The Galloping Goose Trail is named after the passenger train #15813 that ran twice a day from Sooke to Victoria from 1922-1931. The trail is popular and it makes for a great 2-3 day trip. There are many BBs and campgrounds along the route to make the ride a multi-day event.
Distance: 55km one way
Rating: Easy, flat hardpacked trail
Thanks to reader Ivan for sharing his photos and day on the trail. He says: “Just did the GG trail last Sat. Ride is excellent.Started about 10:30am and finished at the Pub at 1:30pm.( I am 69yrs and the ride was OK for me.) It was 40 Km from Best Western Hotel on Quebec St Victoria to Sooke on the HWY where the rail bed heads north to Leechtown. There is a restaurant /Pub right there on the to end your trip if you wish to be picked up.”
