14 km round trip trail to beautiful and quaint Grass lake, and then to the much bigger Shields lake. Trail starts off as an old gravel road of some kind and then branches off into 3 smaller trails after crossing the old sooke water pipe line. This trail is the middle trail which rises to 540 metres at the highest point. The trail gets progressively harder until you reach Grass lake where it opens up again into old 4x4 roads which will take you to Shields lake.

Directions:

Park on the right hand side of sooke river road directly before the gates to sooke potholes park. The trail starts off as a riverbed until you get to the galloping goose. Take the goose for about a km until you see a large trail on your right. This is the begining of the trail.

Downside This is not a trail for beginners. It is rough terrain and is a long hike up. Comment I love it up there I half a lot and I have hiked up there since I was 12 I am not 15 and just me and 3 other friends of mine hiked it. I live if there!

The road takes you to what locals call grassie lake. Take gps just in case. The old road goes through the old charters family homestead . The remains are still there halfway up the trail. To the lake takes about two hours. No one seemed to mind we were backpacking up there.
