Description

The CRD is restoring the Todd Creek Trestle along the Galloping Goose Regional Trail near Sooke Potholes Regional Park. It will be closed for 2018 while we rehabilitate it.

The Galloping Goose can be accessed via Sooke Potholes Regional Park or through a pedestrian and equestrian bypass.

  • When travelling towards the Sooke Potholes and Kapoor Regional Parks from Victoria, the Galloping Goose can be accessed north of the trestle via Sooke Potholes parking lot 2.
  • When travelling south from Sooke Potholes Regional Park, the Galloping Goose can be accessed south of the trestle from the Galloping Goose parking lot on Sooke River Road.
  • A pedestrian and equestrian bypass (0.9 km) for the trestle is also available close to the Todd Creek Trestle. Users are advised that the bypass has steep slopes and uneven surfaces in sections.
  • Sections of the bypass trail will be closed for short periods intermittently during construction.

CRD staff assessed repair options with engineers and determined restoring the trestle is the most cost-efficient and beneficial solution.

This 4-story wooden trestle is 100 years-old. It is considered a valuable asset to the regional trails system and to the visitor experience. Rehabilitation work will add an additional 35-50 year life span to the structure.
