Explore the Galloping Goose Regional Trail

Something we know well and love to share is how to make the most of Victoria on a budget! In the coming weeks, we’ll be highlighting our staff’s top recommendations for doing just that!

Our first #oivicguide staff pic comes to us from Lana! She highly recommends to get some bikes and explore the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. Why? Well – it’s a 60-kilometre trail network that spans Victoria to Sooke and all the way up the Saanich Peninsula. It’s a stunning ride in and of itself, but it can also get you by bike to so many of the beautiful spots we’ll be highlighting in future posts.
