Ascent Trip ReportA excellent day for a hike. Drove towards Sooke River Road. Headed up the road just nearly 5 ams. Parked on the side of the road just before the gate. I have uploaded a .gpx file to help you out with the trail.
The trail itself is mostly on a creek bed. This time of year the creek is dry. There are other ways of getting to the summit but this method is the most preferred. bring good hiking boots, the creek bed is all loose rock.
