Mount Manuel Quimper Trail Description

The Mount Manuel Quimper Trail offers a lot in the way of scenic vistas with picturesque views and little in the way of challenging terrain, making this an ideal hiking route for casual hikers looking for an intermediate length trail. 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. After wrapping up your time at the summit, follow the trail as it loops around the backside of the mountain and descends towards the main trail. Follow this back through the forest to return to the parking area.
