NTS Map:92B5. A short (1.5 km) steep hike that works its way 240 meters up to Mount Wells summit. The trail has loose dirt in parts in dry weather, mud when raining. Lots of hiking over rock. Beautiful stands of Hairy Manzanita. Not busy park. View of sooke, Olympic mountains, langford and Victoria, mill hill, Mount Finlayson. All in all, a great cardio workout.
From victoria to Goldstream turn left onto Sooke Lake Road, left onto humpback road. Follow until the park parking lot, about 1 km.
The park can also be accessed from Sooke Road (highway 14), North onto Humpback Road. It's about 2 km from Sooke Road. Be careful on Humpback road, it's single lane in some areas with many blind spots.

UpsideGreat short hike. Easy access and great trail markings. CommentI was surprised to see the amount of trail "reinforcement" (chain link markers along the exposed rocks).

UpsideParking now avalable, upgraded to official CRD Park status. Well marked at top CommentThis is a great new park. During good weather the views are spectacular. CRD Parks have provided a nice parking lot with washrooms! It is also close to the proposed Trans-Canada trail.
