Galloping Goose Trail access to Birds of a Feather B&B

BOOK DIRECT - Best Price

Galloping Goose Trail Aldeane Royal Roads University

Part of the Trans Canada Trail which traverses Canada, the Galloping Goose and Peninsula Trails form one of the most picturesque trail systems in Canada. Built upon the abandoned rail beds and trestles of that railway legacy, the Galloping Goose and Peninsula Trails connect our transportation past with our transportation future. You can travel for nearly 60 kilometers on the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. You can cycle, walk, or ride a horse along this former rail line past some of B.C.’s finest scenery.

Birds of a Feather B&B is easily accessible from the Galloping Goose Trail which makes it ideal for visitors traveling along the Goose. Loaner bicycles are available to our B&B guests. Coastal Cycles, also along the Galloping Goose trail just minutes from here also rent bicylces.

There are 2 exit points in Colwood forn easy access to Birds of a Feather B&B.

Option #1 - Ocean Blvd. Route (Scenic forest - ocean - one steep hill)

  • when the Goose comes out at Sooke Rd. across the street from Dennys go left to the intersection / traffic lights at Sooke Rd / Wale Rd. / Ocean Blvd. and follow Ocean Blvd.
  • 150 meters after getting on to Ocean Blvd. stay left to continue along Ocean Blvd. through the forest past Fort Rodd Hill & Fisgard Lighthouse, then over the bridge
  • still on Ocean Blvd. with the Esquimalt Lagoon to your right and the ocean to your left continue for 2 km until you reach Lagoon Rd where you'll turn right
