The Galloping Goose Trail was amazing! We rode it from Victoria to Sooke, almost 30 miles of paved and crushed gravel trail. There were a few places where it was obvious a trestle had been removed because it was an 18 percent drop and immediate climb out the other side. That was a little challenging fully loaded! But other than crossing roads, we never had to worry about traffic. We stayed at the Sooke River Campground which was nothing spectacular but walking distance from town.

Unfortunately my riding partner had saddle sore issues and we had to take an extra rest day at Sooke, so we turned around and headed back to Victoria to catch Amtrak in Seattle. The Goldstream Provincial Park was a gorgeous campground close enough to Victoria to get up early and catch the ferry back to Port Angeles.

Next summer we plan to do the full loop...
