The Galloping Goose and Lochside Trail is an extensive biking, running and walking system that runs up and down the Sanich peninsula and out to Sooke. Fun way to explore the area

From asphalt to rainforest to canyon... the Goose knows every landscape on Southern Vancouver Island. It is excellent for walking or biking. Closest access from A Little Something is a 15 minutes drive. Head towards Victoria on Sooke Road - go through Sooke and cross over the Sooke River bridge…

“The hike to Upper Goldstream Falls starts near the campsite gatehouse and follows a lush, forested trail along the Goldstream River to the waterfall. The hike is popular amongst campers due to it being right next to the campsite, but it can also be done as a day-hike by parking near the gatehouse or just outside the campsite area. While the trail is fairly easy with minimal election change, there is a long set of stairs to walk down into the canyon where the waterfall is. While the stairs don't seem difficult, keep in mind that you do have to walk back up them to return to the trail after visiting the waterfall. From the gatehouse, walk to the start of the trail just to the left and into the forest. The trail veers right and follows a nice, dirt path as you get occasional glimpses of the river to the left. While the campsite is only meters away to the right, it doesn’t seem that way as the forest vegetation is thick and very green from the river’s moisture that keeps it lush. When you reach a junction, go left and continue along the forest trail. The trail eventually reaches the stairs to the left that go down towards the waterfall. Begin walking down the stairs and into the canyon as the waterfall comes into view. Walk right down to the small, rocky beach area and up onto the jagged rock on the other side for a close view. During the warm months, the pool below the falls is a popular area to swim bu the water is cold during the fall, winter, and spring seasons.”
