The Galloping Goose Regional Trail is a picturesque multi–use trail, formerly a railway line, that moves through urban, rural, and wilderness scenery on its 55 kilometre journey from Victoria to Sooke. You can cycle, stroll, run, or even ride a horse through the rural sections. Whether you're community to work, meandering on a weekend afternoon or pacing yourself from Sidney to Sooke, the trail is yours to enjoy and protect. The Galloping Goose was originally a freight railway line built during the First World War. It is part of the Trans Canada Trail, a national multi-use trail system linking trails from coast to coast. "The Goose" intersects with the Lochside Regional Trail, a 29 kilometre former railway line from Saanich to Sidney. The CRD has rated the Galloping Goose Regional Trail as Accessible (paved sections) to Easy.
