      As one of B.C's largest growing municipalities, of its own modest size, Sooke is poised to become the outdoor recreation capital of Vancouver Island- with mountain biking as the prominent jewel in its heavily encrusted crown.

      The region includes Sooke, East Sooke, Otter Point and most of the Sooke Hills.
