A coast trail in the East Sooke Regional Park. This trail is surprisingly not well-known under the shadow of the famous West Coast Trail, but the rugged trail is a beautiful wilderness. Stunning coastal views with the Olympic Mountains (USA) on the horizon. Jumping fish and fishermen on boats. On the way back, the dense rainforest with gigantic trees.
Finished with a nice lunch at the Becher Bay Marina where hobby fishermen were bringing their catch home with pride.
An afternoon 3-hour hike, starting from Aylard Farm Entrance to Beechey Head (a great viewpoint). Back to Aylard through the forest. The entire Coast Trail is a 10km rough, uneven and winding trail (6-8h).
