Sooke Hills Wandering - Charters, Ramparts, Sooke Mt. & Shields Lake (B1)

Originally published at:

Rain or shine, we will meet at Charters River parking area, a right turn off Sooke Road (2895B Sooke River Rd) at 9 AM. Our wanderings will take us up the Charters River, over to the Ramparts, Sooke Mountain and to Shields Lake and back. If you are into cold water therapy/dipping, a swim could break out at Shields Lake! There may be sections of very light, easy bushwacking. As this is a full day hike, best not to plan for any late afternoon engagements or dinner plans!

Please bring raingear, appropriate warm layers, water, lunch/snacks, sturdy hiking boots, and any other necessary gear (10 essentials), along with a spirit of fun!

No dogs please, but all ACCVI members welcome. Suitable for new members.

Co-Led by Roger and Peggy Taylor. To sign up please email
