Lovely walk on the loop trail to Botany Bay and botanical beach. The trail is about 2-3 miles depending on where you stop along the way. Highly recommend doing the loop as you see various old trees and lush ferns and other plants and wild flowers. It’s like stepping into a scene of Jurassic park. The beaches at low tide are incredible. Many rocky outcroppings and lovely scenery abounds. You can see out to the pacific as well as the Olympic peninsula’s end…

We walked the stretch from China beach to Bear beach and back again. This is a absolutely stunning walk, with a mixture of woodland and coast paths. It had been raining the morning we went, and the path was a bit muddy in places but still passable. Not a route for the casual stroller either, the path can be a little hard going at times, with lots of up and down hill parts, but it’s definitely worth the work…

I’m a UVic international student coming from Italy. I strongly reccomend this trail to everyone who is looking for a bit of adventure! The landscape is awesome and there are lot of places where you easily can camp! Be careful, if you are not well-trained it would be hard to hike all the trail!
