Victoria Hiking Trail RatingSooke is a wonderful coastal town with amazingly deep and beautiful forests, lakes and rivers.  The Sooke Potholes is an extraordinary example of this.  Over thousands of years, swirling water have created amazingly deep pools in this otherwise, massive and crashing river.  This has created an astonishing river-world fun park of sorts.  Cliffs, fallen trees, rock outcrops over the river.

Nothing, including the river ever runs in anything close to a straight line.  So many amazing vantage points, so many unbelievable swimming spots. If you are interested in venturing further, you can follow the potholes for quite a distance.  About 3k in fact, as they snake through the river valley.  As if the place couldn't get any more interesting, it does.

There is a ruin (of sorts) of an unfinished convention centre, long abandoned, though magnificent in it size and complexity.  It would have been quite a building, with its enormous fireplace and huge log beam construction.  Now it remains as a curiosity, perched on the edge of a cliff, far above the Sooke Potholes.
