature and a rewarding hike.

Loved this hike! Beautiful views of surrounding area.

Beautiful hike with coastal shoreline views of the Olympic Mountain range as well as forest and meadow views on the way back. Took 2 hours with minimal stops. Shoreline had a few difficult spots of climbing up and down rocks but fine with good hiking shoes. Last part of hike from Beechey Head point back to Farm parking lot is easy forest hike.

Great Hike! Bring lots of water - it's a mountain so it's all up hill, and steep. Great views throughout the trail and from the top,you can see from Whiifin spit to the Sooke Basin and into Victoria.

Great hike! Clearly marked trails, lots of side trails, and dog friendly. Wish I brought the camelback.

Good hike. Alot of up of course being a Mtn! Nice views even part way up. Rocky, uneven footing which makes it interesting, and some muddy areas. Not busy although lot was pretty full, and great to bring your dog too. Enjoyed it.
