Description

The Capital Regional District (CRD) has completed restoration of the Todd Creek Trestle along the Galloping Goose Regional Trail near Sooke Potholes Regional Park. The trestle is now open to the public for use.

CRD staff assessed repair options with engineers and determined restoring the trestle as the best approach to maintain its historical value.

The Todd Creek trestle was built in 1917 as part of the Canadian National Railway. It was decommissioned as a rail line in 1984. It offers expansive forest and river views and is recognized as an attraction along the trail.
