I've been to the tops of most mountains in the Metchosin & East Sooke area but somehow I had left out Mt. Matheson until now. All I can say is WOW. You have a nearly 360' panoramic view of the Sooke Hills, Pacific Ocean, Olympic Mountains, Metchosin, and even downtown Victoria. With a summit of 963ft it is the highest point in East Sooke and features giant old-growth Douglas fir trees and rich wetlands. If you can find this spot you're in for a treat!
