DOG FRIENDLY (as long as your furry friends are friendly and well behaved - safety of participants first)

This will be a long hike through some less walk on trails which may include somebushwalking . We will hike via Peden lake.

A nice excursion in the Sooke Hills; we will visit Mt Empress. This is the highest peak in the Capital Reigonal District. It affords beautiful, panoramic views

We'll meet at Thetis over flow parking lot on the corner of Six Mile Road and Atkins Road and organize carpooling arrangements.


Bring a townie for gas to give who those who drive.

We'll hike at a moderate pace and have a break with Snack at the summit.

It will be a strenuous hike and should be between 5 to 6 hours and around 14 km.

This is a hike in the Sooke Wilderness area on existing trails, mostly in a forest environment. Trails may be rocky, gravely, slippery or muddy.


Wear proper hiking shoes or boots and bring hiking poles if you have them, as they help to balance the weight and make it easier on your knees. Also bring rain gear, layered clothes, water and a snack.

BRING A HEAD LAMP WITH FRESH BATTERIES - NO SHARING FOR SAFETY REASONS. HOST WILL ENSURE EVERYONE HAS SOME LIGHTS.
