    Super cool place to visit. Definitely go if you're in the area. Watch out for the dog poop. Not bad for sea glass hunting either.

    To comment* on Toms review, this park is dog friendly and a place where dogs can be off leash. Off leash dogs and a trail created for walking creates a hazard for cyclists. You can't have everything cyclists.

    My first time here.I noticed many people birding while we walked to the point.I did see more dogs off leash and not that birds.When we were leaving I noticed a sign No bicycles and a few people locking theirs up and walking.I asked why no bikes and was told the bikes scared away the birds.When I committed about the dogs off leash and scarring away more birds than bikes. They had no explanation and didn't know.I do dabble in watching and riding a bike. My bike has less impact to the environment than any dog for a birding.

    A must see when in Sooke. Take a long walk on this open trail & breathe in the fresh ocean air. There is plenty of driftwood for the taking if your crafty. Beautiful view of the ocean. There is limited parking (free) and watch your step as some dog lovers do not stoop and scoop.
