Galloping Goose Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"Like other trails developed on railroad beds, the Galloping Goose has no steep inclines. The beautiful 15-mile stretch described here meanders through forests, with a scattering of small farms and occasional glimpses of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains beyond. It has a well-maintained gravel surface suitable for mountain or touring bicycles (but a little rough for racing bikes). Most of the ride is completely separated from any roadway. You'll hear the chirping of birds and smell the intoxicating aroma of forests rather than the sounds and smells of automobile traffic. Terrain: although the region is hilly, the trail is nearly flat. It has a well-maintained gravel surface suitable for any bike with medium or large cross-section tires."
--Todd Litman & Suzanne Kort, Best Bike Rides in the Pacific Northwest (The Globe Pequot Press).
This is an excellent trail for beginners to intermediates. It is mostly flat and is beautiful. It passes through fields before entering the edge of Victoria, BC and then passes by residential areas with wonderful landscapes. You can end by the harbor and the pubs/restaurants are nearby!
