Galloping Goose Trail
The Galloping Goose Trail weaves its way through the communities of Victoria, Saanich, View Royal, Langford, Colwood, Metchosin, and finally to Sooke. The 55-kilometre trail moves through urban, rural and wilderness scenery, you can cycle, stroll, run, or even ride a horse through the rural sections.
The Galloping Goose Regional Trail was named after a gas-powered passenger car that carried mail and 30 passengers between Victoria and Sooke during the 1920s. It is part of the Trans Canada Trail, a national multi-use trail system linking trails from coast to coast.
The Galloping Goose connects with the Lochside Regional Trail, a 29-kilometre former railway line from Saanich to Sidney.
