“Easy access to awesome views and trails”
Review of Alyard Farm

Reviewed 6 August 2016

East Sooke Park offers a great introduction to what a west coast trail is all about. Quick access to an interesting petroglyph and awesome views of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympics. To complete the entire trail along the coast (Coast Trail) leave a vehicle at either end and enjoy with some good breaks a 7 hour one way hike. Recommend a solid hiking shoe as sections are steep and some 3 point maneuvering is required . . . all safe and doable.

East Sooke Park is a wonderful place to visit to be near the ocean and do some hiking. We did both. There are many trails some are easy and others are more difficult. You can chose.

Lovley beach and trails, beautiful trees along the rugged coastline. Trail along the coastline or go inland and up a small mountain. See the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island along the coast trail. Great day hikes year round

Nothing fancy. Large parking lot and a wee hike through a meadow and fruit trees to the edge of the land, and then a little bit of a challenging walk (for those with mobility issues- nothing for the able-bodied) down to the beach. Shallow, cold water, popular with kids and dogs.

What a beautiful little beach! Great picnic areas along the trails too. Unfortunately it's described as accessible which it certainly is not. Unless you don't mind sitting in a field and not going to the beautiful beach. The CRD really* needs to do some work around the trails to the beach head. Fun for an afternoon's outing
