Easy trail for a stock 4x4 1/2 ton

Hi! Me and my girlfriend are out exploring the island I’m here all the time for work but never get the chance to really do anything. I’m staying in the sooke area just wondering if there is any trails I could explore that a stock 4x4 1/2 Chevy would make it up around sooke / Renfrew.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
Feel free to text me if you have something in mind or if somebody wanted to do an easy run with me.

Welcome! There was a similar discussion here recently: https://www.vioffroad.com/forum/general-chatter/suitable-trucks

There’s a lot to explore, enjoy!

I'm going to give you directions to a spot that will drive the renfrew locals nuts.

There are 2 lakes up in the mountains above port renfrew and avatar grove that are called "twin lakes". Its a great swim spot, with a dock and canoe that's left there all year round. The views on the way to twin lakes is also quite stunning.

From sooke you will head to port renfrew and you will want to take the gordon river main. Once you're about 20 mins up Gordon river main you will make a left on a steep road called grierson main. There are blue painted rocks on the ground at every split in the road, you just simply stay right for 3 painted rocks, then a left will take you down to the lake.

Theres also a cabin up in that area, that you can look for after you go to the lake.

Thanks for the map, Great spot, The dock could use a bit of work but pristine water.
