Setting out from the trailhead, you will initially follow along a very well-maintained gravel path to the north before splitting off to the east on a route towards the summit of Mount Manuel Quimper. From here, you will crossover several streams and begin a gradual climb uphill that will produce some amazing views over the surrounding area. Once you reach the summit, you will have an awesome sightline south across the Sooke Inlet and east towards Victoria.
