The East Sooke Regional Park and Aylard Farm offers a quiet, lovely area to hike and enjoy the coast and viewscapes of the waters and shores. This park is undeveloped - bring your snacks and supplies.

What a lovely park with great & challenging walking paths. Pure beauty overlooking the water. Unspoiled shorelines.

Lovely area to escape the tourist crowds. Nothing but the wind, the waves and bird song. Bit spooky in some of the wooded trails, imagine lots of wildife comes out at dusk but we just saw deer and some black bear fur. A great afternoon

This park has many entry points. We went to Aylard farm/Beechy Head on the coastline. Very short walk to a beautiful sandy beach. We visited on a slighty wet Sunday afternoon in september and had the whole place to ourself. So peacefull.

We were lucky enough to spot a pod of orcas whilst sat on a rock at the beach! Beautiful walk, lovely scenery, helpful staff at the free car park.

Hiking like you won't find anywhere else. Beautifully forested trails that are right along the coast of the Pacific, with easy access to the beach. Beautiful views throughout. Well-marked trails. Bathroom facilities available at the trailhead parking.
