East Sooke Regional Park Vancouver Island, BC May 2020

Looking towards Creyke Point

Beautiful May 2020 – Smack bang in the middle of Covid 19. Restrictions had been lifted to include more people into your bubble. Outdoor activities are a must for our mental health and normality … ( they are for me)

Pikes Road Entrance
Sword Ferns

We dropped a vehicle at our finish point ( Alyard Farms) and drove to Pikes Road for the start of the Point to Point Coast Trail. This trail is 13km in distance and the first km was a beautiful warm up run through the forest of green and ferns.

Pikes Point
Beauty of the Juan De Fuca Strait

Coast trail was marked with yellow plates, and was easy to follow ( we did miss one) though it was quick to get back on trail. Some scrambling along cliffs edges made for a fun adventure.

Flowering Succulents
Looking back from where we had started
Wild Women in the Wild Flowers

As it was the end of May the Wildflowers were abundant. I think we had around 100 stops to take photographs as the trail is so scenic.

Spring growth on the pine
Cabin Point

Time for a break at the Trap Shack, which was used in the past by fishermen. It’s a neat place with history, times are sure different now in the fishing industry.

Lichen & Arbutus
Amazing Strait of Juan De Fuca
Taking time to swing
Climbing up through the forests

Overall elevation of the Coast to Coast trail is 563m , lots of ups and downs . Mainly coastal views, though you do spend some time among the beautiful trees in the forest.

Always an Adventure

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the 5 hours it took to reach our destination of Alyard Farm – Creyke Point, and I hope you have too. Thanks for looking!
